Mandela endorses granddaughter to take over his legacy of uplifting impoverished rural communities

Former President, Nelson Mandela, has endorsed that his granddaughter, Ndileka Mandela, take over his legacy of uplifting impoverished rural communities.

Ndileka says the Nelson Mandela Foundation - which is responsible for building clinics and schools in rural areas before Madiba retired - has since stopped doing the work.

She says the foundation, which has a new strategy - refocusing its energy towards the centre of memory (digital archives), has collaborated with Google.

However, she maintains that, "There are business people who are still willing to continue where my granddad left, helping to rebuild his old school."
