Tomorrow's funeral in Nelson Mandela's ancestral home town of Qunu will be "very different" from what the country has seen over the past few days, the country's Transport Minister told reporters.

It is different in the sense of privacy, as this is the phase where the family, senior leadership in the country and a select group of international dignitaries will be part of proceedings.
