About
In an extension of our community social cohesion projects, we have partnered with Primrose Rugby Club and the Imam Haron Foundation presents the Imam Haron Commemorative Youth Rugby Festival. This Festival is significant as it marks the 50th commemoration of the death in detention of Imam Abdullah Haron at the hands of the apartheid regime. Imam Haron was not only a political activist who gave his life in advocating social justice but he was also an avid sportsman that played a significant role in non-racial sport.
