The Moses Kotane Institute was exhibiting at Borough Sports Ground (Cator Manor) on the 13 of February 2020, in support of the Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs (EDTEA) climate change Awareness Campaign. Among speakers were Mr Mkhushulwa Msimang – South African Weather Service Scientist commonly known in SABC 1 news as a weather service presenter. Mr Msimang spoke on the importance of giving weather forecast that gives more than temperature information but look at dangerous conditions such as tornadoes, heavy rains and the likes. He also gave precautions about bad weather conditions and further cautioned community members on things that they should avoid doing, such as crossing a river when its overflowing, touching walls while there is lightning because walls have wires.
