JOKE OF THE MONTH

Comedy of errors

A man checked into a hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send a mail to his wife. He accidentally typed the wrong email address, and without realizing he sent the mail to a widow who has just returned from her husband's funeral. The widow decided to check her mail, expecting condolence messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message she fainted. The son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor and saw the computer screen which read:

'to my loving wife, i know you are surprised to hear from me, they have computers here and we are allowed to send mails to loved ones. I 've just been checked in. How are you and the kids? The place is really nice but am lonely here. I have made necessary arrangement for your arrival tomorrow. Expecting you darling. I can't wait to see you.'

RECONCILIATION-DAY_WEBSITE

The Reconciliation Day which is commemorated annually on 16 December, South Africans across the country are encouraged to unite as a nation and to be exemplary to the world.

South Africans commemorate 2016 Reconciliation Month under the theme “Bridging The Divide Towards A Non-Racist Society”. The theme reminds us that we should strengthen relations with fellow South Africans and those who reside in the country and build a future where all live together in harmony, and to contribute towards a better continent that will contribute to a better world.

Furthermore, to embrace the common ties that binds us rather than focus on that which divides us as a nation.

On this day, South Africans across the country are encouraged to reach out to each other, to unite as a nation, strengthen relations with fellow South Africans and those who reside in the country. This day also speaks to human rights and equality together with redress and transformation and also contribute to the AU’s Agenda 2063 vision of peace, security and development and work with the United Nations on efforts of bringing peace and stability in the world.

The origins and significance of this day can partly be traced back to the Battle of “Blood River” in 1838, which saw the Voortrekker army led by Andries Pretorius defeating the Zulu army in the Ncome Stream.

During the days of apartheid, 16 December was commemorated as the Day of the Covenant; the Day of the Vow or Dingane’s Day, which was created to commemorate a vow taken by the Voortrekkers (a group of Afrikaners who had moved inland to escape the clutches of British colonialism and imperialism) in preparation for a battle with the Zulu people, under King Dingane kaSenzangakhona, with whom they had a serious land dispute.

We wish everyone Love, Peace and Happiness in the New Year.
