They said it was going to be hot: Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille listened to the weather forecasters when choosing her outfit for the State of the Nation Address today.
De Lille‚ in a loose flowing kaftan – unless the pants suit she has worn in previous years – was accompanied by her husband Edwin.
Both were wearing beaming smiles‚ in line with the bright colours of red and magenta they chose to don.
Earlier this week‚ South African Weather Service (SAWS) forecaster Vanetia Phakula said the temperature in Cape Town would be 29 degrees celsius on Thursday afternoon. “There will be some light wind in the south easterly direction‚ traveling at 28km/h but generally the weather will be favourable‚” Phukula added.
