REMEMBER 11 FEBRUARY – NELSON MANDELA & THE ROAD TO DEMOCRACY

February 05, 2014

The 11th of February will always be a special day for the democratic South Africa and specifically the heritage jewel of a nation, Nelson Mandela Museum. This day marks the release of Nelson Mandela from imprisonment, and, 10 years later Nelson Mandela and the Department Of Arts & Culture founded the Nelson Mandela Museum on the same date 11 February 2000.

On Tuesday 11 February, the Nelson Mandela Museum will have a Freedom Walk from Nelson Mandela’s replica house of Victor Verster Prison in Qunu, to the Nelson Mandela Youth and Heritage Centre, which is a second component of Nelson Mandela Museum and also located in Qunu. The walk will start at 07h30.

On the same day 11 February, the Daily Dispatch will be handing over to Nelson Mandela Museum and the Nelson Mandela Family Posters that were placed on strategic areas for the public to write messages of condolences during the mourning period. The Nelson Mandela Museum has further dedicated the month of February to a series that celebrate the life of Nelson Mandela.

The occasion will be embraced by speakers such as Mrs Laura Mphahlwa, Mr Vuyani Booi from the University Of Fort Hare etc, who will be sharing untold stories to a group of young people selected from Schools and Universities around the Province.

Bayanda Nyengule, C.E.O of the Nelson Mandela Museum said; “It is our mandate as custodians of Nelson Mandela’s legacy to preserve his legacy and tell his story starting from his humble beginnings in Mvezo, Qunu and Mqhekezweni in a way that will inspire nations around the world.”

It is of utmost importance for the Nelson Mandela Museum to steer the way forward sharing Nelson Mandela’s story with the learners and the youth through various programmes and activities that entrench his values.  For the young to identify and commit to Madiba’s sayings and values, the story of his humble beginnings as well as untold stories that define Madiba character must come to the fore. The youth will then begin to understand the sacrifices made by Nelson Mandela.
