The Indonesian Consul General in Cape Town, Ms Sugie Harijadi, is returning to Indonesia after the completion of her tour of duty and on 18 June 2014 came to Mossel Bay to bid farewell to the Municipality.
With her in the photograph are the Executive Mayor, Alderlady Marie Ferreira (left) and the Municipal Manager, Dr Michele Gratz (right). Consul General Harijadi maintained good relationships with Mossel Bay and was responsible for the Indonesian participation in the Dias Festival, at which the people of Mossel Bay were exposed to Indonesian culture, over the past three years.
The colourful Indonesian folk dances at the 2014 Dias Festival in particular had people gasping for their breath. She will be leaving South Africa in July 2014 after a tour of duty of just more than four years.
