Brilliant Flash mob for Mandela

THE Soweto Gospel Choir performed for about three minutes in a Woolworths store as a tribute the Nelson Mandela.

Between the food aisles, choir members dressed as workers began singing Johnny Clegg’s Asimbonanga.

  1. I’ve always enjoyed those deep rich voices. Thanks for sharing. Imagine what those British soldiers must have heard when 8,000 of them began chanting war songs before they attacked them. Chilling. Now they sing songs of love. Interesting country… from Chaka Zulu to Nelson Mandela.


  2. This short poem was a favourite of Nelson Mandela and no doubt it was a source of strength during his time of incarceration.

    William Ernest Henley

    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the horror of the shade,
    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds and shall find me unafraid.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate:
    I am the captain of my soul.


    • Well there y’go!
      A favourite of Mandela’s, hey?
      Also one of my favourites, which I’ve posted here from time to time.
      It was also a favourite of Timothy McVeigh’s, who was reciting it as they were shoving the lethal injection into him.

      Great minds thinking alike, perhaps? 🙂
