Briefly.co.za posed an interesting challenge to our readers via social media and they responded with some of Nelson Mandela’s most memorable quotes.
Former South African President, Nelson Mandela, was a global icon and much more than a politician.
A national hero who earned international acclaim for his fight against apartheid as well as the sense of humanity he displayed once in power.
It stands to reason that someone with such legendary status would have said some great things.
With this in mind, Briefly.co.za asked our readers to share some of Madiba’s most memorable quotes.
We issued the digital challenge via Facebook on Thursday and social media users weren’t shy as they helped us reminisce on some Madiba magic.
Lilly Christinah Selolo-Maenetja said, “It always seems impossible until it is done.”
Maureen Phoshoko commented, “It is an ideal for which i am prepared to die.”
Ncebakazi Sifuba added, “Never , never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land of ours will experience the oppression of one by the other.”
Pamela Johannes said, “If the ANC does what the Apartheid government did then you must do to the ANC what you did to the Apartheid government.”
Sthe Vilakazi added, “I want my wife and children to be free in their country.”
Reuben Seele Gonza commented, “I come before you not a saint...but I come before you as your servant. I have fought against black domination...and I have fought against white domination.”
