Hon Speaker, I move without notice:
That the House -
1) welcomes the good news that the film about the life of former President uTata Nelson Mandela was well received at the Toronto International Film Festival on Saturday, 7 September 2013;
2) notes that the film Long Walk To Freedom received an unprecedented eight-minute standing ovation, coupled with rapturous applause at the festival venue;
3) believes that this film depicts with great insights the life journey of uTata Nelson Mandela from his childhood in a rural village through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected president of South Africa;
4) further believes that the production of this film will remind us, as we celebrate the life of our international icon, to also contribute towards social cohesion, reconciliation and nation-building;
5) acknowledges that through this film, we need to draw inspiration from uTata Madiba to continue to build an inclusive society as the best way to honour his legacy; and
6) calls upon all South Africans to watch the film, as soon as it is released in South Africa in November, as a means to pay tribute to former President Nelson Rholihlahla Mandela. Agreed to.
