Former South Africa President Nelson Mandela had been a peace-lover through out his life, who waged relentless struggle to lead the Africans from darkness to the light, District Collector K. Sasidhar has said.

Paying rich tributes to Mandela, the Collector said the crusader of the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa had strived for equality and liberation of those who were subjected to discrimination for long. He was speaking at a meeting organised by the Kadapa District Peace Corps to pay tributes to Nelson Mandela at the Zion College of Physical Education. He garlanded Mandela’s portrait.

Madiba, as the leader was popularly called, never gave up his determination despite being imprisoned for 27 years, the Collector said and called upon the students and youth to draw inspiration from the life of the great leader. Corps secretary K. Rajarathnam Isaac said Mandela drew inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi and strived for establishing democracy in South Africa. The Collector went round a photo exhibition on the life of Mandela.
