SOUTH AFRICA'S FLAG CONTINUES TO FLY HIGH OVERSEAS AND OUR TWO CELERITY STARS ARE DOING SUCH A GOOD JOB IN ENSURING THAT WE ARE REPRESENTED WELL.
As a country, we are feeling proud that they have continued to carry us well and risen the flag of South Africa.
Today, being the 25th of September, the two ladies are amongst the hosts of the Global Citizens concerts.
