News » Dr Mabizela asks: Are we still on track?

The Grahamstown Foundation joins the voices calling for the continuation of the extraordinary legacy bequeathed to us by Former State President Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.

The 1820 Settlers National Monument was rededicated by President Nelson Mandela in a moving ceremony on 16 May 1996.

The imaginative concept behind the Monument is the desire to be mindful about the past, while working actively in the present to shape a just and democratic future. Amid reminders of the past, and through its projects, the Foundation encourages the principles and ideals of the South African constitution.

We embrace and share with you all the challenges put to us by Dr Sizwe Mabizela, Deputy Vice Chancellor of Rhodes University, during the official period of mourning for Nelson Mandela, in which he asks: "Are we still on track" through our lives and our work to foster the ideals demonstrated so eloquently by this great man?
