Nana Ngobese's Tribute
In October 1990, I had a great moment with Madiba in Groutville where he had gone to visit my grandmother, Nokukhanya Luthuli. Of course, I took a picture with him asking him a question he only answered with a smile. I asked him: "What is like to feel like and act like Luthuli (grandfatherly, I meant)". My question came from my understanding (at the time) that Mandela thought Luthuli was being a 'softie' on Whites when he was advocating for a negotiated settlement between the Africans and the Whites in the '60s. Was he not doing the same 30 years later on? He only gave me a brilliant smile (maybe to figure it all out by myself). What a man!!!!
