This amazing old man has captured the hearts of so many around the world be it in sports, music, Hollywood, Bollywood and politics. I recall visiting Jamaica a few years ago and be shown the Nelson Mandela Highway , the tour guide refered to the high as Mandela Highway this infuriated me that I stopped her and said have respect for one of the Greatest Men that has ever lived.Thats how patriotic I am .
Many South Africans will recall us winning the 1995 World Cup Rugby and our beloved Madiba there with the trophy .As I write this i feel the tears pricking in my eyes and the goosebumps on my arms appearing.
We SOUTH AFRICANS love you and appreciate all that you have done to build and bring together our beloved rainbow nation. We pray that you dont suffer any longer …. your smile , your sense of humour and your wise words will live on forever ….
