The Life and Legacy of Nelson Mandela

25 February 2019

Nelson Mandela almost single handedly saved what was possibly the most divided nation on earth from destroying itself in what would have been a disastrous civil war, through forgiveness and reconciliation, with no bloodshed, revenge or recriminations.

The Reverend Colin Chambers looks at aspects of his remarkable life and legacy, from his humble birth to his state funeral.

Colin Chambers spent a year in the South African Navy after school, before attending Rhodes University where he qualified as a Special Needs Primary School teacher, while continuing in the SA Navy Reserve.  He was called up for Naval service before and during the Angolan Civil War and joined the SA Navy permanently, becoming a Lieutenant Commander.  Colin Chambers wanted to become a Chaplain in the Navy, but because there was no vacancy at the time, he became a Prison Chaplain at Pollsmoor and Robben Island Prisons, where he became Chaplain to Nelson Mandela and others, whilst at the time being minister of a local Church in Cape Town.
