In July this year, I wrote a piece titled “The Day Before”, dedicated to the life of Madiba. I mentioned that on the day of your death, everybody will normally be expected to say good things about you, even if they had been saying terrible things about you the day before your death.

Former president Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, one of the most towering figures of our times passed into history on 5 December 2013. As this man whose unmatched dedication to the lives of others is being laid to rest at Qunu on 15 December, a moment of mourning and celebration of his vast oeuvre spanning over four generations has dawned upon us.
