Dear Friends

Today is a sad day of the World. 65 years after Mahatma Gandhi left us,
people across the world are mourning the death of a man who fought
ceaselessly for the emancipation of South Africa and became the country's
first black president. Throughout his 95 years he has spoken words that ring
true for many of us - about equality, about compassion, and about creating

We have lost a hero who fought for the rights of all people, and touched
millions in the process. We will miss him, but we will not forget his
incredible work and the legacy he left behind.

Nelson Mandela leaves a legacy of equality, democracy and education. It is
incredibly important that all of us take his passing not as an end of an
age, but as a renewed determination to carry on his work every day.

Not only South Africa is saddened by this loss but the whole world including
Mauritius, which has very close ties with South Africa.

Our sincere condolences and deepest sympathy to the Mandela family and whole
South African Nation. May the departed soul rest in peace. -

Best regards

Dave Kissoondoyal
