Struggle vets to tell their stories

2013-10-30 00:00

THE Department of Arts and Culture has invited the public to a two-day Struggle Veterans Summit happening at Coastlands Hotel in Durban tomorrow and Friday.

The department says this is in an effort to fill the gap that exists in the archives of the province.

Spokesperson Mluleki Mntungwa said the aim of the summit was to create a platform for struggle veterans to share their experiences and the contribution they made in the liberation of South Africa.

“Secondly, it is to record their personal accounts on the liberation struggle so as to archive them for future generations,” he said.

The summit begins at 8.30 am tomorrow.
