The Trek4Mandela team has landed safe at the OR Tambo International Airport after a success summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. The group of 17 climbers which includes the former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela, made the summit as part of the Trek4Mandela initiative.
The group summited Africa’s highest peak on Friday, which was National Women’s Day. The Nelson Mandela Foundation Chief Executive Officer Sello Hatang says this was for a good cause.
“It was tough but it was worth it, every moment in that mountain was special and we felt each other’s warm heart and how we were trying our best to build this country we want , that cares about the vulnerable, that cares about those who need our help and we are hoping the whole of RSA will join us as we say to Thuli Madonsela , to Samba, we are grateful for their leadership because we are all safe and we are back home.”

Looking like kids after receiving Christmas gifts as we exit the gate after summiting Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. Thanks for your prayers. God is good all the time #Climb4Dignity #Climb4SocialJustice pic.twitter.com/kXwMtt9cne
