Nelson Mandela A Great Legend Has Passed On

Nelson Mandela, one of the greatest leaders of modern times, passed away Thursday 5 December 2013 at his home in Johannesburg. He was 95.

South African President Jacob Zuma announced that Mandela, "the founding president of our democratic nation, has departed," adding that he "passed on peacefully in the presence of his family at 8:50PM."

Mandela will be accorded a state funeral, Zuma said, and national flags will be lowered to half-mast.

The US president Barack Obama in his tribute to Nelson Mandela, said Mandela no longer belongs to us but to the ages.

I'm watching the documented history of the legend on TV...rest in peace Mandela!
