Dali Tambo remembers 'Uncle Nelson' ahead of the centenary of Madiba's birth

It's as South Africa, and the rest of the world, celebrates the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's birth this week.
Dali Tambo says unlike his friends growing up, his heroes were not pop stars or celebrities, but rather the struggle stalwarts fighting for freedom.
