2008-07-18: Birthday message for Madiba from the mayor of Joburg

MADIBA'S inclusive humanity and his caring for the poor of the poorest is a true inspiration.  Madiba is a lodestar that inspires us as we strive to build a World Class African City for all.

Congratulations TATA on your 90th birthday.  You are our City's most revered citizen.  Your struggle to bring justice to all in South Africa has taught us that nothing in life is impossible.

On behalf of the City of Johannesburg's citizens and residents, we wish you good health.  We take this opportunity to assure you that nothing will stop us from doing everything to realize a truly caring and inclusive society.
