Nelson Mandela remains in a critical condition in a Pretoria hospital.
The focus of the world remains on our country and millions of people are continuing to pray for Madiba and his family.
The focus over recent days has shifted to the Mandela family and family feuds are now dominating the headlines.
It’s sad, yes very sad. The focus should be on Tata at this time. But the family battles are taking precedence. It’s Mandela vs Mandela.
Let’s hope the Mandela’s can resolve their differences and unite- for the sake of Madiba and his legacy.
What would Madiba want? Unity, reconciliation, peace, harmony and happiness. Not feuds, conflict, disunity and unhappiness.
Let’s also move our focus now to Mandela Day on 18 July. Let’s mark Madiba’s birthday with a common purpose and goal- that of making a difference in the lives of others.
Let’s plan to do 67 minutes of community service. Let’s all Lead SA. As we countdown to 20 years of freedom on April 27 next year, let’s volunteer 20 hours of our time for good causes. Let’s start on 18 July and log 67 minutes of our time.
Let’s all join hands, stand up and do the right thing. Let’s do it for Madiba. L’
We wish Madiba well and let’s all continue to pray for him. Let’s hope the family sort out their squabbles now and focus on Tata.
