President Jacob Zuma has led the country and the world in wishing Nelson Mandela a happy 93rd birthday.

With heartfelt messages streaming in from across the globe, Zuma has reminded South Africans that to celebrate Madiba’s life, each one of us should pledge to make the country a better place in every possible way.

Zuma says from the moment Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela strode out of prison on the 11th of February 1990, everyone knew that South Africa would be a different place. He adds that people across the world remain mesmerized by his wisdom, humility, patriotism and his capacity to forgive.
