South Africa president Jacob Zuma has described Nelson Mandela as a “man of action” during the ANC’s farewell ceremony at the Waterkloof Air Base in Pretoria.
Zuma said:“So many things have been said about Madiba because he has done so many things; he has distinguished himself so many times in every way you can think of...
“He combined two things that are not easy to do - to combine theory and practice. He did it more than many [times].”
