Johannesburg - Dozens of schoolchildren flocked to a Nelson Mandela Children's Fund special fun day in Johannesburg on Friday.

"I love Tata Mandela because he fought for us and our freedom," said Atamelang Primary School pupil Bonolo Precious.

Precious said she and her classmates had written a letter to congratulate Mandela on his birthday.

The event is an annual children's celebration held at the Fund's headquarters in Saxonwold.

Several other schools showed their love for Madiba by creating poems, cards and artwork for him.

The children were also entertained with face painting and cart rides.
