Minister Pandor to deliver a keynote address at the Gala Dinner function hosted by the Charlotte Mannya-Maxeke Institute to honour DIRCO’s role in preserving Mama Charlotte Maxeke’s legacy

The Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Dr Naledi Pandor, will, this evening, deliver a keynote address at the Gala Dinner function, hosted by the Charlotte Mannyi-Maxeke Institute in partnership with Freedom Park to honour the Department of International Relations and Cooperation’s (DIRCO) role in preserving Mama Charlotte Maxeke’s legacy.

Amongst the dignitaries to attend the function, are the South African Heads of Mission deployed across the globe, who are currently in Pretoria attending a four-day conference, which started on 07 – 10 April 2022.

The Charlotte Mannya-Maxeke Institute has earmarked 2022, as the year to continue the work and legacy in line with the principles of #Maxekism, meant to assist with building and sustaining a nation that develops its communities towards education, value-based leadership and just and equitable society.

When Government declared 2021 as the Year of Charlotte Maxeke, DIRCO developed a range of organic, transformative, and impactful legacy projects. It decided to celebrate Mama Charlotte Maxeke beyond 2021 and turned the celebrations into a living legacy in a manner that captures her life stories, lessons, and memories.

The intention is for future generations to learn from her unparalleled leadership and values.

The Gala Dinner Function will be held as follows:

Date: Saturday, 09 April 2022

Venue: Freedom Park, Pretoria

Time: 18h30 for 19h00
