White hair

One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. 
She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?" 
Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white."

The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, "Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"

A glittering event was held in the city of Istanbul to inaugurate the new South African Honorary Consul, Mr Remzi Gür, who is a seasoned business leader and philanthropist, as an official South African representative in Istanbul. The event was attended by leaders in the fields of politics, business and other relevant stakeholders.

The South African Embassy holds the view that Mr Gür will continue to enhance the image of South Africa and correctly use his business connections and networks in advancing the country as a preferred investment and trade destination.

The South African Ambassador to Turkey, Mr Pule Malefane, presented Mr Gür with his letters of credence, welcomed him into the Embassy team and wished him well in his new role. He thanked Turkey for availing the services of Mr Gur to South Africa and sees this as a step towards establishing a full mission in Istanbul given its importance to enhancing trade relations between the two countries.
