The Democratic Alliance is celebrating Mandela Day by participating in a number of activities around the province tomorrow (subs: Wednesday, 18 July) varying from cleanup campaigns in municipal wards in the Eastern Cape’s two Metros to running soup kitchens and filling potholes in Nahoon.
It is important that participation in this day is as wide-spread as possible as it helps to not only build a better society but to engender a spirit of national reconciliation in our country.
It is important to remember that this day is celebrated not only in South Africa, but around the world. Nelson Mandela is not only our Tata – the father of the nation – but also a global figure. As we participate in the day, let us remember the core values that Nelson Mandela stands for, such as a compassion for others, accountability and service before self.
