Tata Nelson Mandela celebrated his birthday as he was turning 93. He is a great man. A son of Africa, as the world celebrates his life I remember his world about how precious our children are, as Nelson Mandela so often reminds us is: To make the world familiar with the smiles of children rather than their tears. The possibility of such world, can only be a reality if we all work for it.
Mandela in his 90s has is still much involved in helping the children of the world through his Nelson mandela children's fund, through this organization he has been able to start up projects like the mandela football tournament that united children across the world through the beloved game of football, among other projects, this is a challenge to our leaders in Tanzania and Africa who after retiring from politics do not actively engage in helping our impoverished society Tanzania still needs you so does the world, Tata Mandiba I have never met you in person like many people but the children of Africa THANKS YOU
