A-nation-should-not-be-judged-by-how-it-treats-its-highest-citizensThe staff of the Centre for Environmental Rights mourn the death of the first president of the democratic South Africa, and the father of our new South African nation. Our Constitution and our beloved Section 24 came into being under the leadership of this great stateman and visionary, and his words and spirit will live and inspire us forever as we work to realise those rights for all South Africans. Hamba kahle, Tata Mandela.
