These included assisting the elderly in nursing homes, aiding the disabled, planting trees, donating food and clothing, and participating in river clean-up initiatives, among other endeavors.

The significance of the 67 minutes symbolizes the number of years that Mandela dedicated to the fight for human rights and the eradication of apartheid.

Ramaphosa’s call for peace comes amidst the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, which has lasted for more than a year and has resulted in the loss of numerous lives on both sides.

Last month, Ramaphosa, alongside leaders from Zambia, Congo Brazzaville, Egypt, Senegal, Uganda, and the Comoros, embarked on a peace mission to the war-torn nations.

The African heads of state engaged in a constructive dialogue with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky, aiming to initiate peaceful negotiations.

The peace talks have been widely regarded as successful, as both parties actively participated.

In his weekly newsletter, President Ramaphosa emphasized the importance of learning from Mandela’s legacy and becoming advocates for peace.

He stated thus, “Nelson Mandela stood for the ideals of striving for peace worldwide, ending conflicts, and fostering true international unity among humanity. These principles were significant when he was a prominent statesman, and they hold even more relevance in our present time, with various regions in our continent and the world engulfed in turmoil.”

Ramaphosa further highlighted South Africa’s commitment to achieving a better world through the promotion of peace.
