Mugabe arrives for Mandela memorial service

10 December 2013, 10:47

Cape Town – Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe has arrived in South Africa for the memorial service of former SA president and struggle icon Nelson Mandela.

Mugabe who is accompanied by his wife Grace and two of their children arrived last night and was welcomed at Waterkloof Airbase by Ambassador to South Africa Cde Phelekezela Mphoko, a Herald report said.

Mandela died on Thursday at his home in Houghton, Johannesburg. He was 95.

Mugabe described Mandela as “the greatest icon of African liberation".

Ties between Zimbabwe and South Africa run "long and deep" and after independence in 1980, Zimbabwe hosted South African liberation fighters and supported its struggle against apartheid.

Friends, colleagues, comrades and family of Nelson Mandela are invited to share their memories and tributes, and to light a candle for him, on his profile at Remembered.co.za.
