Africa Day 2020

Event Cancelled

The African Community Council of Wellington (ACCW) has decided to cancel this year’s Africa Day celebrations to Saturday 9th May 2020.

This is as a result of the government’s directive on mass gathering following the recent outbreak of the Covid-19 virus in New Zealand.
