A Bob Dy­lan song ti­tle rings true to­day – “Death is not the end”.

Knock­ing on Heaven’s Door – RIP Tata.

RIP Madiba, one of the great­est hu­mans to have walked on this earth. – M Is­mail

A hero of hu­man­ity who made our na­tion an in­spi­ra­tion to the whole world. We love you Tata RIP.

We fully re­spect the fact that there will be no trad­ing on the Pa­rade tomorrow and on Mon­day due to the pass­ing of our beloved Madiba, but af­ter that why can’t traders work ev­ery­where else when it is busi­ness as usual? Madiba would not have let peo­ple go hun­gry be­cause they can’t trade on the Pa­rade. May God grant his fam­ily long life and peace in their hearts.

Tata, what is on the other end of the rain­bow? It’s not so nice here on this end. – LinX

Ja­cob Zuma needs a speech ther­a­pist and voice coach. The most im­por­tant, emo­tional and sad­dest an­nounce­ment he will ever have to make and he comes across as inar­tic­u­late.

Madiba. I am so sorry but there is no one that can fill your shoes. I know why, they are just too big. RIP. – Lavona Rolls

Saw pho­to­graph of Madiba’s house in Qunu in to­day’s Ar­gus. Plain and sim­ple with few build­ings. Not any­where near R200 mil­lion.There is a se­cu­rity fence around the prop­erty. A place of a man of in­tegrity.

Man­dela: RIP. You achieved so much. I just wish that this cur­rent bunch of jok­ers in gov­ern­ment would go back, sit down and re­ally lis­ten to the speech you made at the Rivo­nia trial, what your insight for a greater South Africa was. It’s just a great shame that they are sys­tem­at­i­cally de­stroy­ing ev­ery­thing.

How rude MTN is send­ing SMSes cash­ing in on Man­dela’s death.

Dis­ap­point­ing to get an SMS from MTN us­ing the pass­ing of Madiba as an ad­ver­tis­ing op­por­tu­nity. – JT

Tears are not only for the death of a great man, Madiba, but for what South Africa has be­come since he re­tired.

It will cer­tainly be im­pos­si­ble and highly un­likely to fol­low as well as up­hold and ful­fil the vi­sion and as­pi­ra­tions of the late Tata Madiba Nel­son Man­dela, while we have as a gov­ern­ment the type of ma­raud­ing leeches and cor­rupt blood-suck­ers who now oc­cupy the ANC.

Rest in peace away from this cor­rupt gov­ern­ment.

Thank you Pres­i­dent Obama for fly­ing the flag at the White House at half mast.

So our beloved states­man is fi­nally at rest and hope­fully at peace. Go well Madiba. But what re­mains to be seen: will his legacy and hopes for the na­tion be con­tin­ued, or will rev­o­lu­tion­ar­ies rise up for retri­bu­tion, or will we rise up as a na­tion for resti­tution for it is not what he cre­ated but what he ex­pected from ev­ery­one to pull to­gether, for if not, the chains of op­pres­sion that he broke will go down with him to the grave. I did not have the priv­i­lege of see­ing him pub­licly or face to face but I met his spirit and let that live in each of us. Rest in peace Madiba the son of South Africa and let Africa shine on you.– Garry

We thank our Heavenly Fa­ther for the many years he gave Nel­son Man­dela. Now he left us, for sure God will con­tinue to shape South Africa ac­cord­ing to his will. – A be­liever.

Nel­son Man­dela was a lawyer and fought for jus­tice. Ev­ery­thing he did was for South Africa. He is the fa­ther of the na­tion. I salute you Madiba.

Our great­est sor­row is who have we got left to re­spect?

Madiba did more than his bit, ‘tis a pity and a tragedy his com­pa­tri­ots turned it all into a night­mare.

A very sad day for South Africa and in­deed for the world. Sleep well my Madiba.

Nkosi sikelel’ iAfrika – Madiba showed the world that peace can be at­tained against all odds with­out con­flict even af­ter such a long time of op­pres­sion and strife. He is the great­est hu­man the world has ever known.

RIP Nel­son Man­dela. May the world con­tinue to fol­low in your foot­steps even af­ter your ab­sence. Thank you for unit­ing a na­tion.

My prayers and thoughts are with your fam­ily at this time. – Glo­rya Al­freds

My deep­est con­do­lences at this sad time on the pass­ing of our beloved Tata Madiba. – Ste­fan, Green Point

Hamba Kahle Madiba, may your dear soul rest in peace. You de­serve a well-earned rest. Thank you for tak­ing us out of the bondage of apartheid God bless your soul. – Dorothy, Re­treat

What a sad day for the world. Per­haps the right time for er­rant and cor­rupt South African politi­cians to re­mem­ber his legacy of love, for­give­ness, hon­esty, true lead­er­ship. For­ever lives his mem­ory. – Owen Si­mons, Laven­der Hill

You went qui­etly into the night Tata. Thank God for your life. Rest in peace. – Elaine

In Madiba’s mem­ory, all our peo­ple should try to live a bet­ter life.
