Ace News Group – Tribute – 10th December 2013
It was with the deepest regret that we have learned of the passing of our founder, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela – Madiba. The Presidency of the Republic of South Africa and shortly after-ward further official announcements.
EXTRACT: We all now want to express our sadness at this time. No words can adequately describe this enormous loss to the nation and to the world.
We give thanks for his life, his leadership, his devotion to humanity and humanitarian causes. We salute our friend, colleague and comrade and thank him for his sacrifices for our freedom. The three charitable organisations that he created dedicate ourselves to continue promoting his extraordinary legacy.
