From Beijing to Bloemfontein, Cairo to Cuito Cuanavale, London to Lagos, Nelson Mandela was revered as a statesman, a prophet of peace, a man of integrity and a beacon of hope.

Described by journalist John Carlin as “the moral colossus of our age, an individual whose example will inspire humanity forever”, Madiba set the bar of expectation very high in his aspirations for our country. He repeatedly stressed that it was a collective effort and that together we could attain the lofty ideals of his vision. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
