Sir Richard Branson is in Cape Town.

We caught up with the billionaire business magnate, investor and philanthropist on Mandela Day to chat about #WalkTogether, the legacy of Nelson Mandela and the 10th anniversary of the inception of The Elders – a group of ten, independent global leaders who work together for peace and human rights. The body was founded by Nelson Mandela in 2007.

To commemorate Mandela Day and the late leader’s vision for a better planet, today saw a peaceful gathering occur for #WalkTogether and we were fortunate enough to speak to Sir Richard Branson, who attended the event with Gra├ža Machel, Nelson Mandela’s widow.
