In keeping with Parliament’s motto of being ‘An activist and responsive People’s Parliament that improves the quality of life of South Africans and ensures enduring equality in our society’ Mandela Month presents an opportunity for Parliament to illustrate its continuous commitment to serve humanity.
Tata Mandela’s birthday, 18 July, was declared the Nelson Mandela International Day, commonly known as Mandela Day, following a unanimous resolution by the United Nations General Assembly in 2009. However, in South Africa the month of July is set aside for everyone to honour his life by taking actions to make the world a better place.
To commemorate this month in a manner that takes the legacy of the selfless leader of the people forward, Parliament has lined up a host of engagements aimed at touching the lives of ordinary South Africans in general and the historically marginalised in particular. These include, delivering books to a library, donating of blankets and food parcels to senior citizens, putting up two soup kitchens, a squash coaching clinic, plus visits to three safe homes - for young women in conflict with the law, survivors of abuse and a shelter for destitute mothers and their children.
This year’s Mandela Month commemorations will take place against the backdrop of Parliament celebrating “20 Years of the Constitution and the Establishment of the NCOP.” Tata Madiba’s legacy is inseparable from the drafting of our Constitution which gave birth to the NCOP. Therefore, it is fitting to honour his work as we commemorate these two landmark occasions.
