Tribute to Madiba
Keiskamma Trust joined the mourning nation and the rest of the world by observing a moment of silence and a holding a service of remembrance on Friday last week to mark the passing of our former and first democratically elected president - Dr Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.
With gratitude Keiskamma Trust would like to pay our last respects to this remarkable father of the nation and the greatest statesman Africa has ever produced. We find ourselves torn between celebrating his life and legacy and our grief at his passing. In one of his many words of wisdom he once said "I stand before you not as a prophet but as a servant of you the people"
That's how we would like to honour and remember him by emulating the values he stood for - values of humanity, forgiveness and self-sacrificing service to all.
