South Africa: Mandela Funeral in Qunu

Former president Nelson Mandela will be laid to rest at Qunu in the Eastern Cape on December 15, President Jacob Zuma said on Friday.

"We should all work together to organise the most befitting funeral for this outstanding son of our country and the father of our young nation," he told reporters in Johannesburg.

He said Sunday, December 8, would be a national day of prayer and reflection.

"The official memorial service will be held on 10 December, at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg."

Between December 11 and 13, Mandela's remains would lie in state at the Union Buildings, in Pretoria.

"[This is] where he served as the first president of this young democracy," Zuma said.

"During these days, official memorial services will be held in all provinces and regions."

Zuma thanked all South Africans for "the dignified manner in which they have respected and responded to the loss of this monumental icon".

"[Mandela was] a symbol of reconciliation, unity, love, human rights and justice in our country and in the world," he said.
