Nelson Mandela Day …

with 9 comments

It is in giving that we receive
In loving that we are loved
In sacrificing that others do sacrifice for us
Self sacrificing for others is key to improving peace, sustaining development, sustaining freedom and justice. The opposite would be seeking for personal glory. Whatever we do, we should do it because we believe in it and that it is for humanity and not for personal glory.

Mzee Nelson Mandela … you rightly deserve to be honoured because you did not live your life for your own self but for others. You sacrificed your own happiness so that generations and generations will lead a happy life. You have shown how we can re-create ourselves and become better human beings … capable of transcending our own egos.

The United Nations Population Fund (UNPF) Representative in Tanzania, Dr. Julitta Onabanjo, said the commemoration of Mandela International Day is an opportunity to recognize Madiba’s dedication to the service of humanity across many fields.

Speaking to the commemoration yesterday Dr. Onabanjo said Nelson Mandela’s accomplishments came at a great personal cost to himself and his family and he sacrificed his life to serve the life of his people and Africa in general.

Dr. Onabanjo highlighted that Nelson Mandela has made the world a better place for all people everywhere. It is important to thank him for everything he has done for improvement of freedom, justice and democracy.

She said during his Presidency Mandela established the National Youth Commission in South Africa to safeguard the aspirations of the young people and assisting the Government in evolving policies that were sensitive to their needs and aspirations.

“Nelson Mandela is a towering figure, he embodies the highest values of humanity and of the United Nations, his life strength and his decency are examples to us all, he fought his oppressors for years and forgave them,” She said.

She said Mandela is such an inspiration to millions because he was not backed by money or power and he is an ordinary man that is why he has achieved extraordinary things.

Dr. Onabanjo highlighted that during the liberations movements in the 50s/60s the struggles were led by young Africans the likes of Nelson Mandela who we honouring today, Baba wa Taifa Mwalimu Julius Nyerere, Kwame Nkurumah, Oliver Thambo and others.

In November last year, the UN declared July 18th ‘Nelson Mandela International Day’ to honour his contributions to the development of culture of peace, justice and freedom.

    • Indeed, Nelson Mandela (Madiba) has shown us all the way to becoming better persons. It doesn’t matter WHAT a person IS or WHO a person IS, we all have the obligation of ensuring that we become better persons … useful persons to humanity.
