One of the staff members who was in attendance said the celebrations have brought a feeling of pride as an African aswell as interacting with top bosses in a different setting.
He said “We don’t normally rub shoulders with top management like we did. This is important and we have learnt things today we wouldn’t have known. So it has been a great celebration.”
