German Embassy Ambassador Horst Freitag joined The Complimentary Breakfast to pay his respects to Madiba on behalf of Germany, and talks about the German President, Joachim Gauck, who will be attending the funeral.
Bantu Holomisa, President of the UDM, has been a close friend to the Mandela family for years. He visited Madiba on Thursday evening, and now recalls those final moments with the former president before he passed away.
Death is something inevitable. When a man has done what he considers to be his duty to his people and his country, he can rest in peace. I believe I have made that effort and that is, therefore, why I will sleep for the eternity.
