Join the Kovsie chain of goodwill for Mandela Day
2013-07-17

17 July 2013

The University of the Free State (UFS) will join other civil society institutions by linking together in recognition of the legacy of Madiba on Nelson Mandela Day.

A “human chain” of UFS staff and students will be created at the “thinking stone” next to the H vd Merwe Scholtz Hall on the Bloemfontein Campus tomorrow from 11:00. At 11:25 the assembled chain will recite a pledge statement from the university then move to the Red Square where the rest of the 2013 Mandela Day activities will take place.

The NSH patrons, Mrs Grace Jansen and Dr Carin Buys, will release symbolic doves and join the rest of the “chain” in the singing of the national anthem and prayers from the UFS Interreligious Forum and Campus Ministries Forum.
