Thousands rock up for Bieliemielie Festival in Reitz


Now we know why the Bieliemieliefees in Reitz, Free State is known as “die fees met gees” (“the festival with spirit”). There really is a helluva lekke’ vibe. Despite some much-needed rain, thousands are flocking to the town for a four-day-festival with the best in Afrikaans music and entertainment, great food, and a show of agricultural machinery and livestock.

The very first VKB Food For Mzansi panel discussion was a great success too, with former Bok coach Peter de Villiers, farmers Maseli Latuka and Danie Slabbert and Nico Groenewald from Standard Bank talking about the power of agriculture to create social cohesion.
