St. Petersburg – Descendants of the historical leaders of African liberation gathered in St. Petersburg, Russia, for an epoch-making meeting to celebrate the legacy of their eminent ancestors and forge collaborations to advance Africa’s prosperity.

The forum’s initiatives will be supported by RT International News Network and Ruptly Video Agency, who have pledged their expertise in media and cultural production to amplify the Forum’s endeavors.
The inaugural meeting witnessed the coming together of descendants from prominent African leaders, including Nelson Mandela (South Africa), Gamal Abdel Nasser (Egypt), Samora Machel (Mozambique), Julius Nyerere (Tanzania), Kenneth Kaunda (Zambia), Oliver Tambo (South African) and Ahmed Ben Bella (Algeria), whose indomitable spirit and dedication led the liberation movements across the continent.
Participants expressed a collective determination to safeguard their ancestors’ legacies and to impart the wisdom of these iconic leaders to inspire present and future generations.
The forum aims to be a bastion of African history, culture, and progress.
By curating authentic narratives and historical accounts, the forum seeks to instill a sense of pride and unity among Africans, bridging the gap between the past and the present.
Through strategic partnerships and collaborations, the forum will work to address contemporary challenges and foster socio-economic development across the continent.
In an unprecedented move, the meeting also witnessed the official collaboration between the African Legacy Forum and RT International News Network, along with Ruptly Video Agency.
These globally acclaimed media entities have pledged their support to promote the forum’s initiatives through their extensive reach and expertise in media and cultural production.
Their involvement will play a pivotal role in disseminating the untold stories of African liberation leaders, thus enriching the understanding of Africa’s history and its impact on the modern world.
“We are thrilled to announce the establishment of the African Legacy Forum, a platform that will honor the unwavering commitment of our ancestors to the liberation and progress of Africa,” said Ndileka Mandela, a founding member of the forum.
“We are equally excited to partner with RT International News Network and Ruptly Video Agency, whose collaboration will undoubtedly amplify the voices of our ancestors and help shape a brighter future for Africa.”
