Letter: Mandela on side of angels
Re: ‘Nelson Mandela: From activist to world icon’ (Metro, Dec. 6-8)
Nelson Mandela was the living proof of peace for at least the last 60 years and you start off with “Nelson Mandela was no angel”?! Seriously? Stephen Chan claims that his school made Mandela the saint he was, but he didn’t even attend the correspondence program through the University of London until after he was already serving his life sentence for fighting for equality and peace for his nation.
He served his 27 years and came out not only still fighting for peace in his country, but in the entire world.
