Former South African President Thabo Mbeki was a worthy successor to Nelson Mandela and certainly surpassed “Madiba” in at least one respect: political oratory. Mbeki, while he was still vice president, pulled out all the stops on 8 May 1996, on the occasion of the passing of the new Constitution of South Africa when he gave his famous “I am an Africa” speech. No one ever had a better job audition.
Here for your viewing pleasure, is the speech in full.
So, is this the greatest Mbeki speech or simply the greatest speech ever given.
