Old Harbour Museum celebrates women

The Old Harbour Museum celebrated Women’s Day at the Whale House on Friday 24 August with a high tea.

Splendidly organised by Gcobisa Mapuma and Gaynor Gillion of the museum, the sumptuous tea was for the mature ladies of Siyazama, Zwelihle, who donned their Imibhaco (Xhosa traditional wear) to enter the best dressed traditional wear competition especially for this event.

“These women all looked so magnificent that a draw was done instead,” said Elizabeth du Toit of the Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport at Old Harbour Museum.

“After tea, the ladies were invited to share their stories and experiences during the spate of riots in Zwelihle, along with how the demonstrations affected them,” Du Toit explained.

“I welcomed the women to the event and expressed my joy and appreciation of their presence, while Whale House assistant Priscilla Qikila translated for those who preferred to speak in their mother tongue and thanked the ladies for attending.”
