Heroes are not heroes because they did the possible but that they imagined the impossible, fought for his materialism and actualised their thought.
Sir Nelson Mandela was not just a country hero, he is an African worldwide hero of class and standard. Despite the hurdles encountered in his quest for his people’s freedom, he chose to throw himself fully into the fight for justice, liberation and freedom.
A true genius recognised by the world as he won the 1993 Nobel peace prize jointly with F.W.de klerk.
He fought for South Africa’s peace and the democracy, which was what enabled him to earn the worthy position of the first black president of South Africa.
The list of Africa heroes can never be complete without the man Nelson Mandela.
