“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).
