Madiba all because of you

28 June 2013, 07:04
It wasn't easy for you in the apartheid regime
You kept on fighting for us 
You had a long walk to freedom
In 1994 we as coloureds could vote for the first time
Freedom was ours
Yes freedom was ours

Because of you Madiba we had access to clean water,proper sanitation
We could go places where we never could before
Because of you we had housing
Thank you for giving us freedom

You are the glue that kept our country together
South Africa will never have a president like you
Someone that teached us what peace are
Someone that shows us the true meaning of Ubuntu

Madiba many call you tata
The father of our nation
Today we are known as the rainbow nation
All because of you...
