In honour of late former statesman Nelson Mandela’s commemoration, the Nelson Mandela foundation is unveiling an exhibition to celebrate his legacy. His death four years ago brought the world to a standstill. The 95 year old died at his Houghton home on 5 December 2013. That day the world watched with heavy hearts as Madiba’s death was announced. For a week his passing made international headlines.

Despite him being away from the public eye for years before his passing, Tata was still the people’s president.

It is four years after his death and his legacy continues to be celebrated.

The Nelson Mandela Foundation will mark the day by unveiling an exhibition called “Unthreading Mandela”. Guest speakers at the event include UDM leader Bantu Holomisa and Jeff Radebe.

Madiba died after a long battle with a recurring lung infection.
