Obama To Deliver Mandela Lecture
Former US President Barack Obama is set to deliver the annual Nelson Mandela lecture in South Africa’s main city, Johannesburg, in about five hours.
The lecture coincides with events to mark 100 years since the birth of South Africa’s first black president, who died in 2013 aged 95.
The speech by Mr Obama, the US’ first black president, would focus on “creating conditions for bridging divides, working across ideological lines, and resisting oppression and inequality”, the foundation said.
It will be live-streaming the eagerly-awaited speech, as it points out on its Facebook account:
