The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) and the Royal House of Mandela sponsored the Second Africa Summit which was organised in Cape Town, South Africa from the 21st to 24th November 2018. The Summit, under the theme: “Peace and Human Development in Africa: Interdependence, Mutual Prosperity and Universal Values” was dedicated to Honouring the Legacy of President Nelson Mandela. The Summit is one of a series of events which have been organised this year to commemorate the Nelson Mandela Centennial Celebration Year (1918-2018).
The Seychelles delegation did not miss the opportunity to visit Robben Island – a unique symbol of “the triumph of the human spirit over adversity, suffering and injustice”. The visit began with a bus tour around the island and then a tour of the prison by Mr Dumisani Mwandla, an ex-political prisoner on Robben Island from 1989 to 1991.
