CUT unites to celebrate Africa Day

The Central University of Technology, Free State (CUT) celebrated Africa day on 25 May 2019, to signify Africa’s identity and unity.  Staff and students came together dressed in their different and colourful African attires. The day was filled with lots of fun and activities where they enjoyed cultural performances, music and food from different African countries. Exhibitions of different stalls, Pan African fashion show, parade, and arts & crafts formed part of the day.

This year’s theme “Healthy Lifestyle Prolongs Life” was selected to show the link between an unhealthy lifestyle and premature mortality.

Prof. Alfred Ngowi, Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Research, Innovation and Engagement, said that Africa day is an important day for the whole of Africa. “On this day, we celebrate our diversities, as CUT employees and students, we reflect on the successes and challenges as CUT in Africa. The objective is to create, maintain and increase awareness for the public at large. The 2019 theme “Healthy Lifestyle Prolongs Life” was selected to emphasise the significant relationship between a healthy lifestyle and premature mortality. This theme is in line with aspirations of the 2016 agenda of the African Union, which is prosperous Africa based on inclusive growth and sustainable development.”
