  • Condolences at the passing of Nelson Mandela

    06/12/13

    The Commonwealth Foundation offers its condolences to the people and Government of South Africa at the passing of Nelson Mandela.

    In his death as much as during his life he has united us as an enduring symbol of justice, dignity and magnanimity.

    At this time we are reminded of his words: "The Commonwealth makes the world safe for diversity." This remains an aspiration as much as it was an observation. This moment is an opportunity for us to reflect on that and re-dedicate ourselves to its pursuit.
