Young and old walked away with prizes and trophies. They were praised for their achievements and they were proud of everything they had accomplished.
Advocate Lyndon Bouah, Chief Director of Sport at DCAS, welcomed everyone present and extended his congratulations to every athlete. He said, “The role of the Western Cape Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport is to ensure an active and better Western Cape. In order to do this, we have to build partnerships with civil society, our local government and our national government. As the Department, our view is that we must enable and facilitate. I would like to wish all the nominees well tonight. It is considered a great success just to be nominated. Tonight you are all winners.”
