The Nelson Mandela Foundation will on Monday launch the annual commemoration of the late South African statesman.

The launch at Constitution Hill, will also serve as a count down to Nelson Mandela's centennial birthday on July 18. The former president died in 2013 aged 95.


''The foundation invites all to play a part in building a society of our dreams, inspired by the values of the global icon," the foundation's CEO Sello Hatang said.

The campaign urges global citizens to take action against poverty, inspire change  and "make every day a Mandela Day".


The keynote speaker for the 2018 Nelson Mandela annual lecture will be announced at Monday's event.

The United Nations declared July 18 International Nelson Mandela Day and annually, on this day, people across political divides in South Africa and other parts of the world devote 67 minutes doing charitable work.

The 67 minutes signify the 67 years Madiba dedicated to public service.
