    Millions of SAfrican children sing for Mandela

    JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Nearly 12 million children across South Africa kicked off celebrations Wednesday for the 94th birthday ofNelson Mandela, the country's deeply loved anti-apartheid icon, with resounding choruses of Happy Birthday.
    Mandela is expected to spend the day privately with his family at their homestead in his southeastern birth village of Qunu. Meanwhile, communities in South Africa and around the world were dedicating 67 minutes of the day to volunteer work and projects for the needy — one minute to mark each of Mandela's 67 years in public service.
    Mandela became South Africa's first black president in 1994 after spending 27 years in prison for his fight against racist apartheid rule, and was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts.

    Same way they got us...while we were young! May the ancestors help those children!!!!....and may they grow up to not be as foolish as to accept a Nobel peace prize with their oppressor and the killers of their people like Mandela did!!

    Nelson Mandela celebrates 'quiet family' birthday

    [​IMG]

    Mr Mandela spent the day at home and made no public appearances

    The former South African president is believed to have spent a "quiet" day with family at home in the village of Qunu in the Eastern Cape.
    The man fondly referred to by his clan name, Madiba, now only appears rarely in public.
    He spent 27 years in jail for leading an armed anti-apartheid campaign and became president in 1994.
    Since his retirement from public life, the frenzy that erupts around his birthday each year has only grown - with some South Africans complaining his name has been debased by its association with a proliferation of causes.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    ... Okay, still another issue that divides rather than unite... smh. So the house is divided between Winnie and Nelson.

    Consider this on behalf of Mandela, his plate was full battling possible civil wars between townships, ANC, Zulu's and whites threatening a coup. Diplomatically, he did the best he could, in my book. The issue of Winnie and Nelson, which led to their separation concerned the shift from Winnie to Nelson after 33 years spent behind bars. But all of this is neither here nor there or productive, only a back and forth of the pass providing entertainment... your move.


    Peace In,
