I passed his house in J’berg and was struck by how modest it was in comparison to the houses of other leaders in Africa I have passed. He will be remembered for the right reasons when they are forgotten for the wrong reasons

Hi Ian,
He was a very humble man. I agree entirely with your sentiments!

Past and hopefully future guests. Londolozi holds a special place in our hearts, as I am sure for many reading this.
After Madiba was set free he travelled. Onto a place we once lived, at the time, Boston. All things stopped for this. As an Australian, temporary but happy resident felt so happy to be included, at least in my own mind, with this leap forward. Sounds strange but when I personally look at his legacy, I admire his grace. Enjoy the special day. There is so very, very much to admire, respect and follow.

James extremely well written mate and news to me that Madiba was at Londo. The Freedom Way path that I criss crossed many times is all the more special to me now!

Hi Eshwar,
He did indeed visit, a couple of times!

We, here in Canada, celebrate Mandela Day with everyone there in beautiful South Africa and one of our main City of Toronto streets has been renamed Nelson Mandela Boulevard. He was a great man, and I agree James, it is doubtful that we will ever see his like again.
