Over the years, many movies have been made about Nelson Mandela, the latest being the film adaptation of his autobiography Long Walk to Freedom. That outing starred British actor Idris Elba, who follows in the steps of several actors who have played Madiba, only one of whom was South African – Lindane Nkosi.

For the fourth year, Trek4Mandela will climb Mount Kilimanjaro, summiting the peak on 18 July, Madiba's birthday. The organisation is raising funds for the health and hygiene of rural and poor schoolgirls.
