He was:

“A giant of a man”

“A giant for justice”

“A champion for human dignity and freedom”

“An icon  for forgiveness and reconciliation.”

“Without forgivess, one cannot be free.”

“A moral compass for the world”

“A giant for justice”

He had a vision of moral authority, a “nobility and generosity of spirit.”

“His magic is everywhere.”

– Francois Pienaar (Springbok rugby World Cup winning captain in 1995)

Madiba was a symbol of the triumph of tenacity, justice and perseverance
