Mandela, who spent 27 years in prison after being convicted of treason, passed away on Thursday, December 5. The former president became a symbol of peace and hope for Africa as a nation and has now left the continent in despair.

Current President Jacob Zuma told reporters in a press conference,

“Our nation has lost its greatest son. His humility, his compassion and his humanity earned him our love. [Nelson Mandela’s death is] the moment of our greatest sorrow. They have sacrificed much and endured much so that our people could be free.”

Mandela died at 8:50 p.m. local time. While the specific cause of death for the African symbol has not been announced, it is believed that he died of natural causes.

Nelson Mandela will have a state funeral where all can commemorate his life. President Zuma ordered that all of the flags in the nation be flown at half-staff on Friday when the funeral is set to take place.

Due to his age and growing bouts of illness, Mandela spent the last of his days in his childhood home in the Eastern Cape Province. While he lived there for the majority of his last days, he died in his other home in Houghton.

Mandela has always been seen as a light of hope and peace for the nation of Africa which seemingly struggles with constant issues of violence, poverty and corruption.

No one from the immediate family has spoken publicly about the icon’s passing. Representatives of the family ask to respect their privacy as they mourn the loss of Nelson Mandela.
