An Interesting Story

The telephone rang this week and a new customer became known to MPR. Sanctuary Mandela (Pty) Limited was the caller needing to hire glassware – MPR responded and the glasses were delivered. These glasses were used at the award ceremony honouring a leading Journalist for work done in perpetuating values that were so near and dear to our very own icon the late Nelson Mandela.

MPR is known for its curiosity learnt that Sanctuary Mandela (Pty) Limited operates from the home of the late Nelson Mandela! MPR urges the reader to Google the Sanctuary and sees what has been done to this home, and what it has now become.

As a result of this phone call a host of memories flooded MPR as we remembered MPR’s association with Madiba, his achievements, his family and his extended family.

MPR supplied the marquee, the size of a rugby field erected at the Presidency for his inauguration. Under this marquee, South Africa saw the largest gathering of Heads of State the world had ever seen. MPR supplied the marquee and everything else associated with such a function.

Long Walk to Freedom’s book launch followed. Again MPR was involved. This time at a house in Sandhurst which is now the Saxon Hotel.

A family wedding of a beloved daughter followed and lastly a family wedding in Mozambique.

Life is strange and those met along the way remain indelibly marked – threads such as these last a lifetime.

MPR thanks Sanctuary Mandela for allowing the memories from the past to remind us of our colourful and varied journey. The ride is worth it!
