Civic Dialogue

The Zimbabwe Pastor's Forum will hold a civic dialogue on Saturday at 1pm at the Methodist Youth Centre, Dionke Street, Soweto, Johannesburg in an effort to promote social harmony between South Africans and the millions of Zimbabweans now living among them.
With the motto, "Sharing Experiences, B

uilding Trust,” the dialogue will include individuals sharing their personal stories. Organizations that work on relevant issues such as jobs, crime, and asylum applications will also share their perspective. Invited organizations include Popcru, Cosatu, South African Police Service, Lawyers for Human Rights, and the SA Human Rights Commission. There will also be time for discussion amongst participants in small groups.
Steven Chiadzwa, Chairman of the Zimbabwe Pastors Forum, said: “It is crucially important both for Zimbabweans and for South Africans to hear each other’s stories. Only through this sort of personal encounter, facilitated by religious leaders, can the growing rift within the New South Africa be healed.”
A Day of Prayer for Zimbabwe is scheduled for July 1 in Johannesburg and July 8 in Cape Town. For more information, call 011-614-6218 or e-mail [email protected].
