On this day, one year ago, the world mourned the loss of a life that was well lived. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, who was born 18 July 1918 and died 5 December 2013.
His name is synonymous with determination, strength, change, transformation and magic. Madiba Magic to be more precise! His presence would fill a stadium of people and bring them together with love and hope for a future free of apartheid.
Madiba, a Xhosa, was born as part of the Thembu royal family and grew to become a world recognised anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician and philanthropist, who served as the President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999.
His life and his legacy will never be forgotten and he will always be a symbol of peace and the Father of Our Nation.
Thank you Madiba for being who you were. May your soul rest in peace.
