A man with an unequal quality of integrity,prestige and apure heart full of courage even at the face of impossibilities.Formed by a great passion for humanity,equiped by a flaming determination,born by struggle in the black devastating soil of Africa,my mother land. Whoelse is he,if not the greatest African president,Nelson Mandela.A life full of struggle he had not for himself,but for the freedom of the entire 'mama' Africa. This should be agreat example to all the selfish,corrupt and blood sucking leaders of Africa who don't want to pass through the furnance of struggle.It should be well known to all leaders that the way to the top can only be navicated by those whose life is born out of struggle. This I believe is the very lesson the 'life of struggle' found in the life of Nelrson Mandela portrait.A great lesson for the past,present and the future generatoin to come.
