July is a time to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s life and legacy. It is a time for global movement in honour of his life’s work and act to change the world for the better. In commemorating the iconic hero everyone is inspired to take responsibility and make the world a better place one small step at a time, just as Tata did. Thobela FM intends to take this call of action and activate through the month of July.
