DUBE, in Soweto, will celebrate its colourful history at a Gala Dinner and Farmers Market – for the first time ever!

Celebrations will be held on Saturday at Wandies Restaurant in Dube, as well as at the George Tabor College, opposite the Dube Bowling Club.
More than 300 local farm producers from across Soweto are expected to attend this first ever farmers market in the legendary township.

The market will incorporate an indaba on food security, hosted by Izindaba Zokudla, a township-wide movement led by a University of Joburg Soweto campus lecturer, Dr Naude Malan.

Organisers have invited most of Dube’s living legends to the gala dinner hosted by Wandies Restaurant, including businessman Dr Richard Maponya; the two last remaining ex-World War II soldiers; former school teacher, principal, school inspector and also lecturer, Dr Richard Gugushe, who will turn 103 this October; the first black sports editor, Leslie Sehume; Sally Motlana, as well as one of the last three remaining ex-Rivonia treason trialists, Andrew Mlangeni.

Early 1950s Drum journalist Dan Chocho (85) will also be there. Tables at the gala dinner are sold at R7 000 per table of four guests.
