Imbizo Focus Week 10 - 17 June

The National Imbizo Focus Week will run from 10 to 17 June 2013 and will see Ministers and Deputy Ministers, Premiers, MECs, Mayors and Councillors engage with communities around the struggle against substance abuse. The intention of this week is to scale up the national action plan against substance abuse.

The Imbizo forms part of the interventions aimed at entrenching our democratic, developmental state through participatory democracy.

Let us join hands and demonstrate our commitment to ensuring that substance abuse has no place in our democratic, free society.
