Struggle hero and global icon Nelson Mandela today celebrates his 93rd birthday. In his honour thousands of South Africans committed to doing 67 minutes of charitable work, Times LIVE reporter Roderick Macleod went along to get birthday messages from volunteers.
To the greatest man alive, happy birthday. May God continue to keep you and use you as a beacon of light in a dark world. One of the highlights of my life was getting was getting a photo with the statue. Long live Madiba, father of Africa.
Happy birth day tata Madiba… thank you for your good leadership and for leading by example, and showing the world what the value humanity really means… May God bless you.
