Video of the Day: Tribute to Nelson Mandela

The Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University's internationally acclaimed choir paid tribute to their namesake on his 94th birthday with their rendition of the song, “Asimbonanga.” The lyrics to the song by Johnny Clegg are listed below the video.

Asimbonanga  (we have not seen him) Asimbonang' umandela thina  (we have not seen Mandela) Laph'ekhona  (in the place where he is) Laph'ehleli khona  (in the place where he is kept)

A seagull wings across the sea Broken silence is what I dream Who has the words to close the distance Between you and me 
Asimbonang 'umfowethu thina (we have not seen our brother) Laph'ekhona (in the place where he is) Laph'wafela khona (in the place where he died) Hey wena (hey you!) Hey wena nawe (hey you and you as well) Siyofika nini la' siyakhona (when will we arrive at our destination)
