"With your wit and wisdom, you have it all!" – South African Ambassador Hon. Ebrahim Rasool

Planet Washington’s Ken Rynne was invited to speak with students in Cape Town after a very exciting dialogue with South African university students in Washington, DC for the summer.  The exchange took place at the South African Ambassador Hon. Ebrahim Rasool’s residence as part of a Youth Day June 16 event.  Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Mr Marius Fransman gave the keynote address and students from SA and US addressed issues of economic freedom and skills development.  Ken Rynne participated in a young professionals panel discussion and vowed to speak at any panel that considered him ‘young.’  Ambassador Rasool expressed appreciation for Ken’s historical perspective and wit.  The evening concluded with an extraordinary braai (BBQ).  Details on Mr. Rynne’s itinerary will be posted as they become available.
