The Tshepo Institute joins the world in mourning the profoundly sad loss of His Excellency Nelson Mandela.  The indomitable spirit he embodied in enduring indescribable hardship in his determination to tear down the shackles of oppression that had plagued South Africa and to painstakingly show us the virtues of walking the path of reconciliation as opposed to revenge, shall remain an indelible inspiration for all South Africans and the world.

 The Tshepo Institute salutes you, Madiba!

Directorship, Tshepo Institute, December 2013
