Happy Birthday to M.T.N.R. MANDELA
« on: Jul 20, 2013 »

Madiba!


Today, I add my little voice to that of the teeming millions, in celebrating the 95th birthday of Madiba Tata Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.

I appreciate this down to earth man who carries honour lightly and never get carried away by wings of fame. I convey my goodwill message to the one whose commitment to freedom teaches us never to be intimidated by mountains, nor succumb to the gaping valleys of oppression. I implore ‘leaders’ whether spiritual or temporal to learn from this humble man made great by his revolutionary commitment to public good.

In one of his famous speeches made after his release from prison, Madiba said to his audience, ‘I present myself to you, not as a prophet but as a servant’.  And how true!  For his decades of service, the generation he serves has never ceased being grateful. They keep pouring unsolicited appreciations and praises on this world citizen, now confined to discomfort of sickness.  The true love being shown to Tata reminds every ‘leader’, you do not need a hired crowd to sing your praises, you do not need a commanded audience to bring you gifts, you do not need to build a personality cult or encourage patronage to earn popular respect, and you do not need to make people fear you to earn their obedience. Indeed, Tata, you remind us, we do not need to command, enslave minds, and put them in perpetual fear, to earn their loyalty and trust!

Rolihlahla, you do not speak in tongues, yet by your lifestyle, you teach many to speak the tongue of political freedom. You do not lay claim to any healing power, yet, in all the places of the earth, your commitment to liberty has given encouragement to many.  You do not claim to be perfect, yet your people hardly see your faults!  You deny being a prophet, yet your words and acts of courage have torn apart the world of apartheid and set a whole generation on a lasting path of change.

Yes, to those who think that status quo is ever unlikely to change, in your ebbing body and fading breaths, Madiba, you keep on reminding us that change is possible. Change will come one day!
As time ticks toward eternity, my respect, Madiba!

Leave it for God, don't worry yourself. Leave it for God, don't cry no more.
