City honours local heroes and unveils Madiba statue to mark Mandela Day


.The city is also unveiling a statue of Nelson Mandela at the Nelson Mandela Stadium where it will be showcased to the public and subsequently be moved to different locations in the Metro such as Helenvale, Motherwell and Uitenhage Square.
The recognition of these heroes and heroines today is done to celebrate their selflessness and to honour their work. These are individuals whose efforts are not necessarily trained at gaining personal recognition but are driven by humility and the need to uplift those who are less fortunate.
And as the City that carries the name of one of the world’s most celebrated political icons, we ought to show our gratitude to those who consistently push the boundaries to make this Metro an extraordinary and better place to live in.
The 18th of July is primarily earmarked for people across the globe to take action and effect some change, even if only for 67 minutes, to pay forward Madiba’s legacy.
Organised by Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality (NMBM) in partnership with the Mandela Bay Development Agency (MBDA) and the Mandela Bay Stadium, residents will be mobilised to communicate their aspirations for Nelson Mandela, for the next 67 days, in the context of the values and attributes of the great and late statesman.
People will be encouraged through social and traditional media platforms to have their say in how the city's administration could best position itself to live up these values.
We are a City that carries the hopes and dreams of over 1 million residents.
One City Future.
