    Momentum is building up toward celebrations of Mandela Day tomorrow in South Africa and around the world. Parliament will open its doors to people from various organisations around the Western Cape today to commemorate Madiba's birthday. Many South Africans are deciding how they'll render 67 minutes of service to the needy tomorrow.

    In North West province, doctors and MECs have already gone to an old age centre in Mafikeng to do their 67 minutes. However, people with disabilities, homeless children and young people from identified drug and alcohol rehabilitation centres will visit Parliament to interact with senior officials and tour the premises. Officials will donate stationery, sports kits, books, toys, clothes and food to all invited organisations.

    Meanwhile, Mandela Day is firmly on the agenda in New York after a week of events and activities that included a gala dinner hosted by former US President Bill Clinton and Madiba's wife, Graca Machel. Thousands will gather for a concert of grand proportions at the Radio City Music Hall in the city tomorrow for the annual 46664 concert that will launch the new initiative. Mandela Day is an initiative of the Nelson Mandela Foundation and 46664.

    Mandela is surely one of Africa's greats. There are very few people who would have been able to go through what he went through. There are very few of us who would go through what he did for the better good of mankind. Mungu azidi kumjalia.

    Miaka ya hivi karibuni wakati London ilikua inajiandaa kuzindua sanamu la Mandela muandishi mmoja wa BBC alimuita Mzee Mandela "The unofficial president of the world" na mzungu mpaka kumpa sifa hizo mtu mweusi ujue huyo mtu ni one of a kind.

    Mandela kawazidi wote hao kwa heshima. Sema tu the above mentioned ni wazungu na vitabu vingi vya historia vinaandikwa na wazungu. Angalia Nyerere aliyo yafanya but you don't hear a lot about him or read about him kwenye vitabu. If history was written by Africans then people like Mandela and Nyerere would have had more respect & honor.
