DIRCO to host the 2020 edition of the Ubuntu Awards

The Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) is scheduled to host the 2020 edition of the annual Ubuntu Awards in Cape Town on Saturday, 15 February 2020.

It is expected that President Cyril Ramaphosa will deliver the keynote address at the event, which will be held under the theme: Celebrating Excellence in Diplomacy Working Together to Build a Better Africa and a Better World.

The purpose of the Ubuntu Awards is to recognise South African citizens for their distinguished service and contribution to promoting South Africas national interests and values across the world.

The event takes place traditionally after the opening of Parliament and brings together captains of industry, civil society leaders, members of Cabinet and other eminent persons in addition to Ambassadors and High Commissioners accredited to South Africa.
