One of the world's greatest statesmen, anti-apartheid
activist and the first democratically elected president
of South Africa - President Nelson Mandela, 93, has
been honoured by his countrymen with his image on the
country's bank notes.
His face repaces designs featuring the "big five" safari
animals - Cape buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and
rhino. All five notes - 10, 20, 50, 100 and 200 rand
will now bear Mandela's face on the front.
What a way to honour him and thank God he's still alive
to see it!
