The richest speech contest in the country was launched last night in Pietermaritzburg in honour of former president Nelson Mandela.

“The competition is an acknowledgement and reinforcement of Nelson Mandela’s belief that the future lies with our youth and that in educating and training them … we will create a generation of adults who will support and protect our democracy and will be in a position to lead our country into a bright future,” said Mayor Zanele Hlatshwayo at the launch. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
