Speech - Dep Min Oosthuizen - South Africa Evening Ekhaya Wellington - 13 September 2011

It gives me tremendous pride and pleasure to be here today to address you at this South African evening. This is a historic occasion as it marks the 1st time that South Africa has hosted an Ekhaya for a single coded event such as this Rugby World Cup. Ekhaya is the Zulu word for “home” and is associated with all the warm feelings of home that are particularly special to a South African. Ekhaya is a hospitality program known as our “Home Away from Home”. It is amongst others, a tool that uses sport to showcase our country.
