A R20 million ultra-modern, multi-function Exhibition Center was opened in the recent week in the Nelson Mandela Capture Site Precinct near Howick, KwaZulu-Natal.
As documented by the South African State broadcaster, SABC News, this was in honor of the late former President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela and the opening coincided with Mandela’s 30th anniversary of his release from prison, according to the Center’s curator Christopher Till.
“The idea of the multi-purpose exhibition Center is to create an interactive experience of South Africa‘s rich history,” added Till.
The highlight of the Center is a 360-degree film experience, which details the arrest of Nelson Mandela by the Apartheid police on 05 August 1962 to his time on Robben Island and the liberation of South Africa,.
The exhibition center was officially opened by the Minister of Tourism in South Africa, Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane, KwaZulu-Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala and the KwaZulu-Natal MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Sipho Hlomuka.
