STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S EXECUTIVE MAYOR, PATRICIA DE LILLE
As our Muslim community prepares for the month of Ramadaan, I extend my best wishes and blessings to you during this period of high-intensity spiritual devotion.
As you observe this period of fasting, reflection, sacrifice, worship and giving, I wish you strength and fulfilment.
We value the important role that the Muslim community plays in our city, where your generosity and compassion for others makes a great impact in our work of building a caring city. I am truly grateful for all the efforts of the Muslim community and for their kindness in our quest to build this caring city.
By being united through our diverse cultures, religions and beliefs and remembering the values of humanity, we are able to make a difference in the lives of our most vulnerable residents and give them hope for a brighter future. Together, our efforts help to make this great city even greater.
On behalf of the City of Cape Town, I wish you a blessed Ramadaan.
Ramadaan Mubarak – Ramadaan Kareem.
