NELSON MANDELA MEMORIAL SERVICE

As the Greater Bitou gathers to celebrate the legacy of Tata Madiba, all the speakers had one main message:

Madiba’s legacy and his desire were to unite this beloved rainbow nation, South Africa, let us walk that very same path that he so generously paved for us . . .

On 10 May 1994 when he became the first democratically elected president, he inherited a country that was deeply divided. This period was characterised by anxiety, fears and deep seated mistrust.

However, where others only saw irreconcilable differences, Madiba, as a true visionary, saw a nation with more commonalities.

Our founding president brought a nation together against all odds due to his firm belief in peaceful dialogue.

His death has served to once again unite South Africans who have joined the world in mourning his loss and celebrating his remarkable life. He would have rejoiced to see the nation united in their determination to build on his legacy.
