Media and mourners outside Mandela home


Crowds gathered outside the Johannesburg home of Nelson Mandela on the night of his death on December 5. The former South African president and anti-apartheid icon was 95 years old. “He passed on peacefully in the company of his family … He is now resting,” South African President Jacob Zuma said, announcing Mandela’s death. “Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father.” Credit: Instagram/Ngobeni007
