In Summary

The African continent needs to emulate Nelson Mandela more than other races and bury the notion that Africans are an inferior jungle-like race unable to consider the welfare of others.

With Mandela’s demise, the world has got the opportunity to celebrate a life that triumphed over racial abuse. But there are still myriads of people afflicted and intimidated in one way or another by people who consider themselves more superior.

Mandela’s death is an opportunity for his life to inspire us and correct the crookedness in our world.

Taken like a drug in proper dosage, it can be an antidote to many ills in the human society.

The African continent needs to emulate Nelson Mandela more than other races and bury the notion that Africans are an inferior jungle-like race unable to consider the welfare of others.

Heads-of-State should preach and practice the gospel of reconciliation not just from racial viewpoint. But to bring together families, ethnic groups and nations that are at loggerheads.
