Mandela's actions should be a guide to us all
Note to editors: These are remarks made by DA Parliamentary Leader, Lindiwe Mazibuko MP, during her visit to the Othandweni Family Centre in Soweto, Gauteng today. The DA leadership team spent time reading to the children of the home, playing games with them and helping the staff to clean the facilities.
Good morning everyone,
Today is a very special day as we celebrate the 95th birthday of our iconic president, Nelson Mandela.
As a younger man Nelson Mandela gave up his career in order to take up the fight against apartheid and racial injustice.
In so doing, he sacrificed his own freedom.
