Greetings from eThekwini Municipality, South Africa
August is Women’s Month in South Africa and this year the theme is “Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Women’s Charter and 20 Years of Freedom: Moving Women’s Agenda Forward!”
In eThekwini, the Municipality held a two day Women Empowerment Program which has capped by an evening keynote address from Deputy Mayor Nomvuzo Shabalala who has spent more than 18 years as a councillor serving in various portfolios in the Municipality, eThekwini’s second citizen and Chairperson of the Economic Development and Planning Committee. She inspired us with messages about self-sufficiency and sisterhood. As part of the evening program, fashions designed by David Thale an exciting South African designer were featured.
