Brand South Africa lights up Constitution Hill In honour of former President Nelson Mandela

Johannesburg, 11 December 2013 – Brand South Africa lit up the sky above Constitution Hill on Wednesday night, in honour of former President Nelson Mandela.

This historical landmark will be lit up with the South African flag colours in remembrance of our dear Tata Madiba every evening between 18h00 and 02h00 until Sunday, the day of Mandela’s funeral.

This will form part of national and international efforts to celebrate the life of the man who confirmed to our people, and the world that South Africa can inspire new ways of doing things.
