Tributes For Nelson Mandela Who Died Last Night

TRIBUTES FOR NELSON MANDELA WHO DIED LAST NIGHT

The former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at the age of 95.

He passed away peacefully at his home in Johannesburg at around ten to nine local time last night, surrounded by family.

The anti Apartheid leader’s health has been suffering in recent months – after he contracted a lung infection in June.

In a live televised address, the country’s current President Jacob Zuma said Mr. Mandela will be receiving a full state funeral.

He’s ordered all flags in South Africa to fly at half mast and they will remain like that until after Nelson Mandela’s funeral.
