JOHANNESBURG – The Nelson Mandela Foundation on Tuesday launched an exhibition/ centenary project in the city of Johannesburg to mark Madiba’s 100th birthday next year.
Prof Njabulo Ndebele, the chairperson of the Nelson Mandela Foundation, official unveiled the centenary project yesterday in honour of the late statesman.
The Nelson Mandela foundation was remembering the life of the great statesman who passed away on December 5 in 2013.
The foundation decided to remember him by launching a permanent exhibition in Houghton on his life before, within and after prison.
The exhibition will be coordinated by members of the foundation on a yearly basis on the day that the late statesman was born.
Ndebele said, “We still miss him, and we’re still inspired by him to keep working hard, to keep fighting the good fight and believing in the South African that he dreamed of and sacrificed so much for.”
Ndebele said the exhibition will allow people to have in-depth insight of how great Nelson Mandela was, adding that the foundation will do everything in ensuring that everything that Madiba believed in and fought for is never compromised.
The chief executive of the Nelson Mandela Foundation also urged all South Africans not to normalise the abnormal, adding that Nelson Mandela is a true hero whose life deserve to be celebrated.
