Rest In Peace Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” – Nelson Mandela 

Former South African president Nelson Mandela has died, aged 95. His death was announced by current president Jacob Zuma at a media conference late on Thursday night, local time.

“Our nation has lost its greatest son”, Zuma said as he announced Mandela’s peaceful passing at his home in Johannesburg on Thursday December 5.

“What made Nelson Mandela great was precisely what made him human. We saw in him what we seek in ourselves.

“Fellow South Africans, Nelson Mandela brought us together and it is together that we will bid him farewell.

“May his soul rest in peace, God bless Africa.”
