This memorial sign in honour of Nelson Mandela was unveiled at East London’s Heroes Park on 18 December 2013. It is 4m by 1m in size. Heroes Park coordinator Dr Daya Appavoo said they wanted to honour the world icon, especially since they had memories of meeting the former president at his Qunu home when they went to make imprints of Madiba’s feet in 2002.
Heroes Park was opened on Sunday December 15 2001, coincidently with the same day Mandela was buried at his Qunu home. It was opened to honour all the great men and women and especially Nelson Mandela for his efforts and hard work to free his people.
The sign is printed with “Your footprints have left a golden trail”. He was born 18 July 1918 and died 5 December 2013.
