Media Statement on Fundraising Golf Day hosted by Mrs Zanele Mbeki

Mrs Zanele Mbeki will Saturday 6 August 2005 host a fundraising Golf Day at the Bryntirion Estate Golf Course in Tshwane where members of the cabinet and senior government officials will take on captains of business in a game of golf.

Proceeds of the golf day will go to the Nations Trust, an organisation (NGO) established in 1995 to fund and support youth business development. The Nations Trust has put development programmes in place with revenue from donor funds.

One of the main donors, charged with the task of arranging the golf day, the Afrikaanse Handelsinstituut (AHI), has over the past eight years, made the proceeds of its annual AHI Prestige Golf Day available to the Nations Trust to fund its programmes.

Members of Parliament have over the years supported the AHI in staging this event, which also serves as an occasion for members of the public and the private sector to meet and interact in an informal environment. In keeping with this tradition, at the August 2005 Golf Day, there will be a social programme, running concurrently with the main event, meant to cater for non-golfers from the government and the business sectors.

Mrs Mbeki has called on members of the business fraternity to support this initiative and to join in their numbers on this occasion in aid of this worthy cause.
