Nelson Mandela is son of Africa but he is a universal leader that belongs to the entire world irrespective of colour, religion, sect, class and country due to his sacrifices for justice, truth, forgiveness and above all Ubuntu.
Sixteen-year-old Malala Yousfzai of Pakistan recently called Madiba “my leader”. The entire world has associated themselves with Madiba’s cause.
I suggest engaging city council, area MPs, MPP and the community to rename either King or Main streets in the name of Nelson Mandela and declare Hamilton a peace city. It will create huge social and economic attraction, recognition and support for Hamilton as a city.
