Thousands of people dedicated 67 minutes of community service in honour of Nelson Mandela's 94th birthday.
Bidvest Bank’s Duncan Nkosi said every South African has a social responsibility to help those that are less fortunate.
“Nelson Mandela Day is not an event. It is a daily activity because it is 67 minutes everyday.”
The bank donated accessories and a new kit for the cricket team at the Lodirile High School in Kugersdorp where the Highveld Lions held a cricket lesson for the pupils.
More sponsors are expected to help the school erect cricket nets later in the year and assist pupils with its vegetable garden.
In Cape Town, Planning Minister Trevor Manuel said the spirit of service should not depend on an emblem like Nelson Mandela.
Manuel spent Mandela Day in his constituency, Mitchells Plain.
He helped build wheelchair ramps for the disabled and painted over walls defaced by vandals.
Manuel was schooled in the art of getting learners to listen to their elders and despite the interruptions, he managed to remind learners that they owe it to themselves, their communities and those like Madiba to stand up and take responsibility.
"That spirit of sacrifice lives on, and it lives on in each one of you. It's a day for celebration, but it's also a day to remember who we are and where we come from."
Manuel said we should serve beyond the 67 minutes highlighted on Madiba’s birthday.
Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu said Madiba’s heart would bleed if he knew of everything happening in the country on Wednesday.
Addressing 250 of the world's emerging young leaders at the Free State University, Tutu said luckily Madiba is not fully aware of the country's political status quo.
Urging the youth to send old people to their graves with smiles rather than heartache, Tutu asked them to ensure that the country is not destroyed by certain people.
Along similar lines, Mandla Mandela said South Africa lacks the quality of leadership that Madiba had displayed.
Madiba's grandson spoke in Mvezo, Eastern Cape, where he spent most of Wednesday painting a school and planting trees at a clinic.
He said current leaders and young people must take lessons from his grandfather and work towards unifying South Africa.
