Nelson Mandela, the revered icon of the anti-apartheid struggle and one of the towering political figures of the 20th century, has died aged 95. He passed away at his home in Houghton on Thursday night.

Mandela was once the world’s most famous political prisoner. He was elected South Africa’s first black president after spending 27 years prison, and led South Africa from apartheid to democracy.

His charisma, generosity of spirit, and an unwavering commitment to the well-being of his fellow humans, earned him love and acclaim across the globe.

It also earned him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993.

The nation mourns his passing.
