*3) At age 95, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela’s death shook the world.
South Africa’s first elected president who was incarcerated by the apartheid regime for 27 years, was given a befitting memorial and funeral in Qunu, where he was buried.
Mandela died December 5 at his home in Houghton. His memorial service which was held at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg was attended by World leaders and celebrities.
