During the time when the whole world is in the aftermath of Nelson Mandela’s death, one of the best ways to keep his legacy on long after he is gone is for our leaders to emulate him.

Mandela was a true freedom fighter who put his countrymen first and not himself. He did not only talk about peace and unity but also walked the talk. No wonder he was a symbol of unity and peace for both the black and White South African people and will continue to be for ages.

I think our leaders should be able to pick a leaf from one of the greatest African leaders of our time as a way of honouring his memory and keeping his candle burning. Rest in peace Mandela, your legacy will live for ages to come.
