It's hard to imagine how the fight against apartheid would have gone without him. Such an amazing person, 95 is long enough to fight that battle. Rest in peace.

In a world of fake heroes and celebrities he was the real deal. May he be an inspiration to future generations. RIP.

I never thought I;d see him released. And then to become President, and forgive those who wronged him, well he well he was extroidinary in every way. A man among men. Who so we have now of that caliber? The ass balloon clowns we have now are woefully shitty. RIP my friend,RIP.
