4th December 2012


Font size: -+

The Afrikaner community of Orania and the Xhosa community of Mnyameni in the Eastern Cape will be signing a Memorandum of Understanding on Tuesday 11th December 2012 that will pave the way for greater cooperation between South African communities wishing to function against a background of greater self reliance. This is yet another case of communicating and sharing opinions with like-minded groups that Orania has been pursuing over the past 21 years, and promotes the idea of communities increasingly taking responsibility for their own development.
Media representatives are welcome to attend the ceremony at Upper Mnyameni which is situated about 13 km north-west of Keiskammahoek in the Eastern Cape. The content of the Agreement will be revealed and discussed and leaders of the two communities will be available to explain practical steps and implications.
The aim of said cooperation is to decrease the position of dependency in which most South African communities find themselves and to develop a model of cooperation that might enable communities to promote each others economies. Orania and Mnyameni intend working together in the fields of agriculture, education and tourism in particular.
Details of ceremony:
Place: The home of The Traditional Leader, Mr. Siphiwe Mdledle, Upper Mnyameni, Eastern Cape.
