Most people I know genuinely believe that the 25th of May was a very special day for the emerging African community in Australia, as the “Africa Day” festivities breathed new life into the city hall. For me, personally, it was a day like no other. A day to remember.
More importantly, it was the first “Africa Day” celebration in South Australia. And Michael Harbison, the Lord Mayor of Adelaide city was there, as the keynote speaker. So was the Kenyan High Commissioner to Australia, His Excellency John Lepi Lanyansunya. Other dignitaries and local heroes also made their presence felt.
In fact, the occasion was celebrated in style, as African-Australians graced the city hall in their majestic robes; obviously appreciating the moment.
