[LISTEN] 'The Madiba brand is not just based on rhetoric'

Beyond its monetary value, Nelson Mandela's brand legacy has managed to hold its own as an embodiment of peace, forgiveness, caring, justice and equality.

Phemelo Motene spoke to media specialist, Tebogo Ditshego on how the brand has been able to survive despite changing sentiments on Mandela and his role in the apartheid struggle, as well as in the post-apartheid era.
