Mvezo - President Jacob Zuma on Sunday called on South Africans to unify by drawing lessons from former president Nelson Mandela's legacy.
"One of the lessons that we must draw from the Mandela legacy is that we must work together to entrench unity and solidarity in our country," Zuma told thousands of people who attended Mandela's birthday celebrations at Mvezo Royal Palace in the Eastern Cape.
He said the spirit of unity displayed during the World Cup showed that unity between people of different races was possible.
During the FIFA World Cup South Africans were united and they worked together to achieve one goal.
"We urge a continuation of this spirit of African unity, love and friendship."
Zuma thanked all South Africans who dedicated 67 minutes to improve the lives of others in honour of Mandela's 92nd birthday.
