Video: Anyaoku speaks about ‘Madiba’ on Nelson Mandela Day

Nelson Mandela Day is celebrated annually on 18 July. In this short video, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, Secretary-General of the Commonwealth from 1990-2000, talks about his friend ‘Madiba’. Mandela visited the Commonwealth Headquarters at Marlborough House in 1993, prior to South Africa re-joining the organisation in January 1994 and his visit is pictured on the cover of a booklet about the Commonwealth events which have taken place there.
