Yours *TrulyJuly*

I do everything content.

 

I’m a big fan of the Cape Cultural Collective.

So when I saw they organised a community concert for Heritage Day I knew it would be great.

 

But it was so much more than that!

 

We were warmly welcomed at Bonteheuwel Civic Centre and stepped into the eclectic energy of community leaders from various backgrounds giving heartfelt speeches.

Abdu Ragmaan from the Cape Flats News offered a brief look at the history of the two communities in Langa and Bonteheuwel to understand the importance of this event.

“Bridge the Gap” can be taken literally, as there was a procession from Langa Guga S’thebe across the bridge over the M7 to the Bonteheuwel Civic Centre.

A symbolic step to bring together two neighbouring communities that usually live in fear of each other.

 

Bonteheuwel Civic Centre is packed:

 

In celebration of Heritage Day one of the traditional African music performances:

 

Kids are enjoying the programme:

 

Now that the community has led the way by bridging Langa and Bonteheuwel, the government and Cape Town City need to follow suit to help keep up the momentum going and deliver on long overdue responsibilities.
