MK Dov Lipman (Yesh Atid) will be on the Israeli delegation to the funeral of Nelson Mandela. MK Lipman reflected, "The world has lost one of its most prominent leaders. History will remember Madiba as a noble man who fought for freedom, equality, justice, reconciliation and peace. He reminds us that one man can change the world, and through patience and passion make it a better place. His contribution to mankind will last forever. My condolences to his family and the South African people. I will honorably represent Israel. May his memory be blessed."
