South Africa’s first democratically elected President and Apartheid hero, Nelson Mandela died today at the age of 95.
Current President Jacob Zuma announced his death in a National broadcast saying Africa’s pre-eminent son is “now rested, he is now at peace…. our Nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father. Although we knew that this day will come but nothing can diminish the sense of a profound and enduring loss….”
Mandela was said to have passed on peacefully in the company of his family.
