RIP Nelson Mandela

For the past several months, news about the failing health of the icon of South Africa's struggle for freedom and equality brought Nelson Mandela's impressive life to the centre of attention once again. Last night, the former president of the Republic of South Africa passed away in Johannesburg, aged 95.

Nelson Mandela's struggle for equality, freedom and peace resonate throughout the world and will forever be remembered. His fighting spirit, humanity and conviction in doing the right thing have made an impact like few before him and at Infobip, we're proud to be among the many that have been inspired by his life.

Losing Nelson Mandela has even more significance for us as a company so steeped in the history and the beauty of Africa, especially for Infobippers from our African headquarters in Johannesburg. To Nelson Mandela's family, the people of South Africa, and everyone around the world who has been touched by this great man, we offer our sincerest condolences. Madiba, you will never be forgotten.
