Nelson Mandela: A journey from hearts to Currency Notes

Nelson Mandela, who changed the course for millions of South Africans, will now have his face featured on all South Africa’s bank notes to honour the former president’s role in fighting apartheid, President Jacob Zuma said on Saturday.      
He lived in the hearts - he will now be seen on currency notes
The announcement coincides with the 22nd anniversary of Mandela’s release from prison after serving 27 years in jail for his opposition to white-only rule.

“It is a befitting tribute to a man who became a symbol of this country’s struggle for freedom, human rights and democracy,” Zuma said.
