Dr. Luthuli kicks-starts the Mandela Month with an event at the Chief Albert Luthuli Primary School celebrating the impact and legacy of Chief Albert Luthuli with Former President Nelson Mandela.

She told Stephen Grootes, standing in for Xolani Gwala, that she still very optimistic about the future regardless of some mistakes by the country's leadership.

We are a developmental state, people should be able to learn as we go along that there will be changing circumstances all the time, and they should be properly equipped to deal with those changing circumstances.

Dr. Albertina Luthuli, daughter of former ANC president Albert Luthuli

It’s like raising a child. What needs to happen is that people should learn even from mistakes.

Dr. Albertina Luthuli, daughter of former ANC president Albert Luthuli

She sees we should come together and face these challenges, and also be of assistance to our leaders.
