Radio 2000 celebrates the best of Africa on Africa Day

Posted by radio On May - 24 - 2017

Africa Day marks the day when the Organisation of Africa Unity was formed and 30 of 32 African leaders signed a founding charter in Addis Ababa on 25 May 1963. The Africa Day celebration acknowledges the progress that we as Africans have made.  On this day there is an opportunity for South Africans to reconnect and recommit themselves to develop a better Africa and a better world.

As part of Radio 2000’s monthly mandate themes, we will again celebrate this Africa Day (25th May) in a unique and memorable way by hosting several African Embassies and High Commissioners at the SABC Head office in Auckland Park, Johannesburg between 09h00- 15h00.  Dignitaries from 10 African countries are expected to fill the Radio Park foyer, for a day of cultural celebrations that will include showcasing their culture through exhibiting their food, music, fashion and culture at large.  By honouring this important day the station aims to educate and inform listeners about the history of African culture and civilisation and share all the great African cultural practices that shape the continent. The station hopes to encourage social cohesion amongst all Africans on the day.

 

Radio 2000’s Station Manager Puleng Thulo comments, “South is part of Africa and it is important for us to stay close to one another and support our African brothers and sisters on the continent, to build a better Africa for future generations.  On Africa day we celebrate the best in music, food, fashion and culture from each of these amazing countries. It is important that we tell the African story correctly and we promote and share what makes us proud to be African and most importantly preserve our rich African heritage.”
