Dr Cecil Abrahams Shares His Memories of Nelson Mandela
News of the passing of former President Nelson Mandela reached the Vancouver campus community with dismay. Dr Cecil Abrahams sent the following message to the community. "As someone who has known former President Nelson Mandela well, it is with deep sadness that I wish to inform the FDU community of his passing away. I was privileged to work side by side with President Mandela and I watched him in awe as he transformed South Africa. In my many discussions with him, I admired a larger than life person who believed deeply in education and who gave so much of himself to South Africa and the world. Mandela will be sorely missed.
"Hamba Kahle Comrade Madiba." (Translation from Sotho: "Go well Comrade Madiba")
Dr Abrahams was also interviewed on various local radio and national TV stations. His CTV News interview can be viewed here.
A memorial will be held on the Vancouver campus for Nelson Mandela on December 10, 2013 at 11:30 am in the Student Lounge.
