Local media personality Bonang Matheba will return to the Global Gift Nelson Mandela Centenary Dinner on Tuesday at the Rosewood Hotel in London.

Matheba, who has hosted numerous prestigious events globally, will add a feather to her cap as she takes over this year’s hosting duties during the gala dinner, which will be attended by some of Hollywood’s biggest names such as Vanessa Williams, Pamela Anderson and seven-time Grammy award winner Beverley Knight.

The elated Matheba said yesterday: “The founder of Global Gift approached me and said she had heard of my work and asked if I’m interested to see what they are about as an organisation.

“As someone who is also invested in uplifting young African girls, I was sold and I am quite excited to be part of this amazing initiative which will at the same time honour the late uTata Madiba. However, I will also use the opportunity to honour the late Mama Winnie Mandela who I adored.

“I will be wearing a doek on the red carpet and if anyone asks I will tell them that I am in solidarity with my South African sisters who started the #AllBlackWithDoek campaign in her
(Madikizela-Mandela’s) honour.”
