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

The son of the late Oliver Tambo has spoken of his father's special relationship with former president Nelson Mandela.

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.

When your grow up in a house where your uncles and aunt are all revolutionaries, whether that be 'Uncle Nelson', or Joe Slovo or whoever it was...your love for a person is also mixed with adoration.

He and my father were very close, not just in terms of their friendship, but also in terms of their political attitudes.
