The Nelson Mandela Foundation will be changing its identity to a centre of memory. A preliminary announcement was made during the Foundation’s launch of Nelson Mandela International Day for 2011.

In 2009 the UN made its universal Madiba declaration. His birth date July 18 is observed with charitable acts in communities across the globe.
South Africans are urged to make every Monday – Mandela Day.

To ensure his legacy endures, the foundation will become The Centre of Memory.And on the eve of Nelson Mandela International Day, his health is good.

At the press briefing, the National Editors Forum said the country should follow Madiba’s example of respecting media freedom. SANEF cited the proposed media tribunal and the Protection of Information Bill as a threat to these constitutional freedoms.
