Prayer Day at //Khara Hais hosted by the Mayor

Mayor Prayer Event - 2015

The prayer session held annually by the mayor in the beginning of the festive season, was started in 2011. The mayor, Cllr LA Koloi thought it best to start praying at the four corners entering Upington. There was a time when people chose the easy way out, committing suicide on the bridge over the Orange River, alcohol and drug abuse, also signs of overall degrading moral values in our society. This year, together with the religious fraternals, we had a successful prayer event inside the Council Chambers. The mayor expressed her gratitude towards the different church organisations for their continued support with prayer towards this good cause.

Die ontstaan van Erfenisdag


Theme – “Our indigenous knowledge, our heritage: Towards the identification, promotion and preservation of South Africa’s living heritage” MET die oorgang na ’n nuwe Suid-Afrika het die Suid-Afrikaanse regering besluit dat daar ’n dag (24 September) moes wees waarop Suid-Afrikaners, van watter bevolkingsgroepe ook al, hul eie erfenis moes gedenk. Dit beteken dat niemand moes vergeet wie en wat hy is en waar hy vandaan gekom het nie sê die Burgemeester van //Khara Hais, Raadslid L. Koloi. Elkeen moes op dié dag sy eie kultuur, geskiedenis en kultuurgeskiedenis in ere hou. Hierdie dag is toe Erfenisdag genoem en is die eerste Erfenisdag op 24 September 1995 gevier. Oud-president Mandela het die woord “reënboognasie” bedink om Suid-Afrika se uiteenlopende kulture, gebruike, tradisies, geskiedenisse en tale te beskryf. Erfenisdag moes ’n viering van daardie kleurryke verskeidenheid wees. Volgens die Burgemeester van //Khara Hais Munisipaliteit gaan Erfenisdag nie net oor die eie kulture van afsonderlike groepe nie, maar veral ook oor uitreiking oor die verskillende kultuurgrense heen. Elemente van nasionale eenheid, nasiebou, versoening en landspatriotisme moet dus gedurende hierdie tyd benadruk word. Die doel is ook om veral die jeug aan te moedig om Suid-Afrikaners se gedeelde erfenis in ere te hou. Erfenis is al omskryf as “dit wat ons geërf het: die somtotaal van die natuurlewe en natuurskoon,Read more…
