Presidency Deputy Minister to host South Africa’s rising stars

Profile Image: 
The Deputy Minister in the Presidency, Thembi Siweya, will host South Africa’s young trailblazers in the field of sports, arts and literature at the Union Building on 6 May 2021.

The purpose of the session is to celebrate these prominent young people's talent and explore possible collaboration with government. The session is intended to kickstart Africa Month and position the youth at the centre of Africa's development. The National Development Plan (NDP) calls for all of us to build a better Africa and the World. These young people have already shown that they have the potential to carry the baton and catapult Africa to greater heights.

The rising stars include the renowned Praise Poet, Masinga Xivambu, who once ushered President Ramaphosa to Parliament for the State of the Nation Address; Simthandile Tshabalala, the award-winning young golfer, an emerging Author, Angel Mkhawana, actor and young entrepreneur Cornet Mamabolo. 

The session will be hosted in partnership with the Brand South Africa under their play your part programme.
