Johannesburg, December 9 (RHC)-- South Africa has begun a week of remembrance for Nelson Mandela, who died last week at the age of 95. A memorial service is being planned for tomorrow, Tuesday, at a soccer stadium in Soweto.
On Sunday, South Africans held a day of prayer for Mandela in congregations across the country. The Archbishop Desmond Tutu paid tribute in Cape Town: "We are relieved that his suffering is over, but our relief is drowned in our grief. We pray that he will rest in peace and rise in glory. People cared about Madiba, loved him because of his courage and convictions."
The commemorations will end with Mandela’s burial Sunday in his home village of Qunu. Messages of condolences for the renowned anti-apartheid and anti-imperialist fighter continue to come in from around the world.
