From Prisoner to President, Nelson Mandela was a remarkable man. 27 years in prison to fight for the struggle for freedom.Only history will tell the true greatness of Nelson Mandela. A colossus and a secular giant of man who exhumed a persona of calm, peace and tranquility as well as a saint who gave the gift of life and hope to millions.
His remarkable feat of ensuring prison by fighting against s system that gave provided challenges of bitterness, anger and violence. However he brought about a transformational revolution brought about by his humility and forgiving nature.
He was able to lead a country that was on the brink of destruction and through his political astuteness was able to triumph with remarkable consequences.
MPIC pays tribute to the man who fought for freedom against discrimination. His struggle for justice was an inspiration not for the people in South Africa, but for generations around the world.
Mandela’s life gives us a model of how we should adopt ourselves. He gave us courage to challenge injustice. He was an example that epitomised humility, equality, justice and peace.
