Nelson Mandela speaks at the Make Poverty History rally, Trafalgar Square

This afternoon, I went to see Nelson Mandela addresses the masses at Trafalgar Square in aid of the Make Poverty History campaign. It truly is amasing that a man of fully 86 years still has the vigour, desire and will to make a difference in world politics and aid campaigns. Standing at Trafalgar square today, straining my legs and neck to catch a mere glimpse of the enigma, I was struck by how well loved and supported he is. Before my esteemed former president got up to speak, Bob Geldof had a few words today, but in no way did he have half the gravity of words or character of a man several decades his senior. The crowds turned out for one man today and he delivered. His speech was met with applause at every juncture and it is with sincere pride that I write about this day and this campaign.
