Four years ago, former South African President Nelson Mandela passed away at his house in Houghton. The anniversary comes at a critical time in South African politics, as the ANC decides on its future leaders.
CEO of the Nelson Mandela Foundation Sello Hatang says that memory work is a focal point for them.
Recently we published a book that he started writing which he never managed to finish.— Sello Hatang, CEO of the Nelson Mandela Foundation
We believe in continuing with memory work says Hatang. He adds that the memory of Madiba should be preserved and grow away from a legacy of corruption, racism and poverty.
I never like speaking for Madiba. Madiba would have been in a better place to speak for himself.— Sello Hatang, CEO of the Nelson Mandela Foundation
But with that being said, says Hatang, we need to work hard to root out the corruption we have with our country.
