South Africans celebrated the anniversary of Nelson Mandela's release on 11 February and one lady remembered the first democratic president with a stunning drawing.

Nadia Benade took to the #ImStaying Movement Facebook page on Tuesday to share a throwback photo of a pencil drawing she completed in 2011 to honour 30 years since Mandela's release.

Briefly.co.za gathered Benade captioned the snap with one of Madiba's famous quotes:

''No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.''
