As tributes continue to pour in for the late Former President Nelson Mandela several unions have shared their thoughts. 

The National Education Health and Allied Workers Union said the nation and the entire world has lost a visionary leader whose wisdom and courage was unmatched, and whose love for South Africa and its people knew no bounds. 

Nehawu Spokesperson Sizwe Pamla as working people we will forever be thankful to Tata Mdiba for his dedication to the eradication of institutional racism.

On the other hand the Food and Allied Workers Union has called on South Africans to accept that Mandela lived a full age and accomplished a lot in his life. From helping crush Apartheid and building a new nation into helping defeat injustices and engineering peace. 

FAWU’s General Secretary Katishi Masemola said we also celebrate his life. We hope that his legacy will live on.

Meanwhile the business community has also joined in with tributes with the cape Chamber of Commerce committing itself to further the vision of Nelson Mandela. 

The Chambers President Janine Myburgh said they will continue in its efforts to unite African business and to work towards a sustainable and competitive economy. 

“It is however a day to celebrate his life and what he did for our country and consequently business. He personified dignity, integrity, and respect the world has lost a great friend,” Myburgh added.
