Madiba would have turned 100 years old today (18 July) had he lived until this very moment. Government officials and different people from various sectors of life in Mzansi and from other countries around the world have been involved in different projects and programmes in honour of the late icon. 

Birthday wishes for the late Tata Mandela have been pouring in on various social media platforms from all corners of the globe.

Mandela had been the President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He passed away on 5 December 2013 at the age of 95.   

He was laid to rest at the Mandela graveyard in Qunu in the Eastern Cape. As it has been the norm over recent years, South Africans have been encouraged to do a good deed for at least 67 minutes on Mandela’s birthday or to contribute financially to a good cause in honour of the former President, who is widely known for having served 27 years in prison for political reasons.

Former President of the United States Barack Obama and renowned African scholar Professor Patrick Lumumba are some of the well-known dignitaries who have already delivered keynote speeches in commemoration of Mandela’s centenary birthday celebrations.

For their part, Pirates have sent a message to commemorate the birthday of the late first democratically elected President of Mzansi.

“Celebrating what would have been the greatest 100 years ever lived. Honour the legacy Buccaneers, make Mandela Day count (Edited),” Bucs tweeted.

From all of us at Soccer Laduma, we honour you, Tata.
