RIP Nelson Mandela

President Jacob Zuma confirmed the death of former President and anti-apartheid icon, Nelson Mandela. In his nationwide broadcast, late Thursday, President Zuma said "He is now resting. He is now at peace. Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father."

Some of my favourite Mandela quotes:

Never, never, and never again, shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another and suffer the indignity of being the scum of the world. The sun shall never set on so glorious a human achievement. Let freedom reign, God bless Africa."

“No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion,”
“People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

"When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and country, he can rest in peace. I believe I have made that effort and that is, therefore, why i will sleep for eternity."

He inspired generations, May he rest in peace.
