Those who knew Mandla personally have described him as a “humble and kind person” who was always willing to help.

While the positive words paint a clear picture of  Mandla these pictures with his family are perhaps the best description of the man he was.

Then the thugs have the balls to take Mandla's shoes after killing him. Look at this pic and see that you have taken a Father from a child, a husband from a wife, a son from his parents. The world is too much with us. #RIPMandlaHlatshwayo
