Mthatha - Former president Nelson Mandela's favourite dish, samp and tripe, is on the menu for his 94th birthday, the Sowetan newspaper reported on Wednesday.
"We will probably have food like samp and tripe, his favourite food," Mandela's granddaughter Ndileka Mandela told the publication.
"The big lunch will be at 16:00 where we will present him with a cake."
The family would wish him a happy birthday in the morning before leaving to do community work.
"Our 67 minutes is a way of giving back to him and that is our birthday gift to him."
His ex-wife, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, and her children, Zenani and Zindzi, will do their 67 minutes at the Lusikisiki home of former ANC leader Oliver Tambo.
