Johannesburg - Ahead of former president Nelson Mandela’s 94th birthday next week, City Press visited the Little Ashford Preschool in Johannesburg to find out from the very young what they knew about the very old.

All we can say is that their future history teachers have their work cut out for them.

» Masego Msibi (4)
I know Mandela was in a box. On his birthday, I am going to paint a picture of a president present for him.

» Oliver Cloete (4)
My mummy and daddy know him, and I know he went to jail because he was fighting for my
rights.

» Hlumisa Nompuza (4)
Nelson Mandela is my friend. I saw him on my TV busy talking and I was wearing my nightie.

» Malcom Doke (5)
I have seen him in the news with lots of people around him. I also know he does president things for the World Cup.

» Ben Brews (4)
I have seen Nelson Mandela on my TV fighting for freedom.

» Lesedi Mabalane (4)
I know Mandela is the leader for soccer and then he went to jail. My mummy said I should know him when he was on my TV. I greet Mandela when he comes to my house and he watches TV at my house.

» Ben Potgieter (4)
I have seen Mandela before when he was talking to someone, where someone works. He was talking about something that you don’t drink wine. He went to jail because he was fighting with someone.

» Lesedi Makhele (4)
Nelson Mandela is our president. I have seen statues of him close to my dad’s house. I see lots of things about him on my TV every day and I know he went to jail because he was naughty.
