Mandela Special Event Station to be On the Air
To commemorate the life of the late former president of South Africa Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, the South African Radio League (SARL) is sponsoring special event station ZS9MADIBA for a period of 30 days. “Madiba” is Mandela’s Xhosa tribal name. He served as South Africa’s first black president from 1994 until 1998. Mandela died December 5 at the age of 95.
“The South African Radio League, its council and members join the world in mourning the loss of South Africa's greatest statesman, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela,” the SARL said on its website. “Let us continue to remember and be encourged by the so many positive things for which he stood. While we mourn his passing, we celebrate his life and the lessons he taught us and the world.” — Thanks to The Daily DX; SARL
