“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”- Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela

This brought tears to my eyes. Especially when you think about the struggle against apartheid. The sacrifice of the freedom fighters to ensure that EVERYONE enjoys the sames rights and privileges and for that alone I say….

It has been worth the struggle…” Farai Gundan

So South Africa’s Reserve Bank announced that new banknotes bearing the face of South Africa’s former President, NELSON MANDELA, will come into circulation next Tuesday, November 6TH, 2012.


The new banknotes feature an image of Nelson Mandela on the front with images of the “Big Five” animals on the back. It is important to note that, Tata Mandela becomes the FIRST person to appear on the country’s banknotes since democracy.

For that alone, I celebrate this significant milestone….HALALA!
