Readers write about the international influence of Nelson Mandela on International Nelson Mandela DayChanging South Africa
There is no doubt that Mandela created a revolution, forever marking his name in South Africa’s history, and it is laudable. Even though he was described as part of a terrorist organisation in 1987 by British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, after a three-hour long discussion in 1990, he changed the image of South Africa. Even though Mandela has departed, millions of people pay tribute to this great leader who believed in peace. I salute this leader on this occasion. He played a major role in South African people’s welfare and prosperity.
