The Deputy Minister of Sport Fikile Mbalula, and other officials will dedicate their 67 Minutes for Mandela on Friday July 18 in Cullinan, Refilwe Township at the Chokoe Primary School, Tswolepele Street.
This year’s Nelson Mandela International Day is particularly symbolic for South Africans as it is the first one since the former President Nelson Mandela’s passing. It offers South Africans and the world, an occasion to honour the ethos of the late former President Mandela in the year that also marks South Africa’s 20 Years of Freedom.
The overarching objective of Nelson Mandela International Day is to inspire individuals to take action to help change the world for the better, and in doing so build a global movement for good. Ultimately it seeks to empower communities everywhere to “Take Action; Inspire Change; Make Every Day a Mandela Day.”
