IN TWEETS: South Africans celebrate their Heritage

2018-09-24 18:55

From dressing up in various animal skins to adorning colourful outfits, South Africans have shown that the country is a rich tapestry of beautiful heritage. 

Some came out in their Xibelani (a knee length skirt typically worn by Tsonga women), while others came out in their traditional attire representing the heritage of Pedi, Tswana, Xhosa, Sotho Zulu and VhaVenda people - among other beautiful tribes.   

The celebrations were not limited to attire, but food and traditional beer. Some showcased their Umqombothi - a beer made from maize, maize malt, sorghum malt, yeast and water; while others showcased mopane worms.  

For others, Heritage Day was a day in which they braai and enjoy a free day with family and friends.
