The former South African president and Nobel Peace Prize laureate died today in his Johannesburg home after a lengthy battle with illness. He was 95.

“The world says goodbye to a great man, a myth, a legend, a patrimony of Africa and of humanity,” Ortega said in a letter addressed to the National African Congress and South African President Jacob Zuma. “Nelson Mandela lived each day of his life struggling steadfastly for peace, fraternity and human dignity.”

Ortega added, “We know that his legacy will prevail, and that his life will continue to inspire those who believe that a better world is possible.”
