On July 18th, we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of our great icon and hero Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. This event will be celebrated not only in South Africa, but all around the world. Mandela Rhodes Place, is itself, an iconic building, a major city regeneration project, which proudly bears the name and Ubuntu spirit of our former great leader and first President of the Republic of South Africa. The atrium and lobby of the complex is a permanent tribute and shrine to Madiba which is visited by tens of thousands of people every year.
To mark the year and day, we are putting on a special program at Mandela Rhodes Place in his honor. Come join the celebrations, see the story book of his life and tributes adorning the atrium, the famous wire statue, the ‘hand’ painted portrait and other Madiba reflections.
