    Nelson Mandela’s legacy lives on five years after his death. The global icon is celebrated for having led South Africa in the quest to overcome the oppressive apartheid regime.
    In 1994, the fight against white-minority rule was won as South Arica gained independence and democracy. Mandela became its first black president.
    When Nelson Mandela passed on in 2013, the world all over eulogised him as a selfless leader who stood in the face of great injustices for the freedom, peace and unity of his people.

    His passion and commitment to cause continues to touch the hearts of many globally. Songs, books, art exhibitions and even charity causes have been started to keep the memories of the great leader alive.
    Every year on July 18, the world joins South Africa in marking the late Nelson Mandela’s birthday. This year, South Africa will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s birthday.
