Cuban Council of State Vice President Salvador Valdes will visit the Origins Center on Saturday, on the second day of his visit to South Africa.
Valdes arrived here on Friday leading Cuba’s delegation to the 25th African Union (AU) Summit, whose high-level segment will be held on June 14-15 at the Conference Center in Sandton, Johannesburg.
The Origins Center, in the University of the Witwatrersand, in Johannesburg, holds the history and anthropology of living cultures in this country, internationally recognized as the Rainbow Nation.
According to the Cuban delegation’s schedule, to which Prensa Latina had access, Valdes will meet with Jessie Duarte, general assistant secretary of the African National Congress (ANC), and with Cuban collaborators in South Africa.
Cuban Deputy Foreign Minister Ana Teresita Gonzalez, Meylin Suarez, an official from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Cuban Ambassadors to Ethiopia and South Africa, Juan Manuel Rodriguez and Carlos Fernandez de Cossio, respectively, are also members of the delegation.
After arriving yesterday, the first official activity of the Council of State vice president was to pay tribute to South African communist leader Chris Hani at the memorial built in South Park Cemetery.
