Bill Gates's embattled Microsoft was highly praised on Thursday by none other than former president Nelson Mandela who said he is proud to be associated with the software giant.
"It is undoubtedly the flagship of the private sector inside and outside South Africa," Mandela said.
Mandela was touring Johannesburg creches and pre-schools to encourage private sector investment in development, an activity he has pursued tirelessly since his retirement in June.
