Mandela Mania


Nigerians pay respect to “Madiba” their own way. His name is on everyone’s lips and his face on every newspaper front page and every tv-screen. We have talked to Kenneth Emyenghemoe about the great South African leader while he waits for his car to be washed at Mandela Car Wash.

    May we all carry a spark of his great light.

  6. We often ask, ‘What can one person do?’ Mandela is the answer. We need know nothing else.

    Great photo, Otto. A car wash named after the great man? I’m impressed the car is hand washed. Over here it’s a rarity. Expensive too!

    I still haven’t heard if any respects were paid by the Nigerian government or the Zimbabwean regime.

  9. A simple picture that speaks volumes. The POV makes it really interesting. Great job as usual, Otto:)
