President Cyril Ramaphosa has dedicated time on Mandela Day to children. He paid a visit to the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital in Cape Town on Thursday.
He did a radio interview at the Red Cross Children’s Hospital radio station that is staffed by children.
”It was important that we came here to lift the spirits of the young people,” he says.
Embracing the young crow, Ramaphosa has praised the children for their positive outlook on life.
He explains why he decided to dedicate his time on Mandela Day to them and the hospital.
”It was important to come here and to show them and to demonstrate to them that we care about their condition, but also to do what Nelson Mandela would have done. This is what Nelson Mandela was about – love for young people; love for children and in many ways, maybe, I walk in Nelson Mandela’s footsteps by coming here to the Children’s hospital.”
Ramaphosa has also praised the children for their positive outlook on life.
A few months ago I received an invitation from Rx Radio, the Red Cross Children’s Hospital Radio to join them as a guest for a show. There can be no better day to honour their invitation than to spend my 67 minutes of #MandelaDay2019 being interviewed by these bright young minds. pic.twitter.com/ENsc2jDAuy
