South African Ambassador visits the University of Würzburg05/30/2023
The Julius-Maximilians-University of Würzburg was pleased to welcome H.E. Ambassador Stone Sizani from South Africa on May 27, 2023 at Sanderring to the photo exhibition on Nelson Mandela. He was accompanied by the singer Thabilé, who received the Festival Award at the opening of the Africa festival the day before.
Ambassador Sizani was imprisoned on Robben Island for five years together with Nelson Mandela and was impressed and deeply moved by the pictures.
Dr. Oschmann, head of the Africa Festival, offered in the presence of the university president Prof. Dr. Paul Pauli to handover the photo exhibition for a whole year, so that many more visitors can get these exciting visual impressions of the former president of the Republic of South Africa and one of the greatest personalities of the last decades.
In view of the numerous research projects of the institutions and researchers organized in the Forum Africa Centre of JMU as well as the long-standing, intensive relationships with partner universities and institutions in Africa, we are very pleased about this publicly visible commitment with and to the continent of Africa, which is also becoming increasingly important for us.
