A MyCapeTown selected video about Vergelegen wine estate:
U-S President Bill Clinton praised South African President Nelson Mandela at a state dinner on Friday night for emerging from 27 years imprisonment “unbroken”.
Mandela hosted the dinner for Clinton at the 300-year-old Vergelegen wine estate.
Clinton’s historic visit to South Africa made history of another kind on Friday when the Afrikaans-language newspaper Beeld – in Clinton’s honour – published its first-ever editorial in English.
“Mr President, you will understand that at my age I can afford to be honoured. I will be so brutally frank as to prejudice your case because I that you, like myself are not saddled with the misfortune of having to campaign for another term.”

“When we toured Robbin Island, I was reminded again that though you were locked in prison for a long time, you opened others minds and hearts, you helped to educate your fellow inmates, you kindled the flame of humanity in your prayers, you planted a garden in the courtyard of Robbin Island because of your faith in renewal. I can’t imagine anyone I would rather receive an order of good hope from than you.”
