Kids revel in uTata's big occasion
NELSON Mandela's 94th birthday was warmly celebrated by 35 excited children from the Miss Muffet Daycare Centre in Tembisa.
The Nelson Mandela Children's Fund played host as part of Mandela Day celebrations.
The children were overjoyed as they began an eventful morning by dipping their hands in paint using multiple colours as a symbol of unity and peace in a democratic South Africa.
Centre principal Jabulile Buthelezi said: "Mandela inspired me to open the centre because he symbolises love and unity.
"The centre accommodates 35 children and some of them are orphans, which is why we appeal to the public to help us in any way they can to enable us to build bigger premises. Contact us on ndekabuthelezi @yahoo.com," she said.
