South Africa to Celebrate Heritage Day with a BBQ 5 Years, 1 Month ago Karma: 0  
South Africans across the country will celebrate their rich and diverse culture on Thursday 24 September, the country's national Heritage Day.

During September, in line with the Heritage Month theme of "celebrating South African craft", the Department of Arts and Culture has been paying tribute to the crafters, many from rural areas, who have contributed to the development of the country's rich heritage.

South Africa's crafters have over the years produced a vibrant craft legacy using natural resources and recycled products such as plastic bags, paper, cardboard boxes and wire.

Although the craft industry has moved from being an expression of artistry to entrepreneurship, practitioners still lack protection from exploitation.

On Wednesday, Arts and Culture Minister Lulu Xingwana will host a gala dinner in Polokwane, where the department and the Old Mutual Foundation will sign a memorandum of understanding to support crafters.

The main Heritage Day event will take place in the rural village of Moroke in Tubatse, which falls under the Greater Sekhukhune District in Limpopo province.

Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe will join the people of Limpopo when they kick-start the day's activities with a cleansing ceremony at Tjate Heritage site in Sekhukhune.

The cleansing ceremony takes place every year as part of the festival, which commemorates the legacy of King Sekhukhune I, who resisted British colonialists on the battlefield at Tjate in Ntsoaneng village in 1878.

The celebrations became an annual event in 2004, when the statue of King Sekhukhune I was unveiled in Ntsoaneng, where women and children used to seek refuge in times of war.

During the annual ceremony, the Kgoshikgolo (supreme king) slaughters a goat and the elders come together to pay respects to the Sekhukhune ancestors.

The cleansing ceremony will be performed by both traditional leaders and healers.

Motlanthe will be accompanied by Xingwana, Limpopo Premier Cassel Mathale and other senior government officials. Later in the day, the Deputy President will deliver a keynote address at the Ntwampe sports grounds at the village.

In North West province, Premier Maureen Modiselle will speak at the provincial Heritage Day celebrations at the Maruleng Stadium in the Moses Kotane Local Municipality.

KwaZulu-Natal province is expected to host over 900 athletes from different parts of the country at the 5th annual National Indigenous Games at the weekend.

Some one ask me, what is the rift gold? I only can tell you, it is a vitual fortune in the Rift. What’s the Rift? It is a popular online game. In the game, you have more rift Platinum, more higher level you can get. If you are a new player that have no enough gold, you can spend money to buy rift gold on the net.
