Nelson-Mandela’s-Top-Five-Contributions-to-Humanity

South Africa’s first black president, Nelson Mandela, has died. 

The NZ Herald reports:

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95.

South Africa’s president Jacob Zuma said: “He is now resting. He is now at peace. Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father.

“Our thoughts are with his friends, comrades and colleagues who fought alongside Mandiba.

“This is the moment of our deepest sorrow. Our nation has lost its greatest son. Yet what made Nelson Mandela great is precisely what made him human… In him we saw so much of ourselves. Fellow South Africans, Nelson Mandela brought us together and it is together that we will bid him farewell.”

Mandela will be given a state funeral, Zuma said.

He ordered all flags in South Africa to be lowered to half mast.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
