This is so sad.

The former South African president Nelson Mandela sadly passed away on Dec. 5, 2013 in South Africa at the age of 95. This announcement was made by the current president Jacob Zuma.

For those who didn’t know, Mandela had been suffering from a recurring lung infection and was frequently in the hospital over the last year.

He gained popularity as a revolutionary leader who fought passionately against the injustice of apartheid and later dedicated himself to bringing the South African nation together peacefully after apartheid was abolished. He leaves behind an incredible legacy and will not be forgotten.

Nelson was survived by his third wife, Graça Machel, three children, 17 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.

Goodbye Madiba! I can’t stop replaying the song “President” done by Chaka Chaka in respect of this great man. He’ll surely be missed.
