Sam. F. Owori: A jolly good fellow

Sam Frobisher Owori, a man of great humility and integrity, died on July 13th, aged 76. He achieved more moral capital, most people just dream of.

No one quite believed the late evening news that Sam was gone! Where, we all asked. It just wasn’t adding up: death as a result of surgery on the left leg in a US hospital! I too, refuted. It cannot be true. He had just said good bye. He had done so several times that it became normal. He always returned as promised. That was Samuel Frobisher Owori – very calm, yet firm and decisive.

Nelson Mandela (1918 – 2013): Your legacy lives on

He served jail for 27 years.

Upon his release, he became president. He served only one (1) term. If he so wished, he would have died as President of the richest country in Africa, South Africa.

He chose otherwise. He stepped aside from the Presidency at the time everyone wanted him to be the President.

Despite the suffering he had gone through in jail, he never used the state machinery at his disposal to revenge anyone.

Instead, he asked for forgiveness.

Very few men can do that. And Nelson Mandela’s personal credo is special. Proud that our lifetime has had a man like that.

Rest in […] Read more
