Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela died today December 5th 2013 at the age of 95.

He was an extraordinary man and an example of courage and faith in the face of adversity.

 He was one of the most respected and influential leader of our time. The hazards and the risks he faced were monumental but he perseverd. He became an honorary Canadian in 2001.

On behalf of CRHNet we send our condolences to his family and to all South Africans.
