Asimbonanga Flash Mob – Touching Tribute to Nelson Mandela

If you haven’t seen this (Nelson Mandela) tribute yet, it’s worth a look.  A local supermarket collaborated with the Soweto Gospel Choir to organize a flash mob at a Parkview store in Johannesburg.  The flash mob (posing as workers and shoppers) spontaneously join together and sing the lyrics of “Asimbonanga” (We have not seen him).  This powerful song was written as a call for Nelson Mandela’s freedom during his 27 year imprisonment.  We hope you enjoy it!

“If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy.  Then he becomes your partner.” – Nelson Mandela

“Lead from the back and let others believe they are in front” – Nelson Mandela

“Mandela served over 27 years in prison, initially on Robben Island, and later in Pollsmoor Prison and Victor Verster Prison. An international campaign lobbied for his release. He was released in 1990, during a time of escalating civil strife. Mandela joined negotiations with President F. W. de Klerk to abolish apartheid and establish multiracial elections in 1994, in which he led the ANC to victory and became South Africa’s first black president.” (Wikipedia on Nelson Mandela)
