The eighth National Imbizo Focus Week kick started yesterday, 09th July 2018 and will end on the 15th of July 2018 under the theme: “Together we move South Africa forward.”
This year’s Imbizo Focus Week takes place during the year in which we celebrate the centenary of two freedom fighters, Tata Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela under the theme: “Be the legacy”, as well as Mama Albertina Nontsikelelo Sisulu under the theme: “A Woman of fortitude”. The centenary celebrations of these two icons have a significant impact in bringing diverse South Africans together. These celebrations are meant to highlight the principles and values espoused by these great Africans and to galvanise the spirit of national pride and Ubuntu.
The Deputy Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform Ms Candith Mashego-Dlamini together with local government leadership, Snr government officials and local stakeholders will be visiting a project in Jozini, KwaZulu-Natal as part of the Imbizo Focus Week.
