Education remains a priority for the South African Government, South Africa’s new Ambassador to Germany Phumelele Stone Sizani has said.
On 4th November 2016 he hosted at the Embassy a small and intimate get-together to meet members of the Diplomatic Corps and partners and friends of the Embassy and the Republic of South Africa.
Ambassador Sizani said peace and reconciliation were essential to South African politics, adding that they could only be achieved by “talking and not fighting”.
The upcoming Binational Commission to be held on 15th and 16th November in Berlin is very important to both countries, he said.
The new ambassador said he was looking forward to working with the German Government, South African and German businesses, South African and German citizens alike to consolidate bilateral political and economic relations, for the mutual benefit of the peoples of both countries, and to fulfil the mandate entrusted to him by the President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma.
