I had the opportunity to meet Madiba once during November 1996 during a rally in Macassar, Somerset West. In my role as a minister of faith I was requested to open the meeting with a prayer, a custom for the ANC then.
A comical moment : I prayed in English, Madiba spoke in Afrikaans.
Today, after migrated to NZ with my family in 2007, I attended a memorial service in the holy Trinity Cathedral, Auckland, NZ. Moving tributes made by the speakers. Madiba's (Biblical/theological ) legacy and prophetic role on social justice, development, peace and reconciliation, his priesthood of care for others at the most grassroots level and kingship on honest government will for ever be our vision.
God bless !!!
