1999 Sydney Peace Prize recipient Archbishop Desmond Tutu has taken on a new appointment – “Patron of National Braai Day” for South Africa. The term braai is Afrikaan for barbecue.

“There are so many things that are pulling us apart, this has a wonderful potential to bring us all together,” BBC reported Tutu as saying. “We have 11 different official languages but only one word for the wonderful institution of braai: in Xhosa, English, Afrikaans, whatever.”

The National Braai Day will take place on 24 September.
