Celebrating Madiba

2013-12-07 00:00

Former President Nelson Mandela rubbed shoulders with many celebrities during his lifetime. Those who met him took to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to share their thoughts, feelings and memories following his death on December 5.

• Oprah Winfrey: “One of the great honours of my life was to be invited to Nelson Mandela’s home, spend private time and get to know him. He was everything you’ve ever heard and more — humble and unscathed by bitterness. And he always loved to tell a good joke. Being in his presence was like sitting with grace and majesty at the same time. He will always be my hero. His life was a gift to us all.”
