Bishop T.D. Jakes Mourns Nelson Mandela: 'Essence Of A Servant Leader'

The world is mourning the loss of Nelson Mandela who died December 5 at 95. Condolences are pouring in across the nation, include one from Bishop T.D. Jakes.

Bishop T.D. Jakes has issued the following statement.

“I am deeply saddened to have lost such an enduring symbol of freedom and liberty; Nelson Mandela was an elder statesman who embodied the very essence of a servant-leader. History cannot contain the lasting impact of such an extraordinary life. Rather, his exceptionalism will live in the hearts and minds of those of us who were fortunate enough to have witnessed his greatness.  There are few words capable of encapsulating the measure of such a masterful life, except to impart this departing dispatch: “Well done Madiba, well done!”

Nelson Mandela has died.
