UN Pays Tribute to President Mandela

The United Nations secretary-general describes Mandela as ‘a giant for justice’

The United Nations (UN) secretary-general, Ban Ki-Moon, has described former president, Nelson Mandela as ‘a giant for justice’ whose ‘selfless struggle for human dignity, equality and freedom’ inspired many people around the world.

Ban told reporters soon after Mandela’s death was announced by President Jacob Zuma that, "No one did more in our time to advance the values and aspirations of the United Nations."

He says he was deeply touched when he met Mandela in February 2009, adding that, “When I thanked him for his life's work, he insisted the credit belonged to others."
