“How will you remember, & how will you make this change” 

NELSON Mandela, who led South Africa out of apartheid and became the nation’s first black president, has died at the age of 95.

He passed away in the company of his family at around 8:50 pm on December 5, South African President Jacob Zuma announced in a statement to the nation’s people.

“But though we knew that this day would come, nothing can diminish our sense of the profound and enduring loss.
