Mandela 1918 - 2013

I was interviewed late last evening by CNBC about Nelson Mandela's death -- what it  means for South Africa, and the rest of Africa.

I offered my two cents -- but it's tough to describe his legacy, his accomplishments -- he was a hero, courageous, patient, and strong. He was a mentor -- and the glue that united blacks and whites in South Africa. He was a model for all African leaders, all leaders everywhere, and his legacy will forever be felt. South Africa will continue with the democracy he founded, and the institutions he forged with his ability to bring people together during the reconciliation process.

Here at Nile Capital, we shall deeply miss Madiba!

( For the full interview and my comments, check back. We'll post it when available.)
