Graca says goodbye Madiba

Nelson Mandela’s coffin arrived at the Union Buildings on Wednesday morning after a solemn procession through the streets of Pretoria, with his family and world leaders due to be the first to pay their final respects.

Mandela’s widow Graca Machel and his ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela were also there.

Mandela died at his Houghton home on Thursday at the age of 95. Earlier this year, he spent a lengthy spell in hospital in Pretoria while well-wishers kept up a constant vigil outside the clinic gates.

He will be buried in his boyhood village of Qunu in the Eastern Cape on Sunday.
