Happy Birthday Madiba
One of my very few political heroes celebrates his 90th birthday today, Nelson Mandela´s impact on South Africa´s change from Apartheid state to Rainbow nation is one that can´t be overstated. This is one of the occasions when one person really made a tremendous difference. I had the opportunity and great pleasure of working as a wolunteer at one of Mandela´s first appearences abroad after being released from Robben Island after 27 years in prison 1990. It´s still a night and a speech that i treasure and cherish as one of my very best memories ever.
Happy Birthday Madiba!
