Yesterday 05th December 2013 the sad news was confirmed that South Africa’s most revered citizen, Dr Rolihlahla Nelson Mandela, has passed away at the age of 95.
Mandela, one of the most highly respected individuals around the world, did more for South Africa as a country than words can possibly describe, including playing a major role in the renaissance of Africa. Mandela shall surely be remembered as an icon for reconciliation and a humble soul that had so much respect for humanity, a principle he lived for and never compromised.
The Anglican Students Federation, like every other society in South Africa and the world, have been hurt hard by the news of his passing and wish to sincerely send our heartfelt condolences to his family and all the people whose lives his work has benefited. The sad news is not just a blow to South Africa, but to the whole world, a world that has lost one of its best creations.
May he rest in peace, his memories will never grow old.
