On Friday 19 July 2013, the Ohlange Institute will be hosting the famous Yaya Toure and Samir Nasri, from the Manchester City Football Team.
They will be paying Tribute to Madiba, together with the international media entourage as part of the Nelson Mandela Birthday Celebration that is commemorated globally. Mandela cast his first ballot at the Institute during the country's first democratic elections in 1994.
Due to the importance of the voting site as marking the start of democracy in South Africa, the players will leave their legacy behind by planting a tree in honor of this great leader and autograph the Mandela Tribute Wall that was launched at the pre-birthday celebration.
The players will conduct a tour at Ohlange Institute and interaction with the Soccer team from the Ohlange High School will be the highlight of the day as they handover the Manchester City Jersey autographed by all the players to the school.
Woza eNanda! Please join this celebratory moment and meet the players.
