Now as much as ever, South Africa needs disciplined leaders, Nelson Mandela has said at birthday celebration in Pretoria.
Qunu - Nelson Mandela's legacy reminds leaders to lead by the will of the people, defend democracy and never discriminate, ANC president Jacob Zuma said on Saturday at a Mandela birthday celebration in the Eastern Cape.
He said Mandela's legacy reminded us that we must never discriminate against other people, no matter how unimportant we may think they are.
Speaking at a bash in celebration of Mandela's 90th birthday in his home town Qunu, Zuma said: "We are here to celebrate a life and legacy of a father, grandfather, comrade, warrior, soldier, nation builder and statesman.
"We are celebrating the life of man who became a symbol and embodiment of hope for African people in particular, and the ANC in general - a symbol of sacrifice, unity and of liberation."
You are the glue that holds us together as a nation. You provide eternal hope in our people and the world, that SA can only be a better place each day, said Zuma.
Mandela celebrated his 90th birthday on Friday and messages from around the country and the globe poured in for one of the world's most loved politician.
