Today is a huge day here in South Africa as hundreds of thousands of citizens from every section of society join together to remember and celebrate the life of Tata Madiba.
These supporters will also be joined by an unprecedented gathering of world leaders, many of whom will be left totally bewildered and gobsmacked by the tributes that pour in to honour Madiba and his legacy.
To each of those leaders I would simply like to say this: If you want to be treated with the reverence and love that Madiba was, if you aspire to be seen as a hero of the people, if you want to be hailed as the father of a nation, may I suggest that you start with 27 years in prison.
Another stunning flower in our garden. No idea what this is but it's simply gorgeous!
