MANDELA’s 94th

Today Dr Nelson Mandela turns 94 years, six years short of his political home, the African National Congress which this year celebrates its centenary of unbroken revolutionary struggle. Madiba, as Mandela is fondly called, has become larger than life – with his shadow loming larger than his ANC, South Africa, Africa and the world.

No wonder the United Nations has declared his 18 July birth date an International Day to be celebrated and honoured by the whole world. The day marks Nelson Mandela’s contribution to peace through his active involvement in resolving conflicts , promoting human rights, international democracy and reconciliation, and in addressing racial issues.

This year’s theme is : “Take Action; Inspire Change; Make Every Day Mandela Day.”
