Thanks Mary. This is an exciting event. Mandela is one of a very few
leaders in the entire world whose heart is truly for the people, but a
large part of his energy was spent behind the bars. I wish he was
younger too, people like Mugabe, Kibaki and others would behave
differently.I wish him fifty more year, if he has no illness bothering
