Cape Town renames the Eastern Boulevard after Nelson Mandela

The City of Cape Town has renamed Eastern Boulevard in the city centre after Nelson Mandela ahead of the former President's 93rd birthday on Monday.
Mayor Patricia de Lille said they were renaming Eastern Boulevard after Nelson Mandela because he (Mandela) had shown the way towards a society full of opportunities and built on mutual respect.
