Prof Wole Soyinka’s On Nelson Mandela’s Death “The Soul Of Africa Has Departed”

Dec 6, 2013 – Prof Wole Soyinka’s On Nelson Mandela’s Death “The Soul Of Africa Has Departed”

Nigerian novelist Wole Soyinka has written a short but powerful tribute to late South African President Nelson Mandela who died last night at his home in Johannesburg at the age of 95.

Read what 79-year-old Soyinka wrote about the late icon:

“The soul of Africa has departed, and there is nothing miraculous left in the world.”

May his soul rest in perfect peace.

      You are very stupid. No one knows when the time will come. Soyinka might still be hale and hearty in the next 20 years…

    Chizzy baby&Bezo now listen&listen good. Death is the price every human being will pay. Mandela, Wole & Achebe are fortunate enough 2 enjoy longevity. Mandela achieved sth in life. D same goes 2 Achebe. Wole is not left out. What about u two? What hv u achieved? Yet u hv d gut 2 wish ur fellow human being death. May God hv mercy on u two.
