The visionary leader and the enormous inspiration to the world, Nelson Mandela have passed away peacefully. The people of South Africa have lost a father. Nelson has achieved more than what could be expected.
US president Barack Obama said he considered himself among the "countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela's life", and the world was unlikely to see the likes of him again.
Prime Minister Tony Abbott paid tribute to Mandela during a radio interview on 3AW. "Nelson Mandela was one of the great figures of Africa, arguably one of the great figures of the last century," he said.
"A truly great man. And while I never met him, I did read that book A Long Walk To Freedom, and I guess the impression we get of Nelson Mandela is someone who suffered but was not embittered but ennobled through that suffering."
Lets pray for his peace and pay tribute to the visionary leader in the world.
