Nelson Mandela, he no longer belongs to us. He now belongs to the ages!

Tata Madiba over the years

He no longer belongs to us. He now belongs to the ages. Mandela joins a select few unifying world leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Mother Theresa. These leaders unified people across all races, religions, countries and continents. These leaders continue to inspire generation after generation.#Africa‘s own son Nelson Mandela is one of the World’s Greatest Leaders. #Africa’s own will inspire through the ages.

100 years from now people will still talk about Nelson Mandela. 100 years from now people will still quote Tata, Madiba. Such will be his influence.

I hope that Mandela’s cherished values and principles will live on not just here in South Africa but across the entire continent of #Africa. Simple living, respect for constitutional term limits and putting country and continent above self interest were just a few things key in Mandela’s leadership. Madiba may be gone but through his spirit Africa will continue rising. Long live the spirit of Nelson Mandela!
