It only takes 67 minutes of your time

nelson mandelaToday marks the birthday of our father, Tata Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. It is also the first time that we will celebrate his life, without him, since his passing in December last year.

Tata Madiba taught us many invaluable lessons all centred on peace, unity and fairness.The Nelson Mandela International Day was launched in recognition of Nelson Mandela’s birthday following a unanimous decision of the United Nations - General Assembly.

Inspired by a call Tata Madiba made a year earlier, for the next generation to take on the burden of leadership in addressing the world’s social injustices when he said that:

“It is in your hands now”

Today is also more than a celebration of Madiba’s life and legacy.  It is a global movement to honour his life’s work and act to change the world for a better place.

I wish every one of you a happy and blessed Nelson Mandela Day.  Let us honour Tata by doing our best in the service of others. It only takes 67 minutes of time.Let us carry Tata Madiba’s spirit with us every day and serve our passengers with pride.

I leave you with the wise words of Tata: "Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do."

Have a great day,

Franco Pisapia

Education is the most powerful weapon which we can use to change the world.
