THE second Soweto Kota Festival is on next month.

Mzansi kota lovers can be assured that they can experience some of the best kotas this country has to offer at the festival.

The event is on 8 and 9 September at Walter Sisulu Square in Kliptown.

According to the organisers, this year they are going bigger and better with more stalls and lots of activities, including kids’ entertainment.

The wave of deadly listeriosis that swept Mzansi will also be addressed by food experts at the festival.

Sidwell Tshingilane, festival founder, said September was chosen because it is also tourism month. Setting it at Kliptown offers kasi cooks the perfect opportunity to show off their skills.

The festival showcases some of the most delicious township kotas, whether traditionally prepared or with a new, modern twist.

Whether you like kotas with mince, chips or mash, all options will be served.

You can buy tickets at Ticketpro or at any Edcon group.
