Grand Celebration of Africa Day in Oslo

African Ambassadors together with State Secretary Brattskar


The South African Oslo Mission co-hosted the Africa Day celebrations together with its African counterparts.

The afternoon was filled with speeches, musical entertainment and stands where the different African embassies displayed some of their mantelpieces, promotional material and culinary treats. Attendees included Ambassadors from the African embassies in Oslo, leaders of the Pan-African Society in Oslo, MFA representatives; State Secretary Hans Brattskar (Conservatives) who currently serves as the Governor of the African Development Bank, members of the diplomatic corps, notable business contacts as well as friends of Africa.

The event´s focus was naturally on unifying the African continent, and both the speeches and entertainment paid a tribute to this. The speakers were HE Ambassador Nadia M. E. Gofoun of the Sudan Embassy and the Director of the Centre for African Culture (CAK), Mr Barth Niava.

The event started with an energetic dance performance and thereafter the Director of CAK, Mr Barth Niava, delivered some welcoming words, followed by an engaging speech by Ambassador Gofoun, where she paid a great homage to the AU, the achievements of Africa as a whole, as well as pointing towards the challenges and opportunities the continent may meet when entering a new era, emphasizing the importance of standing together – for a brighter future. The guests thereafter mingled and enjoyed culinary treats; from SA´s chicken curry and boerewors to Egyptian sweets.  Then the guests were in for a firework of a musical performance by South African Zwai Mbula and extraordinarily talented singer/guitarist Le Mpendulo Mahlangu.
