Yes Mi Irieites,
I did promise that I would get back to you on this. Time has ticked away, but no second has passed without us having thoughts for Nelson Mandela in our hearts.
At the beginning of the month, I received a few phone calls pertaining to Mandela being in hospital and his condition on “being hopeless.” At that time I was asked by a few close friends to put something together for him before he goes. I made reference of getting back to them on the issue but never did. My reason? I had this deep belief that if Nelson survived all the turmoil the way he did for all those years, there was no reason why he would not be unable to gather that well known inner energy he has to be around for his 95th birthday.
My instincts paid off and I feel good about that. So here is one more tribute to Madiba himself; Nelson, you served us well. We are honoured to be witnesses and beneficiaries of your achievements in life.
Neither will we forget Winnie.
As the struggle continues, we wish you all the best on this special day, 18th July 2013.
