“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead” – Nelson Mandela
Jive Africa, shares with South Africa as a nation the profound sense of sadness and loss at the passing of our beloved Madiba, a true leader and a world icon. As we reflect on the life of this great person, there are many attributes from which we can learn, to re-shape our world. We ask ourselves “what makes a good leader?”, and it is clear that sacrifice, humility and compassion are among the words which capture the greatness of a leader like Nelson Mandela.
He has taught our nation to love one another despite colour, gender, status or religion and it is through this that we can shape our lives and the world we live in. His wisdom and values have definitely inspired us at Jive Africa to produce meaningful work towards the development of our country. We honour him (united in our diversity) by working towards a better South Africa and making the world a better place.
Hamba kahle Tata Madiba…
