Deputy of Art and Culture-Ms Rejoice Mabudafhasi_blogAs a build-up to the National Day of Reconciliation, Arts and Culture Deputy Minister, Ms Rejoice Mabudafhasi will pay a special visit to Ekuphumleni Old Aged Home, Ezwide Township and Elizabeth Stuurman Old Aged Home, Korten Township on 10 and 11 December 2015 respectively in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape. The purpose of the visit is to promote national identity and encourage them to tell their reconciliation stories and commit themselves to move South Africa forward by working for unity.

The 2015 Reconciliation Month takes place under the theme, “Bridging the divide: Building a common South African nationhood towards a national developmental state.”  The theme seeks to remind us that we should strengthen relations with fellow South Africans and those who reside in the country, build a future where we all live together in harmony and embrace the common ties that bind us rather than focus on that which divides us as a nation.

During her visit, the Deputy Minister Mabudafhasi will also hoist the national flag as part of the Department of Arts and Cultures’ Flag in Every School Campaign” which amongst others seeks to promote national identity, nation building and social cohesion and instill the spirit of patriotism.
