Radio personality Linda Sibiya has joined the list of people who can convincingly imitate former South African president Nelson Mandela – he nailed it!

Just a few days after Freedom Day the broadcaster shared a video clip in which he reads a speech, in Madiba’s voice, that reflects on how far South Africans have come to obtain the freedom they enjoy today.

In his speech, which makes you feel as if you’re watching a reincarnated Madiba, Linda highlights the highs and lows this nation has endured.

He also touches on the current coronavirus pandemic. He congratulates those in leadership positions and general citizens for a job well done in dealing with the disease.

He promises South Africans will overcome this just like they’ve overcome hardships in the past.

“You will survive corona and you will defeat it,” he said in closing.
