Khalo Matabane asks global thinkers, Apartheid-victims and Mandela’s entourage to classify Nelson Mandela’s achievements, thereby providing a multi-facetted approach to his myth. Aged 94, the looming high possibility of Mandela’s death offers the opportunity to reflect upon his legacy beyond sainthood. Amongst others, Matabane interviews the Dalai Lama, Henry Kissinger, Colin Powell, Peter Hain, Albie Sachs and Ariel Dorfman. Critique may just as well be pronounced as approval and veneration. How do they interpret his message of freedom, forgiveness and reconciliation in the world of today?
