It was a busy Mandela Day in the Mother City. In the spirit of one of Africa’s greatest heroes, many Capetonians went to work for their 67 minutes today supporting causes close to their hearts and helping those in need.
Cape Town was filled with kindness and love as eager locals rose to the occasion and helped make a difference.
The Western Cape Government joined celebrity chef Jenny Morris to feed those in need.
