Nelson Mandela, anti-apartheid icon and father of South Africa, went to rest in peace. Madiba who spent 27 years of his life in prison led his country to a new beginning marked by the end of apartheid. For world leaders and millions of people across the globe, Mandela is synonym to peace as his message was centered around forgiveness. The WOMEN & AFRICA community thanks Papa Nelson Mandela for everything he has done.
