It is with the deepest regret that we have learned of the passing of our founder, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela – Madiba.
We want to express our sadness at this time and condolences to the Mandela Family. No words can adequately describe this enormous loss to our nation and to the world.
We give thanks for his life, his leadership, his devotion to humanity and humanitarian causes. We salute our friend, colleague and comrade and thank him for his sacrifices for our freedom.
“During my lifetime, I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons will live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for. But, my lord, if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”
Our nation has lost his greatest son, Our people have lost their father. Your teachings, your lessons, your legacy will live with us and in our hearts forever. You have taught us the art of forgiveness and created a better place for all of us. You have established and provided the world with a blueprint of true leadership.
Rest in Peace…..Forever in our hearts.
