The official partner for Citi FM’s Robben Island Experience, the South African Airways (SAA), has described the tour as a unique opportunity to tell the African story at a time that the African history is attracting global audience.
The Country Manager of South African Airways, Gloria Wilkinson believes patrons of the Robben Island Experience will be investing in a valuable venture as they will be exposed to the works of one of Africa’s icon, Nelson Mandela.
“People travel far and wide to Robben Island just to listen to the very inspiring stories and the legacy or struggles that Nelson Mandela went through. It is a good education and for anyone to invest in this kind of activity, I think he or she will find value in that kind of investment,” she remarked.
Gloria Wilkinson was also of the view that the legacy of South Africa’s first black President, Nelson Mandela, could best be told with a firsthand experience.
“It is good for Africans especially now that Nelson Mandela is no more if we have to carry out the legacy and history, we need to expose people to Robben Island to get to hear of that story first hand.”
As part of efforts to project the station’s relevance in promoting the tourism industry, both domestically and internationally, Citi FM is organizing a week’s tour which will take participants to five major tourist attractions in Cape Town.
