2016 Golden Shield Heritage Awards winner makes it to the 200 young South Africans 2017
Young people are the shapers of our country’s shared destiny. To sustainably preserve and protect our country’s heritage, we need a youth that will take charge of their future and be proud of their country’s rich heritage. Twin Mosia is one of the Mail & Guardian 200 Young South Africans in the Arts & Entertainment category.
The 200 young South Africans are chosen for their feats of brilliance as individuals which is a reminder that the pursuit of a better world is not in vain.
“We congratulate Twin Mosia, the Young Heritage Activist winner of the 2016 Golden Shield Heritage Awards winner and founder of Elandskop Museum,” said Advocate Sonwabile Mancotywa.
These are the kind of young people that South Africa’s heritage landscape needs, in order to preserve and protect its rich heritage through passing on the knowledge about the importance of history, heritage and the natural environment. Elandskop is a museum named after a local hill that will be at an old train station and will entail historical artefact of the town.
Inspired and driven youth is a beacon of hope for every nation. There is so much quest for social cohesion and nation building in South Africa and hope for a nation that is proud of African heritage”, said Adv. Mancotywa.
