Madiba celebrates his 96th birthday today – and it’s also his wedding anniversary to Graca. You can post your good wishes here, or share what you will be doing for your community to honour ‘Mandela Day’
Happy Birthday Tata, we hope you spend the day with loved ones who can give you something to smile about all day long. You deserve it! If you count your age by friends, not years, you will be forever young at heart!!
– from the team at Sowetan LIVE
AND LET’S NOT FORGET – THIS IS A DOUBLE CELEBRATION:
Nelson Mandela married Graca Machel on his 80th birthday – so this is an extra special day for the family.
We hope your shared love makes your life brighter every day, and brings you happiness all year round.
