Inheritors Community Achievement Awards to honour inspiring stories

2016-08-31 06:00

THIS year the eighth Inheritors Community Achievement Awards, also known as Indondo Awards, will honour, among others, the first station manager of Metro FM – Koos Radebe.

Radebe served as Metro FM station manager from 1986 to 1994 where he put many radio personalities on the map and sent the radio station to new heights.

The honoraries were announced by founder of the wards, Reverend Caleb­ Mbokazi, at a media briefing on Tuesday at Devon House. The annual awards will take place on 3 September at the Project Gateway Old Prison Hall.

This year there are 15 categories, including the honorary lifetime public service award and community development media award.

“The awards honour people who shape and change the community.

“Our objective is to consider champions of civic activism by recognising legacies, the impact or heritage of those organisations, places, partnerships and individuals who have sustained themselves over time for the benefit of generations, and leaders who use their skills, effort and resources­ to uplift and empower the forgotten people and places,” said Mbokazi.

PMB gospel duo, Nathi and Nkanyiso­, will receive the Best Gospel Artistry and Traditional Music and Culture award.

Others who will also receive awards are Ukhozi FM news reader Themba Lamantungwa, Pixley Shabangu­, Dr Simon Zwelibanzi Mbokazi and Reverend Sipho Nhlengethwa.

Last year the Indondo awards honoured­ Joe Thloloe and Sam Nzima­.

A prayer will be held in honour of past awardees who have died, including The Soul Brothers, David Masondo, Dr Joshua Hadebe and founding editor of Echo, Khaba Mkhize.

The awards start at 9am.
