Mandela Madiba Tata Dies RIP

Mandela, Madiba, Tata... RIP

Mandela, our beloved Tata, passed away this morning at the age of 95. Nelson Mandela endured 27 years of prison, before emerging as an icon globally - promoting peace, tolerance and garnering international respect. Building bridges globally, that had previously been non existent - due to the evils of Apartheid.

"As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn't leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I'd still be in prison," Mandela said after he was freed in in 1990." -

Madiba struggled with a chronic lung infection, which drastically affected his quality of life, he died peacefully, surrounded by family members on Thursday night, 5th December.

The world mourns the loss of a great man.

Personal note:
Rest in peace Tata, I will never forget meeting you. You were gracious when a very 'young' me called out in greeting during one of your speeches... Thank you for saying "Hello there!" back at me! Xxx
