Tributes to Nelson Mandela #RIPNelsonMandela

The current president of South Africa, Jacob Zuma announced the passing away of one of the iconic leaders of the world, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. Tata is the first black president in South Africa and only served one term.

At the announcing of his passing, Zuma said;  "Our nation has lost its greatest son."  Tata, as South Afrikans fondly call him, passed away at the age of 95 at his home in Houghton, Johannesburg. 

Some people come into our lives and quickly go,  some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts And we are never, ever the same will always be in our hearts and in our minds.
