Nelson Mandela Day Flash Mob

VIDEO: Nelson Mandela Day flash mob rocks the mall

AT 11.30am on a Saturday morning at the Greenacres Shopping Centre in Port Elizabeth, seemingly regular shoppers and personnel broke into song. The international award-winning Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University choir rocked the house with an impromptu rendition of the South African national anthem and some popular songs.

The Nelson Mandela Day flash mob was part of an awareness campaign to get students to apply to study at NMMU – one of South Africa’s leading tertiary education institutions. It was also aimed to coincide with Nelson Mandela Day, whereby South African citizens are encouraged to give up 67 minutes of their time to do some good in the world in recognition of the 67 years that Madiba dedicated towards making our country great.

It would have been so great to have been at Greenacres on that eventful day. Was anyone there?
