Gaborone - Every year on 18 July, the world celebrates the Nelson Mandela International Day in recognition of the former South African President's contribution to the promotion of Peace, Freedom and Social Justice.

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) is proud to join the international community in celebrating the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela, who stands as an enduring symbol of Democracy and liberation in South Africa and world at large.

For the past 10 years, the world has been celebrating and honoring a man who has played a leading role in support of international peace, mediation and conflict resolution. On this special day, SADC wishes to pay homage to Madiba, as he was affectionately called, and recognise his contribution to the well-being of humanity, including the protection of gender equality and human rights.

The life of Nelson Mandela teaches us many lessons. He is one of the greatest sons of the SADC region who lived each day to contribute to the promotion of a better and peaceful world. Each one of us, in the region, should thus be inspired to play their role in the realisation of peace, security and the enhancement of the standard and quality of life for all.

SADC reaffirms its commitment to sustain the legacy of Madiba by working tirelessly towards lasting peace, sustainable development and a dignified life for all SADC citizens. Madiba’s values of advancing regional integration and unity will always be a guidepost for the region to achieve regional stability and social justice and sustainable development.
