The South African National Halal Authority (Sanha) will be conducting its annual general meeting, open to the public on Saturday 8th November 2014. Sanha says in line with its philosophy of transparency, the halal body has maintained its open door policy, opening itself up to public scrutiny.
Sanha public relations officer, Ebi Lockhat says the meeting will provide all attendees an open discussion on the organisation’s audited financial statements, the number of halal certifications they have issued and also allow the public to interact and offer their input.
“We have strived to make this meeting as inclusive as possible. That is why we have extended our invitations to the public and other national sister bodies,” Lockhat explained.
“The meeting rotates in many cities where we currently have offices. Two years ago it was in Cape Town. We are now in Johannesburg and will be hosting our meeting in Lenasia.”
The keynote address will be delivered by Maulana Taahir Salloo, an Islamic scholar and imam of Mayfair Jumua masjid. This year, Sanha have also invited Aubrey Parsons for a talk at the AGM, an accomplished and engaging speaker.
“Dr Parsons will present complex scientific treatise on food sciences and discuss the relation of these sciences to the teachings of Islam.”
Lockhat further requested the duahs from the local community to ensure that the halal body remains loyal and humble in offering their services to the Muslim public.
At the AGM, the secretarial report, theological committee report and audited financial statements will be revealed. The AGM starts at 2.30pm at the Nurul Islam auditorium in Lenasia in Gauteng.
