Buthelezi Meets Mandela Family, Pays Tribute to An Icon

12 December 2013    

 

Following Tuesday’s official memorial service for the late President Nelson Mandela, IFP President Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi MP visited the Union Buildings on Wednesday to view the body as it lay in State. From there, he drove to Vilikazi street in Soweto to pay his respects, before calling on Mrs Graça Machel at the home she shared with Madiba in Houghton, Johannesburg. 

 

Together they reflected on the life and times of the great South African icon, while sharing special memories of the friendship between Madiba and Prince Buthelezi. 

 

As our nation continues to mourn the loss of our beloved Madiba, the IFP keeps the entire Mandela family in our thoughts and prayers.
