JOHANNESBURG - The Nelson Mandela Foundation is urging all South Africans to make every day a Mandela Day. 

The foundation says it’s important that Mandela Day activities continue well beyond 18 July.

The Chief Executive of the foundation, Sello Hatang, said people must try to make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate.

He said the day should help people discover their abilities to help one another.
