Kate Rooseboom's Tribute
I remember watching Nelson Mandela on the day of the inauguration. His expression was so solemn. I think that his face signified the profound significance of the day, and I recall feeling a deep sense of respect for him. I also remember Nelson Mandela being interviewed by Oprah Winfrey. I did not expect there to be such a contrast between the flashy, celebrity-style Oprah Winfrey and Nelson Mandela’s serious, modest manner. It seemed as though their realities were a million miles apart, and I felt strongly protective towards him. If Nelson Mandela symbolised all South Africans, then South Africans were people of substance!
