To honour Nelson Mandela’s memory and commemorating his centenary year, the Nelson Mandela Foundation is holding its final event to honour South Africa’s first democratically elected president.

The event, titled Why We Remember, will take place on 6 December at Unisa’s Ormonde Conference Centre, one day after the fifth anniversary of Mandela’s passing.

“Award-winning Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie will deliver the keynote speech and will talk about how history has shaped and reshaped our understanding of how societies developed and how these societies collectively imagine the future,” said Sello Hatang, CEO of the Nelson Mandela Foundation.

The Foundation believes that although South Africa is beleaguered as a nation, “we can build on this political moment and use both the pressure that is being exerted on the new administration as well as the upcoming elections to begin our collective envisioning of the future.”

You could win one of 10 tickets to see Ngozi Adichie deliver her keynote address at the event. All you need to do is answer one simple question.
