This year we will be remembering the 6th year since Madiba passed away. It has since become a South African tradition that thousands of South Africans including athletes and families come together to commemorate this historic day with a half marathon and a fun family walk.
Over the last two decades, the ideals of a post-Apartheid South African ‘mythology’ have continued to unravel in different ways. Commentators have noted that some of the ideals of the post-1994 project were misguided. For example, a focus on ‘reconciliation’ supposes a time when there was ‘conciliation’ as the nature of violent dispossession over centuries counters this, and the idea of a ‘rainbow nation’ has been linked to forms of erasure of both identity and justice.
The Nelson Mandela Foundation pays tribute to three of its staff, all of whom have been with it for 20 years.
