Today Mandela said South Africa is divided between the haves and the have-nots. He said he's fortunate to have made it to 90 living in South Africa. One child: Mandela is one of the most respected people in South Africa and the world. Another: I wouldn't be surprised if he's like a saint. Another child: before 1994, people couldn't talk about him and now everyone has rights. Another child: Mandela only speaks for other people.
