Diplo­matic corps to en­gage with pub­lic

Saturday Star - - NATION -

Radebe and Ma­jola said they would also visit the Pelind­aba Nu­clear Re­search Cen­tre in the North­west to re­as­sure staff that op­er­a­tions at the com­pany would imp­prove at the helm of the new board. | THE Depart­ment of In­ter­na­tional Re­la­tions and Co-op­er­a­tion (Dirco) will host the an­nual Diplo­matic Funfair at the Dit­song Pi­o­neer Mu­seum in Sil­ver­ton, Pre­to­ria, to­day.

The event serves as a plat­form to ed­u­cate the pub­lic about diplo­macy by bring­ing to­gether em­bassies ac­cred­ited to South Africa to pro­mote their re­spec­tive coun­tries through cre­ative ex­pres­sions such as arts, mu­sic and global cui­sine.

The oc­ca­sion will take place against the back­drop of the cen­te­nary of late pres­i­dent Nel­son Man­dela’s birth which is be­ing cel­e­brated by the gov­ern­ment of South Africa and the world at large. To this end, the funfair will be themed: “Hon­our­ing Madiba – a global cham­pion of hu­man rights, peace and rec­on­cil­i­a­tion”.

It is ex­pected that the event will be at­tended by more than

1 000 guests. The event presents an op­por­tu­nity for mem­bers of the pub­lic to net­work and en­gage with representatives and of­fi­cials of gov­ern­ment, the busi­ness sec­tor, diplo­matic corps and civil so­ci­ety or­gan­i­sa­tions. |
