TRAVEL ADVISORY TO PREVENT THE IMPORTATION OF EBOLA INTO SOUTH AFRICA 

The purpose of this advisory is to notify travellers about the Ebola disease outbreak and inform them about preventative measures they can take and what Government is doing.

On 25th May 2017 The Consulate General of the Republic of South Africa in Chicago hosted the Africa Day celebrations . Africa Day is celebrated throughout the world to commemorate the founding of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), now African Union in 1963. The celebrations, among others reinforce African solidarity, unity in diversity, challenges and successes, and the economic potential of the African continent and its people. Most importantly, the year 2017 also marks the centenary of the late Oliver Reginald Tambo, who played an integral role in the liberation of South Africa. He dedicated his life to the pursuit of equality and justice for all South Africans and was one of the founding fathers of our constitutional democracy. The Consul General in Chicago saw ithe importance to take this opportunity and promote dialogue, African unity and awareness among people of African descent and local people.  The Consulate hosted a seminar reflecting on the sacrifices that were made for the unity of the African continent and the liberation we enjoy today, more especially in South Africa. Professor Clement Adibe from DuPaul University was the moderator of a panel discussion the panel consisted of Consul General Vuyiswa Tulelo, a local community activist Mr Joseph Harrington and Mr Olivier Kamanzi President and CEO of Africa Global Chamber of Commerce.  The conversation inspired and encouraged continuous work towards achieving an Africa we want and which our forefathers (Oliver Tambo, Nelson Mandela, Nkwame Nkuruma, etc, )fought for.
