Our country mourns the passing away of our beloved Madiba. It is up to us as individuals to decide how we are going to live up to his legacy.
The Nelson Mandela Foundation calls on all South Africans in these words:
"We know all South Africans and indeed the world join us in this profound sense of loss and sadness on the death of our beloved Founder, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.
Let us stand together now and in the days ahead, and do what needs to be done to honour with dignity Tata Madiba. We know you share with many of us the same passionate wish to see Nelson Mandela’s legacy being kept alive and made available to the world.
His legacy lives on in all of us – it is in our hands now."
