I am very shocked to hear a person whom I call as my grandfather, Nelson Mandela, (is) very ill. I have so much respect and appreciation for him. He’s a great leader and inspiring figure, not only for the motherland Africa but worldwide. When I heard he’s critically ill, I couldn’t help but wish him speedy recovery. Africa needs Mandela. And will always need him.

With all the hardships he had gone through, (there is) no way Africa (would be) able to repay the sacrifice he made. He had walked in dark valleys over and over again nonviolently fighting for peace in (an) atmosphere where race took its longest strides..

I wish you speedy recovery, grandfather Mandela.

Yahya Salah Moburuk
