By Archbishop Emeritus Njongonkulu Ndungane, immediate past Archbishop of Cape Town.
I am deeply saddened by the passing away of Madiba.
Madiba’s passing marks an end of an era of a distinctive calibre of leadership, one that served the country with integrity and honour. Madiba’s leadership was characterised by a profound sense of purpose that espoused excellence in all its deeds.
I call on all South Africans to emulate Madiba’s legacy in terms of reconciliation, and in deepening our democracy that espouses the values that he stood for.
