Nelson Mandela dinner
Nelson Mandela along with the world’s most loved celebs have broken silence on Mugabe’s regime at Mandela’s party.
The fundraising dinned welcomed his close friends: world famous socialites as well as human rights activists. Among the guests there were big names like Oprah Winfrey, Nicole Scherzinger, Uma Thurman and many others.
But on a short address, Zimbabwe merited only a brief mention in a list of the world’s ills.
For the speech Nelson Mandela said:
The world remains beset by so much human suffering, poverty and deprivation. It is in your hands to make our world a better one for all, especially the poor, vulnerable and marginalized.
We look back at much human progress, but we sadly note so much failing as well.
In our time we spoke out on the situation in Palestine and Israel, and that conflict continues unabated. We warned against the invasion of Iraq, and observe the terrible suffering in that country.
We watch with sadness the continuing tragedy in Darfur. Nearer to home we had seen the outbreak of violence against fellow Africans in our own country and the tragic failure of leadership in our neighboring Zimbabwe.
It is within this context that we should also see the plight of those affected by HIV and Aids. It is now in the hands of your generations to help rid the world of such suffering.”
Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith were just two boldfaced names to fete the prebirthday dinner party held in Hyde Park. Also on the list: Forest Whitaker, Kim Cattrall, Leona Lewis and Denzel Washington.
Amy Winehouse was supposed to attend as well; unfortunately she’s been hospitalized and is still advised to stay in bed. For the concert though, she will perform at her first post-hospitalized performance.
Another troubled girl Naomi Campbell attended the event. She looked oh-so-preety, and most important, she smiled.
