Nelson Mandela was a great leader of Africa, a true icon who has made the impossible possible. He was a man well loved and respected by many.
Madiba, as he was fondly referred to, was an inspirational figure to all in South Africa, the greater Africa and the world in general. His commitment to changing the world for the better that was inspired by his belief in service to fellow men will always be remembered. We hope many other such leaders can emerge in Africa who will follow in his footsteps and echo his humility.
AMREF expresses great sorrow and offers its sincerest sympathy at the sad news of the death of Madiba.
