SOUTH AFRICANS MOURN AND CELEBRATE THE LIFE OF NELSON ROLIHLAHLA MANDELA

On the day of Nelson Mandela’s funeral, Sunday December 15, 2013, South Africans of all walks of life, young and old, rich and poor, and of every colour gathered like pilgrims at the Nelson Mandela Capture Site outside Howick in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands to lay wreaths of flowers at the foot of the sculpture. Many stood in silence contemplating the loss of a man who became a father to the whole nation, a man who in the words of President Zuma “more than any other, came to embody their sense of a common nationhood.”

For South Africans in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa’s most populous province lying on the east coast of the country, the Nelson Mandela Capture Site was the obvious place to visit in bidding farewell to the man whose singular vision of a united South Africa which belongs to all who live in it forged a new nation overcoming the deep divisions in the society created by apartheid and centuries of colonial domination. The Capture Site marks the place where Nelson Mandela was captured on August 5, 1962 beginning 27 years of imprisonment at the hands of the apartheid regime.

In this picture Gita Desai and her grandson Nishal Ranchod pause before the mound of flowers at the foot of the Sculpture. Desai is a South African who has been living in Tampa, Florida, USA for decades. She happened to be visiting her daughter in South Africa at the time of Mandela’s death and expressed her great gratitude to be able to be present in the country at the time, participating in the mourning and celebration of his life.
