Along with the invite to attend the launch dinner of the FS department of Sports, Art, Culture and Recreation; Arts in Schools, Boxing league and Mine Dancing competition last week came a tiny miniature boxing glove that now does wonder as a key holder, despite finding a useful use to it, the invite itself could not go to waste.
Now, I often find myself contemplating on the idea and thought of whether I should ever attend government doohs, but then without them we would never be in the know about the latest developments in this arts industry of ours. So seeing that the event took place right across our offices, I tightened my shoe laces, unbuttoned my jacket and headed for the dooh.
Besides the event starting an hour later as suggested, it was a successful event that honored the great mine workers of our region and uplifted and encouraged schools and communities to invest in the arts as there is the future in the industry. Me Mmathabo, executive mayor of the Lejweleputswa region, welcomed all guests from as far field as the KZN and Northern Cape at the prestigious event, thanks were given to mining bosses for allowing the department to engage with them in the mine dancing competition.
With 30 minutes of speeches and a salmon tartar starter, I had to ditch the formal dooh for Rayxor Minora’s event at Coobah, its not my fault official cannot stick to their schedule!
