Bee industry strategy to sustain the honey-bee population and manage apiculture in the Western Cape: management improvement plan

The Western Cape Department of Agriculture has published the Bee industry strategy to sustain the honey-bee population and manage apiculture in the Western Cape: management improvement plan. This strategy follows the publication of Sustaining the honey bee population and apiculture in the Western Cape: final strategy report in October 2017. "This strategic engagement was born out of the need to address a number of critical issues that are hampering the productivity and sustainability of the apiculture industry and the honey bee (and by implication the fruit and berry industries) in the Western Cape. The process was initiated and funded by the Western Cape Department of Agriculture (WCDoA) and facilitated by Agrifusion as appointed by WCDoA."

Africa Day
Africa Day, 25 May

"From 1959 to 1963 African Liberation Day was celebrated in Ethiopia, South Africa, Ghana and by African people in Britain, China, Soviet Union and the United States (US). Other conferences were held in January 1960 in Tunisia followed by another one in Egypt in March 1961. As more African countries became independent, the need for an organisation that would articulate aspirations of African people and their struggle arose. Consequently on 25 May 1963, leaders of 32 African nations converged in Ethiopia‘s capital Addis Ababa and formed the Organization of African Unity (OAU). Amongst other things agreed to at the formation of the OAU was to change the date of Africa Freedom Day from 15 April to 25 May. As a consequence of the change African nations celebrate Africa Day on this date." (Source: http://www.sahistory.org.za/topic/history-africa-day-25-may
