We extend our sincerest condolence on the passing of our beloved Mother of the Nation.
She has left a magnificent imprint on the pages of our history. Her dedication to freedom, justice and peace for South Africa and her energetic efforts to achieve these ends places her beside the greatest in our country and the world.
We take solace in knowing that her sacrifices exceeded all measures of selflessness and devotion to her people. We honour her not only as a guardian of our freedom but also as an embodiment of a true spirit of service to a cause greater than ourselves.
May God give the Mandela and Madikizela families strength and courage in this hour of bereavement.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families.
