Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni



President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has joined thousands of other world leaders in paying tribute to the deceased former South African president and world iconic leader, nelson Mandela.

Mandela passed away on Thursday night at his home in Johannesburg after a prolonged lung infection.

Museveni’s message:

"Salutations to the memory and work of Mzee Mandela"

Your Excellency Jacob Zuma,

I heard the sad news of Mzee Mandela's death this morning. I am now writing to convey my condolences to the family of Mzee Mandela, to ANC and to the People of South Africa.

Mzee Mandela, along with his colleagues Albert Luthuli, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Oliver Thambo etc, gave almost all their adult lives to the struggle for the freedom of South Africa and its people.

They acquitted themselves admirably by doing what they ought to have done.

It is us now and those who are younger than us to consolidate the work of those elders and ensure that Africa is immunised against future marginalisation and re-colonisation.

Salutations to the memory and work of Mzee Mandela.

Signed:
Yoweri Kaguta Museveni
President of the Republic of Uganda
6th December 2013
