Major impact

Resident impressed by the legacy of Nelson Mandela

In olden days the sight of the luminescent head and streaming tail of an incoming comet was considered to be a bad omen, a harbinger for catastrophe.

In 1918 a human comet was born in Mvezo, South Africa but went unnoticed.

The enlightening aura surrounding Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela intensified over the years.

People all around the world soon realized he was a good omen, a harbinger for peace, hope and justice.

Inevitably, the strength of Nelson Mandela’s mortal light faded.

Now he has disappeared into the mysterious darkness of death.

Pensive people around the world are standing side by side, sharing their dreams and marvelling at the impact of this extraordinary man.
