EVENT POSTPONED: 'Educating Africa' With Sam Paddock And Thabo Mbeki - New Date, New Venue

The Educating Africa event, featuring speakers S'onqoba Maseko, Sam Paddock and Former South African President Thabo Mbeki, has been postponed by one day. The event was originally scheduled for September 13 2018, and is now being held one day later, on Friday September 14th 2018. 


The venue has also changed. Originally scheduled to be hosted at St. Stithians College, the event has been moved to the stunning The Birdhouse venue on Owl Street, in Braamfontein. 

The reason for the event being postponed was due to a pressing engagement with President Mbeki, that forced the change. 

Fred Roed, CEO of Heavy Chef, announced that the event is almost fully booked, but anyone with tickets for the 13th that could not make the 14th can get a full refund. "We apologise for any inconvenience caused," says Roed. "However, we remain deeply excited about the event content and the stellar line-up of speakers. This event will tackle the most important aspect of our future in Africa: the education of our continent's population." 

Steve Pinto, proprietor of The Birdhouse in Braamfontein, says: "We are honoured to host such an incredible agenda of thought leaders. Our venue is perfectly suited for this auspicious occasion."
