We share our memories of the passing of the iconic leader

Today a big hole was carved out of the heart of the world, as the epitome and model of regal leadership, courage and lover of justice, Nelson Mandela bade us farewell. Our condolences to the Mandela family, the people of South Africa, and lovers of justice, and peace everywhere. The dream will live forever

    I disagree 1000%, here is why

    Mandela and Zuma gold mine ‘exploiting workers’

    Eighteen years after the end of apartheid, South Africa is now judged to be one of the most unequal societies in the world. More than half of South Africa’s children live in dire poverty

    According to South African novelist Zakes Mda:
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/healthnews/9280481/More-than-half-of-South-Africas-children-live-in-poverty.html
    “The disillusionment of young black South Africans began when Nelson Mandela was president.

    “So did the unbridled accumulation of wealth by the ruling party apparatchiks, accompanied by the marginalisation of all those deemed to lack ‘struggle credentials’.

    “While cadres of the party gained positions of power and wealth, both in the public and private sectors, the rest of the black population remained poor and out of work.
