Dr. Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma - Chairperson of the AUC

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”

Nelson Mandela was a courageous and dignified leader, respected throughout the world. He served as an example to all the values needed to make Africa a great continent. NAYD, Afrika Speaks and its continental and global partners therefore propose that every country in Africa should have a monument to remember him by, to serve as a permanent reminder that great personal sacrifice, love and forgiveness are the values African Youth should aspire to ensure his legacy. We propose the monument to be 95m tall to reflect the number of years he lived and that his famous quotes should be inscribed around the side in a language(s) suitable to the country in which it is erected. We further propose that adjacent to the monument is created a Peace Garden.
