Media Alert: Minister Mbombo to Announce UNESCO World Heritage Site Nomination

22 September 2014

Tomorrow, 23 September 2014, Cultural Affairs and Sport Minister, Dr Nomafrench Mbombo, will make a major announcement regarding the Western Cape Government’s nomination to UNESCO for a number of our Provincial Heritage Sites to be awarded World Heritage Site status.

The Minister will also make an announcement about other sites which have been declared Provincial Heritage Sites through a process initiated by Heritage Western Cape.

These announcements come at the back of the Minister’s extensive visits to a number of our heritage sites across the province during this Heritage Month.

Much has been done by the provincial government to recognise and celebrate the Cape’s Colourful Heritage and we believe these achievements are a culmination of such efforts.

There will be opportunities for interviews and photographs.

Date:  Tuesday, 23 September 2014

Time:  12h00

Venue: Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport: DCAS Ministry Boardroom, Floor 8, Protea Assurance Building, Green Market Square, Cape Town CBD.
