Mandela Day more than ‘signing cheques’

Mandela Day is not about giving financial donations – it is about empathy and showing kindness to humanity, according to Nkosi Mandla Mandela, the grandson of late president Nelson Mandela.

Mandela believes wealthy people can do more for the poor than “simply signing cheques”.

He was speaking at a Mandela Day event at Hemingways Mall on Saturday.
