Family Members of Nelson Mandela Plan to Celebrate His 95th Birthday

Nelson Mandela's family is planning to celebrate his 95th birthday on July 18 in Pretoria, London and Monaco. The Sunday Times has reported that former South African president's relatives are planning his birthday celebrations in various cities. The celebrations also include several soccer matches involving Manchester City.

A brochure of 25 pages advertised the event, which will be organized by the African Rising Foundation. There would be a gala dinner at the Union Buildings in Pretoria with African leaders, friends of Madiba, pan-African multinationals and institutions, according to News 24 reports.

Mandela was admitted to the hospital last month for a lung condition and was released on 6 April after he sought substantial improvement in his health.

Another birthday event includes a boxing treatment and super-middleweight prospect Edwin Rodriguez is expected to participate in that.

John Carlin wrote a book on Nelson Mandela that was named Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game that Changed a Nation. Penguin Books South Africa made an announcement last week that he will be writing a book on rise and fall of Oscar Pistorius.

After the end of trials, the book is likely to be published. Carlin was brought up in Argentina and in the UK. However, he was based in South Africa as a correspondent for the Independent, a UK newspaper, from 1989 to 1995.
