I wish to pass my deepest condolences to the Mandela family
and also thank them for offering their father to be the father of this great
nation South Africa.
Mandela has been a great leader indeed. South Africa is
blessed to have had a person of Nelson Mandela’s personality to guide us out of
the dark ages of apartheid to a democratic state.
If it wasn’t for him we
wouldn’t have been where we are today. RIP Madiba.

I had been blessed enough to have met Mandela.
personally think he is the direct definition of the word unconditional.
He has given us all a lesson in how to be humble and compassionate and
businesslike in one go.
think we will miss the greatest opportunity ever given to us if we don’t learn
from the greatest icon ever.

We honour the Lord for using the late Mr Nelson Mandela
to help bring our country out of the clutches racism.
When Greatness is no
longer in our midst, then we will truly be tested to see how much Greatness
really meant to us, only if we continue in that legacy of Greatness, then we
can say it was Greatness!!!
s in our hands as citizens to continue building
on the foundation laid by Madiba; of reconciliation;
justice; no to poverty and
We should not allow to be treated nor treat our fellow citizens in a
manner inappropriate;as we learnt by him.
It's gonna take a ordinary individual
to do the extraordinary,but together we can achieve more; as one.
