It the great man’s 94th birthday today and last year he trended worldwide as the THE greatest living human being…well he’s a year older and guess what, he is still THE greatest living human being.
Happy birthday Madiba.
Still my favourite picture of the legend. The Daddy of all daddy’s.
And of course my favourite quote:
“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people, I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if it needs be it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”
That has to go go down as one of the gretest quotes of all time.
At 8am today 12 million schoolchildren will be singing Happy Birthday to Madiba..check it.
If you hear really loud noises along Beach Road in Sea Point around 8am..that will be me singing at the top of my lungs.
