Nelson Mandela Museum to Be Upgraded

A steering committee has been established to effect a turnaround at Nelson Mandela Museum in Qunu in the Eastern Cape.

In the past, locals have complained about ineffectiveness and failure by the museum to improve the socio-economic standing of the area.

The museum was meant to offer youth programmes, accommodation and economic spin offs to the community of Qunu.

The embattled museum has been officially handed over to Public Works and is set to receive a much-needed upgrade worth over R35 million.

The museum has been standing idle since 2014 pending renovations. It was becoming a white elephant, a far cry from what Nelson Mandela espoused.
