The honorary doctorate of Nelson Mandela

29 May 2018

2018 will mark the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela (1918-2013), former President of South Africa. Mandela received an honorary doctorate from Leiden University in 1999. The then Rector Magnificus Willem Wagenaar honoured Mandela as ‘a true defender of freedom’. We celebrate the legacy of Nelson Mandela by organising a lecture on 1 June 2018. More information here.

  1. SOUTH AFRICA: Pretoria is to honour the centenary of the birth of anti-apartheid liberation leader Nelson Mandela in a new series of coin and bank notes.

    Images of the former president will appear on the five-rand coin and the R10, R20, R50, R100 and R200 banknotes for a limited period.

    The South African Reserve Bank made the announcement yesterday to “avoid confusion and unnecessary speculation.”
