South Africa celebrates Heritage Month.
South Africa celebrates Heritage Month.

South Africa takes pride in being a diverse nation that boasts 11 official languages and nine provinces, each with its unique and rich cultural roots.

And this year perhaps it’s more important than ever to celebrate who we are and what we stand for. The pandemic has affected everyone’s lives in one way or another, and it’s a good moment to take time to appreciate our people and traditions.

Cultural conversations and celebrations give us the opportunity to remind ourselves of who we are and to build our nation, says thought-leader in African philosophy, research scientist and director at the research institute Madisebo University College, Zulumathabo Zulu.
