Prime Minister Perry Christie joined Alfred Sears Q C, the organizer locally of the Caribbean Music Festival on Thursday 29th October to mark the 30th anniversary of the Nassau Accord. This was an accord which came out of the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Nassau in 1985 which saw the Commonwealth determined to apply maximum pressure to the apartheid South African regime and ensure that Nelson Mandela would be freed. Prime Minister Lynden Pindling was the Chair of the conference. Dame Marguerite Pindling joined the observances in Rawson Square as did the South African High Commissioner to The Bahamas Mathu Theda Joyini and a choir all the way from Soweto.
