Presidents Dinner 2017

Chris Lubbe

Chris Lubbe’s life changing experiences at "the University of Nelson Mandela" can’t help but leave an indelible mark on you!

 What a highly thought provoking presentation of his story with light hearted interludes which clearly captured the complete attention of all those in the Cromwell room at Donnington Valley and further made my Presidents Dinner one that I personally shall always remember.

 Chris is a man with a very moving story. His experience of abuse in the apartheid regime set him up on a collision course with that regime and eventually he became Nelson Mandela’s body guard. He is clearly a very special man and his story demonstrates the resilience of the human spirit and is a tribute to the many thousands of South Africans who have lost their lives in the pursuit of freedom.

We heard a moving personal account of the dreadful and shameful period of apartheid and then subsequently Chris’s inspirational path to finally follow the power of forgiveness.

 What a spell binding story, Chris, please continue to spread the word!
