'Celebrating Africa Day': Public lecture

By Yolanda Booyzen

Posted on 17 May 2011

On 25 May 1963, the leaders of the independent African states established the first African intergovernmental organisation; the Organisation of African Unity (OAU). The OAU was tranformed into the African Union (AU), which was inaugurated in Durban 2002.



Unfortunately, Dr Sallah was, at the last minute, undable to come to South Africa. We therefore regret to inform all those interested that the public lecture has been cancelled.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
