Joyce Barrie & Friends on Nelson Mandela

This Sunday, December 15, 2013 former South African President Nelson Mandela will be laid to rest in his home town village Qunu (Pretoria).

Last Sunday his memorial was for leaders of the world but now he returns back to the people who knew him first. President Mandela was from the people, for the people and of the people. So its very fitting that he returns home to be buried humbly with his people.

We had the pleasure of speaking with Joyce E. Barrie the other day about her radio broadcast on December 06, 2013 of President Nelson Mandela with people who knew him. Pastor Oscar Smith who was Mandela’s personal chauffeur and others.

Joyce E. Barrie is host of Joyce Barrie and Friends and is the founder of  President of Joymarc Enterprises Inc.

Be one of the first to listen to Joyce E. Barrie foremost and candid interview with every day people who knew President Nelson Mandela as one of the people.
