Inspired by the South Africa that Madiba envisioned, Leon Mdiya and Anthony Prangley have committed to take Madiba's legacy forward by urging people to wear takkies on Friday the 13th of December.

Madiba’s long walk to freedom has come to an end. But our long walk to freedom continues. Implementing his legacy and inspired by the South Africa that Madiba envisioned, Johannesburg residents, Leon Mdiya and Anthony Prangley have committed to take Nelson Mandela's legacy forward by initiating public participation on 13 December. Walk to Freedom Their idea is to get people to wear takkies or walking shoes. This is aimed at symbolising personal commitments to step forward to continue Madiba’s long walk to freedom.

'All that is needed it to lace up your takkies and join in.'

“The idea emerged from a conversation among a few younger South Africans about our own responsibility at this time,” Prangley says. “We want to show we are willing to step up. All that is needed it to lace up your takkies and join in”.

Although we can never fill Nelson Mandela’s shoes we can put on our own this Friday to honour his legacy by continuing our long walk to freedom.
