Premier Soccer League Chairman Dr Irvin Khoza has paid tribute to former President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela.

The 95-year old Nelson ‘Tata’ Mandela was declared dead last night and the Premier Soccer League chairman paid tribute by saying Madiba delivered our nation from a divisive and self-destructed course of history.

Dr Irvin Khoza said on Friday morning. “Madiba carried a vision guided by an inner voice to deliver our nation from a divisive and self-destructed course of history.

“He will live forever as a motivating force for those that seek and strive for peace and human dignity.

He added. “Ours is a special generation that saw Madiba in action. I am personally gratified and particularly privileged to have a known this good man , an agent of change, a bearer of hope, and a representation of all that is good in humanity.
