President Zuma wishes Nelson Mandela a Happy Birthday


President Jacob Zuma paid his respects to Former President Nelson Mandela at his home in Qunu on 18 July, to wish him well on his birthday.

President Zuma presented Madiba with an architect’s impression of the Nelson Mandela Legacy Bridge that will be constructed across the Mbashe Rivers between Ndondolo Village in the Mbashe Local Municipality and the Mvezo Village in the King Sabata Dalindyebo Local Municipality.
The Department of Rural Development and Land Reform will construct the bridge and road, which will link Mvezo village to the N2, and reduce the travel distance to Idutywa by nearly 50km. The construction of the bridge will also reduce the travel time between Mvezo and the N2 by approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.
The bridge, spanning 180 meters and the associated access road, of approximately 10 kilometers, will also provide improved access to approximately 20 000 people living in 21 villages, in the respective local municipality areas.
The bridge will improve the lives of people living in and around Madiba’s village and is one of the key contributions to keeping the Mandela legacy of a better life for all alive.
The Presidency, South Africa
