The Nelson Mandela Foundation has unveiled an exhibition in Johannesburg to mark former President Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday next year.

Tuesday marked four years since Madiba’s passing on December 5, 2013.

Delivering the keynote address, UDM leader Bantu Holomisa said Madiba would have been shocked by the level of corruption that was demolishing the country.

He says: “The travesty of the so-called state capture has hollowed out many of the state institutions. This is an insult to Madiba’s legacy.”

“In the same vain, it is difficult to comprehend how some people stooped so low by stealing funds allocated to giving Madiba a dignified farewell as the Public Protector recently found,” adds Holomisa.
