Outsiders attend cookout

Fun lovers arriving from outside Bela-Bela outnumbered locals during the inaugural cookout held at the township’s Moloto Stadium on Sunday, 24 September.

But those who arrived made sure they looked stunning in their traditional attire, ranging from the colourful Sepedi to the very much in vogue “doek” (headscarf).

The throng of visitors, mostly from Gauteng and elsewhere outside Bela-Bela, were treated to mouthwatering different African cuisine dishes prepared by both men and women. 

Arts and crafts from across the cultures were on display, with some of the tourists snapping up collectables.

Black Rose events management company CEO, Matome Sebelebele, said he was satisfied with the turnout, although much more needed to be done to take the process forward.

He gave the example of a multi-national cool drink brand, which he said at the beginning sold a total of 25 bottles for the first financial year, comparable to present-day millions of products consumed worldwide.
