Dear Afrikan Family member,
You are cordially invited to the AFRIKAN LUNCH, 2nd December, 1pm, with the theme: “The Relevance of AFRIKAN MARRIAGE”.
This will be the last lunch of 2012 and at eBukhosini Solutions we are incredibly honoured to present this as a conversation with the couple we all aspire to be like: Mme Letta Mbulu and Rre Caiphus Semenya.
SUNDAY 2 DECEMBER, 1PM
The lunch will be on Sunday 2nd December, 1pm, at Ebukhosini Solutions, 47 Regent Street in Yeoville (between Kenmere and Bedford Streets). See map/directions here: http://tinyurl.com/8hmuh9e
A delicious plate of healthy food is available for an affordable price (R30 per plate). Tea, juice and coffee are also on sale.
This month’s theme is ““The Relevance of AFRIKAN MARRIAGE”. With many young people deciding not to get married and with high divorce statistics, we want to ask: Does marriage have any importance for the Afrikan community, or is it outdated? What does marriage mean – from an Afrikan point of view? How can we establish strong relationships and what are some of the characteristics marriage demands from us as Afrikan women and men?
Our guests this time do not need any introduction; As a radiant Pan-Afrikan couple with more than 50 years of marriage and a long and inspiring career within music, Mama Letta Mbulu and Baba Caiphus Semenya have become our role models, icons and mentors. Their high-quality work performance and maintenance of a solid, Afrikan-grounded relationship is a testimony to strength and determination.
This will be a unique opportunity to sit at the feet of Elders and take in wisdom and experience.
