Today, former US president Barack Obama captivated thousands of people whilst delivering the keynote address in honour of Nelson Mandela at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.
“I believe in Nelson Mandela’s vision. I believe in a vision shared by Ghandi and King and Abraham Lincoln. I believe in a vision of equality and justice and freedom and multi-racial democracy built on the premise that all people are created equal and they’re endowed by our Creator certain inalienable rights. And I believe that a world governed by such principles is possible and that it can achieve more peace and more cooperation and pursuit of a common good.”Barack Obama
