A giant of Justice has just passed away. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela has been pronounced dead today by present president of South Africa Jacob Zuma. The South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and politician who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999 died in his home in Johannesburg around 8:50 this evening in the company of his family Dec. 5th. He was 95 years old. A state funeral would be held for Nelson Mandela, his body would be carried round South Africa for the citizens of the nation to share their last condolence and honour to the historian.
He achieved more than he could achieve than any man. He sacrificed his freedom for the freedom for others, his journey from a prisoner to a president has shown his humanity and dignity. May his soul rest in peace. Amen
