The breaking news of his death, on the 5th of December was a sad one for South Africans and to the world at large.
An Icon, a man loved by so many all over the world,from politicians,sport men and women,musicians,actors and actresses etc A man who have inspired so many. A man who fought for his country freedom, a man of peace, a great leader, a man who understood the sprit of reconciliation, a devoted servant,peace maker and man of the people.
What a great lost for Africans, he will always be remembered by so many for his work and his legacy will forever lived on this planet!
I urge leaders all over the world, especially African leaders to follow his example and be a good servant like him, and try to make difference and change for their countries, to be a better place for their citizens.Africa must wake up!
May God Grant his family and the people of South Africa the grace to bear this great lost.
I will be donating this great piece to Nelson Mandela foundation, as my tribute and honor to his work and legacy toward humanity.
Long live Madeba!!!
