Nelson Mandela Day

Former President Nelson Mandela turned 93 years old yesterday.  Three years ago it was decided to declare 18 July, his birthday, Nelson Mandela Day and to appeal to people to celebrate the day by giving 67 minutes of their time to do something for the community.  The 67 minutes represents the 67 years of his life fighting for the rights of humanity.  Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism organised a cleanup campaign around the Donkin Reserve and Fort Frederick along the Donkin Heritage Trail with the meeting place being on the grass at the Donkin Reserve close to the Mandela figure at the head of the Voting Line art piece.
