The world joined the family and country of former South African president Nelson Mandela on Sunday Dec. 15 to bid him one final farewell before his burial in his home village of Qunu, South Africa. Take a look at scenes from Mandela’s funeral.
Former president Nelson Mandela, now 93 and frail, forsook the plush suburbs of Johannesburg four months ago in favor of his ancestral Qunu, a small village in a narrow valley in the Eastern Cape province of the Republic of South Africa. And his neighbors believe he is there to stay.
Tribal King Zwelibanzi Dalindyebo removed Mandla Mandela, a grandson of Nelson Mandela, from his post of traditional authority after it was revealed Mandla had moved the bodies of three of the leader's children to his village of Mvezo.
