Daughter of Nelson Mandela Launches Liverpool Memorial Project

Nelson Mandela's grandaughter and daughter in Princes Park, Liverpool, where a memorial will be built in his honour.

The daughter of Nelson Mandela has called for people to fight against a "resurgence in emphasising difference", as she visited the site in Liverpool where a memorial will be built in his honour.

The former South African president's eldest daughter Dr Makaziwe, or Maki, Mandela and his granddaughter Tukwini Mandela visited the city on Monday to see the site where a permanent memorial will be built.

Addressing community members and schoolchildren in Princes Park, Toxteth, Dr Mandela, 65, said: "I think that the memorial garden that is going to happen here should be a reminder to all of us that we all have it in our hands to change the world, it's not a single person who can change the world.
