Mthethwa hopes to conclude discussions on bilateral cultural relations between the two countries with Zambia’s Tourism and Arts Minister, Charles Banda, during his visit on Monday and Tuesday, the Department of Arts and Culture said in a statement in Pretoria Tuesday (Feb 7).
Mthethwa’s visit will also strengthen co-operation on liberation heritage as part of work on the Liberation Heritage Route. The route identifies and recognizes sites of historical significance in bringing freedom to South Africa.
“As South Africa marks the centenary of the birth of the great revolutionary leader, ANC President Oliver Reginald Tambo, the OR Tambo Centenary programme will also come under discussion. Minister Mthethwa will visit Oliver Tambo House in Chelstone and other landmarks of the liberation movement in exile,” the department said.
The visit is also intended to strengthen collaboration on the Africa Month programme of activities that takes place in May to commemorate the formation of the Organization of African Unity (OAU), the precursor to the African Union (AU).
