Nelson Mandela today celebrated his 92nd birthday quietly with his family in Johannesburg.
His birthday was marked by Mandela Day, conceived as an international event devoted to public service, and a celebration of the former president’s life.
Mandela’s wife, Graca Machel, said: “Today is an opportunity for millions of people around the world to look inside themselves and say: ‘I am able to make a difference to my neighbour, to someone underprivileged. I can extend my goodness to other people.’”
