Commemorating the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela was born 100 years ago today on 18 July 1918 in the village of Mvezo in Umtata, then part of South Africa’s Cape Province. So today is a good time to remember this remarkable man and his wonderful achievements.

You can learn a lot more about Mandeal’s life from his excellent biography “Long Walk To Freedom” which I have reviewed here.

Mandela spent 17 years in jail on Robben Island and you can read about my visit to the island here.
