Press accident
This is a muvenda president. Unfortunately, he chooses to communicate in English, despite knowing very well that he is not good when it comes to communicating in that language. Can a person play an important role in an organisation or institution even though he or she cannot communicate well in English? Many Africans struggle when attending a meeting or interview , as the conversation is normaly in English.
The media can make or break an individual’s reputation. Does the ability to express oneself in English or any other language that is foreign to one’s culture mean that one is intelligent?
In this art performance MBA (the first 3 letters of the artist’s name) is reading like someone with no self confidence.

Mvenda is a visual documentary that will showcase how distinctive Venda Culture is, full of vibrant colours, dance, food, pottery and wood crafting. A culture that is not only practised in Limpopo province but also in the cities like Johannesburg.

This event is brought to you by ABSA, the French Institute of South Africa and Alliance Française of Johannesburg.

Venue: Alliance Française of Johannesburg, 17, Lower park Drive Corner Kerry Road, 2122 Johannesburg.
Free entrance.
