He should be an inspiration to us all. South Africa will be devastated. The world is devastated. He stood for the fact that whatever colour, religion or status; we are all made from the same cloth.

I agree Mary he did make a difference for everyone just the same as Martin Luther King Jr.

RIP & coincidence that John Lennon passed away the same day.

Hard to think of a more influential and inspiring human being. His grace upon release, forgiveness of his oppressors and pursuit of equality and peace is unequalled. RIP Nelson Mandela. And thank you.
