Nelson Mandela to receive birthday hamper?
Published on 19/07/2010

A hamper could be the perfect gift for Nelson Mandela as he celebrates his 92nd birthday.

Mandela spent yesterday (July 18th) with family and friends at his home in Johannesburg, the Independent reports.

Jacob Zuma, South Africa's president, visited Mvezo - the birthplace of Mandela - and helped to paint a school building and plant trees.

Mr Mandela's wife Graca Machel also helped mark the occasion by cultivating a vegetable plot in an orphanage in Soweto.

According to the news provider, a number of leaders from across the world paid tribute to Mr Mandela.

UN chief Ban Ki-Moon said Mr Mandela is a "towering figure" who "embodies the highest values of humanity", and US president Barack Obama commended his "extraordinary vision, leadership and spirit".

Last month, Ray Harryhausen – acclaimed special effects animator - celebrated his 90th birthday and may have received a hamper as one of his presents.
