Nelson Mandela, World Humanitarian, Dies at 95

Posted By on Thu, Dec 5, 2013 at 3:31 PM

Nelson Mandela, world humanitarian and former South African President, has died. The news came from South African President Jacob Zuma during a press conference late Thursday. 
"He is now resting. He is now at peace," Zuma said.

"Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father."

"What made Nelson Mandela great was precisely what made him human," the president said in his late-night address. "We saw in him what we seek in ourselves."
The revolutionary died peacefully in his home in the Johannesburg suburb of Houghton. He was 95.
