UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has asked everyone to speak out against hate and stand up for human rights to honour the the legacy of Nelson Mandela.

The UN chief made the statement on the occasion of Nelson Mandela International Day on Monday, said a press release.

He said Nelson Mandela was a healer of communities and a mentor to generations.

“He remains a moral compass and reference to us all. Madiba walked the path to freedom and dignity with steely determination – and with compassion and love,” he added. 

Guterres said: “Our world today is marred by war, overwhelmed by emergencies, blighted by racism, discrimination, poverty, and inequalities and threatened by climate disaster. Let us find hope in Nelson Mandela’s example and inspiration in his vision.”

He urged everyone to embrace common humanity – rich in diversity, equal in dignity, united in solidarity.
