World Unites for Nelson Mandela’s Memorial

(Soweto) – Tens of thousands of South Africans converged in sorrow, celebration and pride at Soweto’s World Cup stadium, to sit side-by-side with presidents, priests and queens at a memorial service for unifying global icon Nelson Mandela.
Close to 100 world leaders were among 80,000 people expected to cram into the venue in Soweto, the crucible of Mandela’s anti-apartheid struggle, to bid farewell to a man whose life story earned uncommon universal respect. Despite the profound sense of national sorrow triggered by Mandela’s death last Thursday, the mood was upbeat, with people determined to celebrate the memory of one of the 20th century’s towering political figures.
