The world knows that Mandela's energy and spirit will be remembered throughout history!
He lived his truth and and set a standard of values by which to live for everyone, simple but profound. I honour the legacy he has left.
BUT Mandela did not just bring his truth to South Africa and the rest of the world for a moment in time, I believe he lived and died for these values to live on forever!
Many of us fought to end apartheid and risked our work and lives for this cause, we believed in everything Mandela lived and died for.
I would like to call on everyone who believes this, to stand together and make a difference, especially those who have a loud public voice! It is time to honour Mandela by getting this present government to resign, to call them to accountability and to end this disgraceful corruption that has permeated the ANC and our land. Zuma stands for everything that Mandela did not! this is not the ANC that was heralded in when Mandela became president of our country.
I feel embarrassed as a South African when I hear Zuma pay tribute to one of the greatest leaders that ever lived.
I am sure I am not alone in voicing these sentiments.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu, another man of such strength and fortitude, I would like to see and hear you echo, not only what Mandela said, but what he would say now to the people of South Africa.
