Zuma to meet artists

2009-11-14 11:19

Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma will meet local artists next week to discuss their role in nation-building, the presidency said on Friday.

Spokesperson Vincent Magwenya said the meeting, primarily with musicians and actors, would fulfill a promise made during his State of the Nation address.

"(The meeting will be) to discuss their role and contribution to social cohesion and nation-building, as well as report back on issues they raised during his first meeting with them in 2008," said Magwenya.

He said issues of concern to the artists related to broadcasting content, intellectual property rights, industry unit, anti-piracy, tax education and participation in 2010 Fifa World Cup activities.

Zuma is expected to be accompanied by ministers Trevor Manuel, Collins Chabane, Lulu Xingwana, Pravin Gordhan and Blade Nzimande, among others.

The meeting will take place at the Sandton Convention Centre on Tuesday at 10 am.
