It’s Christmas eve and we have a special guest in the loft today, Ndaba Mandela. Born Ndaba Thembekile Zweliyajika Mandela, he is the oldest of the grandchildren of former late President Nelson Mandela.
Ndaba has a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and International Relations, which he received at theUniversity of Pretoria. He followed that up by working as a senior political consultant, focusing on SouthAfrica, for the Embassy of Japan. He is also currently Chairman of Africa Rising Foundation and Vice President of Pan African Youth Council. Ndaba is also an accomplished public speaker much like his grandfather, he has spoken at events such as Printemps Solidare Organisation in Paris, Green EconomySummit in Argentina, and more recently at the Global Citizen event that took place in Johannesburg.
Now he has taken his talents into a new direction by becoming an author and releasing a book called "Going to the Mountain". Which is about the life lessons that his grandfather taught him.
