The Foundation has curated a selection of the messages and contributions received from people across the world following Madiba’s passing in a special multimedia exhibition experience titled In Tribute to Nelson Mandela, which will be on display at the Foundation’s Centre of Memory in Houghton, Johannesburg, from 4 December until the end of February 2015.
Minister of Science and Technology, Naledi Pandor, together with Chairman of the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Professor Njabulo Ndebele, Mandela family members and key partners of the Foundation including the SABC, Telkom, AVAAZ and Edcon will officially open the exhibition.
