Isakson Statement on the Passing of Nelson Mandela

By   /   December 5, 2013  /   Comments

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today made the following statement regarding the passing of Former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela:

“The world lost a selfless champion of freedom, democracy and equality today. Nelson Mandela’s courage in the face of terrible injustice helped dismantle apartheid, and his determined leadership guided South Africa through a process of reconciliation that at one time seemed impossible. Mandela’s legacy will be one of dignity, forgiveness and a profound dedication to the principles that all free people hold dear. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and the people of South Africa.”
