Johannesburg – Former president Nelson Mandela remained a symbol of hope to South Africa as it celebrated his birthday on Friday, President Jacob Zuma said.

“As we are here now, South Africans across the lengths and breadths of our country are dedicating at least 67 minutes of their time to engage in a major cleaning up exercise,” Zuma said in Mvezo, Eastern Cape, according to a copy of his speech.

Zuma earlier this week called on South Africans to clean up their cities, towns, villages, and schools to make the South Africa for which Mandela made sacrifices, clean and habitable for all.
