The purpose of the visits was to listen to the needs and views of the community regarding their development, and devise strategies on how these can find expression in the municipal IDP for the 2015/16 financial year

 

Project to retain struggle history

In a bid to make the Fort Beaufort Museum appeal to all races, retain struggle history and praise unsung local heroes, the department of sport, recreation, arts and culture (Dsrac) launched the “room of struggle” exhibition, on 13 February.

The department has renovated the museum, creating what it calls “room of struggle exhibition” which has pictures of both local and national struggle heroes.

 

Dsrac MEC Pemmy Majodina said the project was part of a transformation agenda in which museums would reflect the national identity.
