HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NELSON MANDELA!
The father of Africa Liberation struggle, Mr. Nelson Mandela turned 90years recently. What a milestone! Ironically the British which colluded with then apartheid South Africa to steal the prime 27years of this man's life, by putting him away in Robin Island prison for his liberation struggles, is today celebrating his 90th birthday. Even the United States of America declared him a terrorist and placed him and his fellow ANC compatriots on their terrorist watch list which they just recently lifted to mark his 90th birthday. (see comment). They never gave him a chance but the rest is now history as they turned Nelson Mandela into a world hero! Nelson Mandela himself has forgiven all the apartheid operators, so Icheoku will follow suit and look at the glass half full instead. Icheoku therefore wishes Nelson Mandela the best of his golden years and pray that the African continent can raise some more Mandelas. Happy birthday, Nelson Mandela! See who is now laughing at the ignoble of the apartheid era! Maybe a case of he who laughs last? Grandpa of Africa, Icheoku appreciates you dearly. Happy 90th!
