Prime Minister Amma Mbabazi has paid tribute to the fallen former South African president Nelson Mandela.

“I was privileged to know him and he was a true inspiration. I will always cherish his memory. Mandela was one of the greatest leaders in the world. He changed the world. My sympathies to the family and to the world for this loss,” Mbabazi twitted.  

The Premier described Mandela as a true hero for all freedom loving people. He said Mandela will always be remembered for what he gave the world - human dignity.

The death of South Africa's liberation leader Nelson Mandela has unleashed a heartfelt chorus of awed respect from across the worlds of politics, religion, sport and culture.


The late Nelson Mandela


Statesmen, resistance leaders, Nobel laureates and prisoners of conscience have died before, but never has one man united such global unity in honoring his passing.

Foreshadowing the guest list of what will surely be the most important funeral of recent decades, world leaders queued up to issue solemn tributes to the 95-year-old anti-apartheid hero who became South Africa's first democratic president.
