I just returned from church and tuned into CNN and whilst a financial news programme was going on, the presenter was interrupted with breaking news and next thing I saw on my TV was South African president Jacob Zuma about to make a statement.
Quite frankly, I knew something was wrong the moment Jacob Zuma came on air and my fears were confirmed when he spoke …..”Fellow South Africans, Nelson Mandela, the first black president of South Africa, is dead”.
May his soul rest in peace.
I will dedicate an entire blog post to the late Madiba in the coming days. I’m just too emotional to write anything now.
RIP Mandela. Every man will have his day. At 95 years, you almost had a century.
That’s all for now guys.
“Every man will have his day”
