Star Studded Launch For The Fikile Mbalula Foundation
Minister of Sports & Recreation, Fikile Mbalula was on FLASH (SABC 3) last Friday where he announced plans for the launch of his foundation, the Fikile Mbalula Foundation. With the foundation, the Minister aims to help disadvantaged young girls and there will be a strong focus on education.
This was not part of the interview but from what I’ve heard, The foundation will be launched in June 2012 and part of the launch includes giving away 10 bursaries worth R100 000 to 10 girls, making that a R1 Million for education.
The minister said that to encourage these girls, he will bring other women who have succeeded against all odds, to come and share their experiences and journeys with the girls. This will be done through workshops to be held in June and there will be local and international stars involved.
He mentioned that Solange Knowles, Zoe Saldana, Kimberly Elise will be here.
About Beyonce, the Minister said that they are in discussions with her about possibly performing at the Sports Awards in September this year. He made it clear that it’s not confirmed and what they are discussing is a full on perfomance, not just 1 or 2 songs but a proper show.
If Beyonce can’t come, we’ll be happy with Chris Brown, Mr Minister
