Celebs Share Their Mandela Day Tales
Many local celebrities took to the streets to celebrate the ideals of the late Nelson Mandela on July 18, 2014. The stars dedicated 67 minutes of their time to doing good for those who are less fortunate during the first birthday since Madiba passed away.
This initiative was inspired by Nelson Mandela in 2008, who called on the next generation of youth to be active citizens in leadership by addressing various world social issues. The following year the United Nations Assembly endorsed the recognition of Mandela’s birthday as an international day.
Thato Tholo asked a few celebrities what Madiba ideals they lived by as well as how they spent their 67 minutes.
