Ubuntu is a complex word from the Nguni language with several definitions, all of them difficult to translate into English. At the heart of each definition, though, is the connectedness that exists between people.
According to the South African embassy, more than 6,000 South Africans are living in Qatar, many are employed in the education and health systems of Qatar, as well as in senior managerial positions in a wide variety of sectors. Ubuntu bash is celebrated every year to recognise the cultural wealth of the South African nation.
Ubuntu Bash 2019 is loaded with lot of kids’ activities including a kid’s cup cake decorating competition, walking football, music, and a mystery box cooking competition for adults with Celebrity Chef Jenny Morris.
The Ubuntu Bash in Doha will see several stalls selling South African delicacies such as bunny chows (South African style curry served in half a loaf of bread), boerewors rolls (traditional, unmistakable South African sausage), koeksisters (a very traditional baked dessert) and many more.
Of special interest will be the various Zulu and Xhosa dishes that will be served including a firm favourite made from crushed corn and beans.
Registration for the cup cake decorating and the mystery box cooking competitions will be from 14:00 to 15:30 on the day of the event, be sure to register on time to take part in these exciting competitions. The names of 12 children for the cupcake decorating and 6 adults for the mystery box competition will be chosen at 15:30.
