Cartoons for Mandela Day

Iziko Slave Lodge has invited visitors to see the ground-breaking exhibition entitled Mandela – Leader; Comrade; Negotiator; Prisoner; and Statesman – for free on Sunday, 18 July, from 10:00 until 17:00, in celebration of International Mandela Day on the icon's birthday. Also exhibited is a collection of Zapiro cartoons about Mandela, entitled 'Drawing on Mandela'.

In 2009 the United Nations declared 18 July as International Mandela Day to honour the man whose vision surpassed the boundaries of time and history. This is the first time a day has been declared by the organisation to honour of a single person. July 18th also happens to be Mandela's 92nd birthday this year, as well as the 12th anniversary of his marriage to Graca Machel.
