Wishing Madiba a happy birthday and God bless him for many more years with us. My wish is for everyday to be a Madiba day. Seeing people of all races working together cleaning schools, hospitals and visiting the ophans and old people of this country makes my heart so happy that it brings tears to my eyes. South Africans we can make this a better place as Madiba wants us to.
Awesome Max, as usual:)

You already know this right…….. Awesome stuff Maximise. Everything you touch turns to gold. You are gifted my friend.
You are the democracy icon of our planet representing South Africa. You have put so many smiles on poor rural populations ignored by most governments. You represents the poor and weak and gives guidance to the oppressed people all over the world. This is the time for all of us to sing Happy Birthday Madiba and put smile on you. God Bless You. Long live Madiba.
Nice work, Max :)
