Mandela day

I have just listened to what the president of South Africa had to say when addressing the nation today. Same noise as always, same promises as his predecessors used to do but one thing is for sure we need to give the man and all the elected ministers a chance before we could start criticising. Of all the things he was saying there, I was so delighted when he made mention of the fact that from now onwards our icon's birthday will be honoured in a very special way. I am talking by the one and only Tata Nelson Rholihlahla Mandela the man I so greatly admire. The 18 of July of each and every year will be a Mandela day where everybody will be expected to at least spend 67 minutes of his/her time doing good things for the benefit of the others (Apparently Mandela was a politician for 67 years). Cheers for now!
