Minister Speeches 2017 - 2015
Our country is turning twenty one in three months time. We have spent more than 350 years under conditions of colonialism and apartheid.
I am pleased that you have joined us here today as we gather together to pave a direction for the social cohesion advocates’ programme.
As Dept of Arts and Culture we are proud to be the official sponsor of the 16th edition of the much-loved Cape Town International Jazz Festival. This Festival occupies a prominent space in the cultural calendar of all jazz lovers.
It is indeed a great honor for me to stand before you as your servant in this new year, 2015. I stand on this historic platform twenty five years after Tat’u Madiba gave his first public address in almost three decades of incarceration.
