Durban gets glam ahead of #Indaba2017
The tourism indaba is expected to host over 7,000 delegates from all corners of Africa.
DURBAN - President Jacob Zuma is set to officially open the 2017 Tourism Indaba on Tuesday.
The event is expected to host over 7,000 delegates from all corners of Africa at the Inkosi Albert Luthuli ICC in Durban from Tuesday to Thursday.
Guests who had already arrived in Durban were treated to an intimate unofficial opening and welcome ceremony on Sunday night where they were treated to good food, music and entertainment.
They were greeted by Setswana dancers at the airport and then enjoyed an evening of fashion and cuisine at The Joint Jazz Cafe.
Among the designers to showcase their talent was Wilson Muyeka from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The 42-year-old says his items are inspired by the diversity within the African continent.
"Africa is in my blood, so whatever I do, it must be African. Fashion is what keeps me alive."
