”Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great. You be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom. Of course the task will not be easy. But not to do this would be a crime against humanity, against which I ask all humanity now to rise up.” – Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela To celebrate 25 years of our democracy with the people of the world who recognize, honour, commend and doff their hats to an extraordinary being who wants walked this earth and made the world a better place and to experience it first hand on this trip has been nothing short of humbling. When you hear from a great leader of the new world President @barackobama ( well he will always be the President of the United States to me) speak of the profound impact of what Madiba has had on his life, his leadership, his consciousness, juxtaposed with what a true Statesman is about….all that is left me to say is that…..WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE! Thank you Lord for this gift of seeing history daily in the making! Hangwani @rubiconclothing what I wore on Freedom Day rates as one of the most iconic couture gowns I have ever had made. It represents all that is Proudly South African with ostrich feathers et al. Your design aesthetic was breathtakingly received by most of the guests at the momentous occasion. It’s so good to be African, it is so good to be proudly South African! Amandla ✊🏽 #Mandela100 #LetFreedomReign #AfricaYourTimeIsNow
