    What can I say, he said it himself. A remarkable man in many ways.

    There isn't a bad soul which has not been changed by Nelson to forgive and forget..and unite.

    Now he is truly free....

    Rest in peace Mr Mandela

    Let's all hope that South Africa will continue on a positive journey without his influence.

    I studied Mandela at university back in the early 1990's. A remarkable man, who will be greatly missed.
