WASHINGTON (AP) A program designed to foster a new generation of young African leaders will be renamed after former South African President Nelson Mandela, the White House said Sunday.
President Barack Obama, who has said he was one of the untold millions of people around the world who were inspired by Mandela's life, is set to announce the name change at a town hall-style event on Monday in Washington with several hundred young leaders from across sub-Saharan Africa.
The youngsters are participating in the inaugural Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders, part of the broader Young African Leaders Initiative that Obama launched in 2010 to support a new generation of leadership there. The fellowship is being renamed as a tribute to Mandela, who died last December at age 95.

Well he is an Obama man no doubt. He is a Communist, a murderer and his wife is a mass murderer.
Mandela was a member of ANC, a Soviet Union-aligned communist organization. No surprise that Zero would do this.
I guess Soetoro thought that Stalin and Lenin already had enough things named after them so he went for another famous communist on the list.
Why is the Republican House appropriating tax money for this program?
IS there nothing this guy won’t screw up?
..because he has nothing else, better, to do?
How about “The Mandela Necklace”?
Better than naming it for SAINT TRAYVON.
Wait till next year!
Has he renamed “My Brother’s Keeper” as the Trayvon Martin Institute yet?
More money down the rathole.
Undoubtedly the revised training for the program will include necklacing. They will have a large budget for tires and gasoline.
Mandella was a certified terrorist who bombed and killed children and police stations. He was convicted of 40 acts of outright terrorism. I guess obama likes terrorism.
Beat me to it.
I don’t think most of the republicans have a clue about what they are appropriating tax money for. How many of them actually read bills?
