Unforgettable! Rico Golez visits Nelson Mandela’s house in South Africa
Parañaque City Vice Mayor Rico Golez had the experience of a lifetime when he visited the home of the late South African President Nelson Mandela in Soweto, South Africa.
Golez shared a photo of him beside Mandela’s portrait in the house on Facebook.
The vice mayor said he was “truly honored and humbled” to see the house of Mandela, who was also a Nobel Peace Prize winner.
“The man was a true icon of democracy, social justice and the 20th century…. he had humble beginnings,” he said.
Golez said he was inspired by the visit to Mandela’s house because he got to know more about the late democracy icon and how he changed South Africa.
South Africa and the world is in a better place because of him,” he said.
