Africa IP community pays tribute to Madiba

Thank you very much to those who wrote in with tributes and content following this post. Unfortunately, space on blog posts does not permit us to upload all of the content you sent in so we have chosen a pic per tribute. Hope that's ok. We also have a volunteer post on how IP can be used to protect his legacy, coming up next.

In alphabetical order then:

You are still the same great person you have always been, selfless and bold. Happy Birthday Nelson!” ( ACC - The Anti-Counterfeiting Collaboration, Nigeria.)

A&A Choir
"Adams & Adams celebrated Mandela day with  tea and cake and an address from the Chairman Dario Tanziani and then we listened to the staff choir singing. After that a group of 48 volunteers are going to Vukuzenzele Primary School to paint and repair their bathrooms. The staff are overjoyed  for the opportunity to recognise a living legend who sets an example for the entire African continent.

Viva Mandela!"

"Happy Birthday Nelson from Coulson Harney, Kenya, you are a great inspiration on determination and self belief "

Appreciative smiles for DMK
"DM Kisch was involved in an amazing upliftment program which included painting and fixing classrooms in the hamlet of Rhodes in the Eastern Cape (not to be confused with the academic establishment in Grahamstown). Notwithstanding the freezing conditions, DM Kisch gave back to the community in true MADIBA style!!

Happy Birthday Nelson!"




Spoor & Fisher wrote in to say:  "Dear Tata, thank you for being such an inspiration to us all. Happy Birthday Madiba! From the partners and staff at Spoor & Fisher"

"Congratulations on reaching 94! We thank and admire you Madiba!"  - Werksmans IP
