“As alluded to by the MEC at the launch, this project seeks to develop the masses of NW, create jobs for our youths, and contribute to the economic emancipation of the province and identify key tourism destinations as part of local tourism.”
The gargantuan-oak MEC for Sport and Recreation Humbulani Chauke, spared no words by
encouraging the people of NW to come out in large numbers to support and rally behind the festival.
“This is your project and for it to be a success, the people of this province must show pride in it by supporting and talking about it, from taxi ranks to homes, from churches to shebeens from
sporting events to community gatherings,” he requested.
“Such events would propel other private businesses to come on board provided there’s
unity and belonginess amongst us. If we show a united front every one would like associate
with us but when that is not achieved such events would not be possible,” he says.
