Nelson Mandela, one of the great figures of the 20th century, has died at the age of 95.
South African president Jacob Zuma announced the death of Mr Mandela this morning, who has been credited with preventing his country from descending into civil war in the post-apartheid era.
“Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father,” Mr Zuma said.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner served just one term as president before taking up a new role as a leading AIDS campaigner, before finally retiring from public life in 2004.
South African president Jacob Zuma earlier announced that Mr Mandela passed away peacefully at his Johannesburg home.

Miss Joyce, Could you please tell me the inquiry link for kidblog? I want to access it but I forgot your email adresss.
It has truley been a tragity by having Nelson Mandela pass away, He was a true insperation to me and was brave enough to fight for his culture. He was put into gaol for twenty seven years for a crime he didn’t commit, but no matter what he never gave up which is why he is an insperation to me and others from around the world. Nelson Mandela has a book that others can read about his life.
Long rest in peace Nelson Mandela.
I think it’s a lovely thing that Jakob Zuma did a lovely thing for Mr Nelson Mandela.
I say that because in the paragraph Jakob Zuma said “Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father,” and that is recognition for lovely Mr Mandela. My question is “Can Jakob Zuma be so kind – hearted and send the message across the world with lots of love?”
Rest in peace Mr Nelson Mandela.
I love you Nelson Mandela,
