the former presidentˇ¦s 100th birthday, we remember his work through the
theme: ˇ§Be The Legacyˇ¨.

commemorates the historic and heroic 1956 Womenˇ¦s March under the theme:
ˇ§100 Years of Albertina Sisulu, Woman of Fortitude: Women United in Moving

Meaning 2018, we celebrate the two iconic man and woman who in
their selfless lives spent in fighting for the freedom, democracy, justice
and equality of the entire human race in South Africa, for creation of a
non-racist, non-sexist democratic nation, united in its diversity.
They fought for the creation of a great nation which was hailed by one of
its iconic Nobel Peace Laureates, Archbishop Desmond Mpilo Tutu, as the
Rainbow of God.
As we know that rainbow symbolises peace and reconciliation. They spent
their selfless lives for common good of humanity. They led the process of
building a united and democratic South Africa which was finally ˇ§able to
take its rightful place as sovereign state in the family of nationsˇ¨ as
stated in the preamble of our glorious constitution. For our today, they
gave their yesterday. They left us with a clear legacy to be proud of. A
clear legacy to proud members of the human race who most of lived during
their life time and Madiba even walked in this land,Taiwan.
So,letˇ¦s proudly ˇ§ Be The Lagacyˇ¨ and embrace his words of
