Graça Machel shared a touching message with South Africans on Mandela Day 2021. Her passionate video was thoughtfully constructed. She used her fellow countrymen and women to bring the best of themselves to the table.
Weary yet determined, we have been valiantly swimming against the current to overcome the Third Wave of COVID-19, and we have now been mercilessly plunged into the dark and painful waters of civil unrest.
She said that the deaths of more than 100 people will stain the conscience of those responsible for orchestrating the violence. Machel said that the violence and destruction experienced in South Africa have no place in the country. She was particularly pained that it took place in the week of her late husband’s birthday.
She said that Mandela is watching his beloved country and is still with us. He is a reminder to us that we can overcome.
