Nelson Mandela statue for Union Buildings

A statue of former president Nelson Mandela will be erected at the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

This was part of a celebration for the building’s 100 years of existence, said Arts and Culture Minister Paul Mashatile, the Saturday Star reported.

“Work is at an advanced stage to mount a statue of Tata Madiba at the Union Buildings as part of its centenary celebrations,” he was quoted as saying.

City of Tshwane spokesman Blessing Manale welcomed the statue and the centenary celebrations.

Mandela was discharged from the Medi-Clinic Heart Hospital in Pretoria on Sunday to recuperate at home following a lengthy stay for a recurring lung infection on June 8.

His home has been reconfigured to ensure he receives the correct care, and some staff who had been at the hospital are also caring for him at home.

His condition was last described by the presidency as critical and stable, but at times unstable.
