Mandela was inspiring. His complex character encompassed a set of contradictions that few people are able to exhibit. He was an ideologue but also a pragmatist, a dreamer but also a shrewd politician, a warrior but also a peacemaker. He brought the worst of enemies together and put them on a course to recreate South Africa.
"Hate unites all sorts of people, and in this region sworn enemies were united in their hatred towards Mandela or what he represented."Abdullah Hamidaddin
Outside South Africa there also those who hate him, disrespect him, and most of all loath the almost universal and unanimous adoration for Mandela’s character and the values he stood for. However, those are not individuals that suffered due to the corruption and failed polices of the ANC. Those are individuals who hate him for what he stands for. They hate him because they hate peace, forgiveness, reconciliation, and justice.
