I am devastated and broken. Nelson Mandela was and always will be the father of democracy in our country and in Africa. I am beyond greatful that I was alive and was privileged enough to witness his legacy and be a part of his journey.
He is the ultimate human being and will live in my heart forever. May his legacy inspire us to continue to be a united nation.

It is because of Tata that I am who I am today. Through his endless selfless acts that I can dream & achieve what my fore fathers thought was impossible. He embodied what I strive to be, a good human who keeps trying and one who is a blessing to others.
It is my duty & that of all South Africans to carry the torch of his legacy. His awesomery will never die. Long Live the spirit of Madiba! Viva my ‘Black president’!
