GEORGE NEWS - The Nelson Mandela University George Campus is having an open dialogue on the history or historic context of the Southern Cape Region.
It takes place next week Wednesday at 17:00 at the Lecture Theatre on campus. The discussion will be led by an excellent panel of historians, such as Professor Denver Webb, an historian and heritage practitioner at the university.

Sydney Opperman, former educator, politician, pastoral minister and spiritual teacher, will share his view on the key role every population group must play.
He spent six years working as a member of the Western Cape Geographical Names Council. Ronny Nyuka, a history and political sciences graduate, is another member of the panel.
