Minister Dlamini Zuma Arrives in Washington, 9 January 2006

Washington - South African Foreign Minister Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma touched down in Washington, United States of America today Monday 9 January 2006 ahead of the scheduled hand over of a donation from the South African government to victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Minister Dlamini Zuma is expected to hand over the donation of R2 million to Howard University as a gesture of goodwill, solidarity and support on Wednesday, 11 January 2006.

The choice of Howard University as a site where the contribution will be made was influenced by the fact that the University has made an amount of US$ 1000 available towards the studies of students affected by the Hurricane and also expedited the enrollment process of students thus affected with a particular focus on students from Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.
