Obama to speak at Mandela lecture


The US’s first black President Barack Obama will deliver the annual Nelson Mandela lecture in South Africa’s main city, Johannesburg, on 17 July to honour the centennial of the anti-apartheid icon’s birth, the Nelson Mandela Foundation has said.

The foundation’s chief executive, Sello Hatang, said the foundation had been looking for someone with “an Africa heritage” to deliver the address.
