Pretoria - Staff at the Gauteng High Court Pretoria got into the spirit of Heritage Day when most of them dressed in their traditional attire to celebrate their different cultures.
The quart yard at the court was abuzz with African music and the braai fires were ablaze.
Pretoria’s Judge President Dunstan Mlambo on Friday took time in his busy schedule to wish his staff a happy Heritage Day. Dressed in traditional attire, Judge Mlambo’s message was to embrace each and every culture. “Let us celebrate being African and let us embrace each other so that we can move forward,” he told his staff.
Chief librarian at the court, Nelisiwe Shandu, dressed in a mixture of Ndebele and Xhosa colours, said she is actually a Zulu, but she also embraced other cultures.
Heritage Day symbolises who we are as Africans. It gives definition to our cultures and it shows how diverse we are, yet we are one nation.”
