The Minister of Home Affairs, Malusi Gigaba, is to brief members of the media on the launch of the inaugural South African Migrant Awards aimed primarily at recognising outstanding migrants residing in the country who contribute immensely to South Africa’s development in various fields. Secondarily, the Awards will acknowledge South Africans contributing to the development of the African continent through their work in areas of need and strife.
It is expected that hosting the South African Migrants Awards annually will also bring about change in perceptions on migrants and foreign nationals and become one of the key enablers for tolerance, social cohesion and integration in South African communities.
Members of the media are invited as follows:
Date: Sunday, 10 May 2015
