Media Advisory for Mandela Day

Jul 17, 2014

Limpopo Tourism Agency (LTA) and Meropa Casino and Entertainment World will partner for Nelson Mandela Day  scheduled to take place as follows:

Date: 18/07/2014 (Friday)
Venue: Reakgona Adult Centre  next to Polokwane Place of Safety
Time: 09:00

Your media House is thus cordially invited to be part of these activities.

The two institutions have decided partner in the cleaning of the yard and the surrounding and clearing of the land where Meropa Casino will later in the year donate an under-cover vegetable garden with a tunnel structure. Meropa Casino has already invested in the form of a building structure and fence as well as other developments around the centre.

Reakgona Adult Centre was established in 2010 after the founders realized the need for such a centre adult people who are intellectually challenged have nowhere to go after completing their schooling period.

In 2010, 18 July was declared by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) as Nelson Mandela International Day. This day also coincides with the icon’s birthday. The celebration of this international day recognizes and gives credence to the former President’s commitment to human rights, conflict resolution and reconciliation. This will be the first year when this day is celebrated without him since his departure from this world last year, 5 December 2013.
