Ahmed Kathrada writes : “Mandela may have been a popular leader, but his agenda was never driven by populism. He scrupulously ensured that all his utterances and actions as President of the ANC and as the first President of the new non-racial, non-sexist, democratic South Africa were consistent with the Constitution and policies and activities of the party and government. During his tenure as President, Mandela set numerous landmark precedents, respecting and complying with the rule of law” External link

Ahmed Kathrada writes ( about Nelson Mandela ) : “It takes a special type of leader to admit to his faults, and admitting to not doing enough to combat the epidemic during his time as president is exactly what Mandela did. But, it takes a remarkable individual to break-ranks, stare down dominant views, and face being unpopular amongst ‘one’s own’” External link

Ahmed Kathrada said : “I had the opportunity of accompanying him to Robben Island in September 1998. I was struck by both his easy-going nature and the great interest he paid to the history of the prison. In later years I was reminded of the trip on two specific occasions- when Raul Castro and Barack Obama shook hands at the funeral of Fidel’s contemporary Nelson Mandela; and, when I accompanied the recently released Cuban Five on a similar tour of the island,” “Castro came from a generation of leaders who envisioned a more equitable society, based on mutual co-operation, especially between developing nations. His popularity in South Africa was undeniable. It was after all, Castro who received the loudest applause from the audience at the Union Buildings in 1994 as Mandela was sworn in as president. The only other world leader to have come close to receiving the welcome that Castro did was the Palestinian icon Yasser Arafat” External link

Ahmed Kathrada said ( about Nelson Mandela ) : “As Mandela walked out of prison with the ‘Amandla’ salute, we knew that the values of non-racialism and democracy were triumphant over apartheid. It is, however, disheartening and of great concern to me, that 25 years on, we still see blatant acts of racism being perpetrated. We have made significant progress since 1994, but racism still lurks under the surface,” “I read the newspapers daily, and I am perturbed at the reports of racism, especially at places of learning. Young people are the future of this country, and it worries me when they are being separated in classrooms based on race, or when one hears that race may have played a role in the recent Northern Cape school abuse case. One hopes that such incidents are isolated. We need to pay more attention to youth development so that young people can become agents of non-racialism” External link
