Funda Mzantsi Championship

From 3 - 5 October Radio Khwezi Attended the 7th Funda Mzantsi Championship

hosted by the National Library of South Africa, in collaboration with the Department of Correctional Services and George Municipality as well as Old Mutual in Western Cape. This competition is one of the fastest growing pilot projects in South Africa that promotes a culture of reading amongst the South Africans. The annual event attracted more than 25 book clubs made up of correctional services, high schools and tertiary institutions as well as community book clubs. Members of at least seven languages participated this year and in 2017 all eleven official South African languages will participate in the championship.

The Director of “The Centre for the Book” and manager of the project, Mr Mandlakayise Matyumza, announced to the participants “I would like to inform you that next year all eleven languages will participate and we want to grow this initiative; I trust that many correctional service centres will participate next year because it is our dream to have all provinces represented here at George.”
Many dignitaries attended, among them: Ms Ndileka Booi (the Area Commissioner), Mr Mashudu Mavhungu (NLSA Executive Director), Dr Eddy Maepa (NLSA Executive Director), Mr Shanold (George Municipality), Mr Andile Nelani (Department of Correctional Services) and Prof Rocky Ralebipi-Simela (National Library and CEO of National Library of South Africa).
