South African Deputy President, Cyril Ramaphosa, has announced that the South African government was considering turning Mandela Day into an annual non-working public holiday in South Africa.

Late last year (06-Dec-2013), the South African Government has announced that the period of mourning for former President, Nelson Mandela, would not be accompanied by any one-off non-working public holidays in South Africa, and therefore that there will be no requirement for businesses to close on the day of Nelson Mandela's funeral.

Five years ago (04-Jun-2009), the Government of South Africa had announced a new, July 18, Nelson Mandela Day annual holiday, but it was later clarified that this July 18, Nelson Mandela Day, would not be an official non-working public holiday in South Africa (30-Jun-2009).
