President Michel Martelly pays tribute to the symbol of the anti-apartheid and Father of the democracy struggle in South Africa, Nelson Mandela aka "Madiba"

Here is a translation from French of a note from Haiti's National Palace:

President Martelly learned with great emotion the death of the symbol of the struggle against apartheid, Nelson Mandela, this Thursday, December 5, 2013.

President Martelly joined his voice to the people and Government of Haiti to pay tribute to this iconic politician who, by his keen sense of tolerance and selflessness has to endorse the great republican values in favor of democracy in South Africa.

"Mandela is not only the Father of Democracy in South Africa, he is the symbol of democracy. And like any symbol, he is not dead. He is present in all of us and guide us by his lifestyle, his courage and faith in the true struggle for gender equality, races and nations ", said the President Martelly has on behalf of the Republic of Haiti.

Our most sincere condolences go out to the family of former President Nelson Mandela (1994-1999), his friends and relatives, the people and the Government of South Africa in general.

What do you think about that?

Legrand Parisien Salvant Our history has given chances to Aristide, Preval and now Martelly to be the "Mandela" of Haiti, unfortunately they all failed. Poor Haiti.
