An online diary of Nelson Mandela’s presidency to follow his day to day activities in office and after office of the presidency.
The widget, which is the result of collaboration by SABC Digital News and the Nelson Mandela Foundation, is essentially a display of the life and times of Mandela each day, says SABC Digital News, developer, Siyabonga Africa.
Africa says the Foundation had in its possession, diaries that detailed Mandela's daily appointments while still a Statesman and afterwards.
It was decided to digitise the diaries so that people would know what Madiba was doing on a particular day.
Africa explains, "Nelson Mandela had a series of dairies which detailed appointments and events that he attended whiles he was a statesman and even after wards. The goal was to especially take those diaries and convert them into a digital format so that people can see what he was doing on any particular day of the year. We decided to create a widget that would showcase on every day of the year what Nelson Mandela was doing."
Africa says the widget is a simple way of showing just how important, highly regarded and celebrated Mandela was all over the world.
