President Jacob Zuma says South Africans will continue on the path set by Nelson Mandela and succeed in building the country Madiba dreamed of.
The funeral of former president Nelson Mandela has had its light moments, despite the sombre mood that characterised the funeral service in Qunu.
Chief Ngangomhlaba Matanzima says the behaviour of the people – who booed President Jacob Zuma at the Nelson Mandela’s memorial – should not be repeated.
AbaThembu king Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo joined mourners at the Mthatha airport despite earlier rumours that he might not attend his uncle, Nelson Mandela’s, funeral.
Former president Thabo Mbeki says the death of Nelson Mandela does not spell the end of national reconciliation.
The Gauteng ANC has asked for a meeting with the party’s national leadership over the booing of President Jacob Zuma by mourners at Nelson Mandela’s memorial yesterday.
The Eastern Cape cooperative governance and traditional affairs ministry has issued a guide to the customs of the Eastern Cape AbaThembu people, of which the late former president Nelson Mandela was a member, to explain how the mourning process is observed.
President Jacob Zuma got a mixed reception at the memorial service for former president Nelson Mandela.
Black rubbish bags were used as shelter from the rain at FNB Stadium ahead of Nelson Mandela’s memorial service.
In celebrating Nelson Mandela’s life, South Africa ought to ask whether the quality of leadership it has, does measure up to the task of transforming the country, says former president Thabo Mbeki.
South Africa’s new Auditor-General, Kimi Makwetu, has no plans to fill his predecessor’s shoes.
Both Graça Machel and Winnie Madikizela-Mandela are aware of the love, support and care extended to the family “in this hour of need”, family spokesperson retired Lieutenant-General Themba Matanzima has said.
