QUNU - One of former President Nelson Mandela's grandsons is spearheading a plan for what he's called 'the biggest march the country has ever seen'.

Ndaba Mandela says the event is planned for 5 December 2016, when the second commemoration of his grandfather's death takes place.

It is going to be an all-white affair.

Ndaba, Madiba's second eldest grandson, has urged everyone to wear what he has descried as the colour symbolising peace.

The Eastern Cape government and the Nelson Mandela Museum have backed the planned march, which Ndaba says is going to be the biggest one yet.

"We're getting everyone to be there. Next year, 2015 it's going to be on a Saturday, so you have no excuse."

He says the upcoming march is in support of the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence against Women and Children campaign.
