Bill Clinton, former President of the United States of America (USA) visits Nelson Mandela, former President the Union of South Africa (USA) at home on the eve of his 94th birthday.
QUNU, South Africa — Former U.S. President Bill Clinton and his daughter Chelsea are visiting Nelson Mandela in his home village in South Africa on the eve of the anti-apartheid icon’s 94th birthday.
Mandela, increasingly frail, no longer appears in public. Clinton on Tuesday visited his homestead in Qunu, the southeastern village of his birth, and spent more than 90 minutes there.
On Wednesday, South Africa and supporters around the world celebrate Nelson Mandela International Day. Millions dedicate 67 minutes of the day to community work and projects for the needy to mark Mandela’s 67 years in active politics.
Volunteers are building 67 homes for people in shanties and schoolchildren across South Africa will celebrate him by singing “Happy Birthday.” A tattoo parlor is looking to make its permanent mark — by tattooing 67 people with an image of Mandela.
