South Africa is home the some of the world’s oldest hominid fossils and the region has long been considered the cradle of humankind. Cape Town itself is the oldest urban settlement in South Africa, dating to 1488 Portuguese exploration and subsequent settlement.
The Cape of Good Hope has been a beacon for enterprise since the Dutch East India Company’s use of the natural harbour as a resupply port in the late 1600s. Now it is a new beacon of the difficult but not military, transition to justice. A place of one of the world’s few correct and accountable changes peace, thanks to vision, strength and values.
