MPLs participated in the provincial legislature’s Nelson Mandela Day campaign in Mdantsane in East London on Friday, 17 July to dedicate 67 minutes of their time in honour of former President Nelson Mandela’s legacy.
The Nelson Mandela Day 67 minutes goodwill activities took place at Dickson Dyani Senior Primary School, the Mdantsane Arts Centre, the Mdantsane Library and the Mthsothso NU1 cemetery. The activities included the painting of classroom ceilings and walls at the school and a reading session with young scholars at the library.
Furniture, computers and 67 books were donated to the library and arts centre. Trees were planted and overgrown bushes in the Mthsothso cemetery were cleared as part of the activities.
