Sir Nelson Mandela? Make it happen Lady

Dear Queen Elizabeth II,

Congratulations on your 100th birthday or whatever your age is. We are all getting older, but you remain forever young. I just have one major question, why hasn't the late great African icon Nelson Mandela been awared a knighthood?

This is a man that gave up his freedom and most of his productive life to fighting the oppression of his people by white people, in his own country. During his time in prison, you did nothing to help get him released. He finally gets released from prison, runs for President, wins and unites. Then he does something very UnAfrican.....he does one term in office and hands over.

It has been years since his passing and still no knighthood. Does he have to be an old English, Welsh or Scottish actor or musician to be knighted??. Even David Beckham is begging for a knighthood. Please do the right thing, Sir Nelson Mandela has to happen.

Yours Sincerely,

Avo Bode and other African Diasporians
