STATEMENT BY THE CITY’S EXECUTIVE MAYOR, PATRICIA DE LILLE
As the auspicious holy month of Ramadaan comes to an end, the City of Cape Town would like to wish members of the Muslim community a blessed Eid al-Fitr.
As we mark the end of Ramadaan, we have to reflect on the wonderful acts of generosity displayed by our Muslim brothers and sisters.
Throughout the year, and even more so at this time of the year, we witness how the Muslim community displays the values of a caring City through their acts of charity and helping those most vulnerable in society.
I extend our deep appreciation for these efforts and the vital role that residents play in helping us build a caring City.
May your lives be filled with a sense of peace, pride and deep spiritual renewal during this period.
I wish you a wonderful day as you enjoy the festivities with your loved ones.
May the blessings of the Almighty Allah be with you on this special day. Eid Mubarak.
I also send my heartfelt sympathies to the families of the two people who were killed in the senseless attack at a Malmesbury mosque in the early hours of this morning.
