SOFIA - South African Embassy requests all members of the public to honor the Nelson Mandela International Day on 18 July 2018.
Nelson Mandela Body Arrives in Pretoria
South Africans have gathered in Pretoria Wednesday morning to see the coffin carrying the late Nelson Mandela's body.
Mandela’s body will lie in state in the government building for the next 3 days. As many as 2 000 people are expected to pour every hour to bid a final farewell to their hero, reports NBC News.
To ensure that each person visits the Union Buildings amphitheater only once, their fingers will be marked with the same ink used to identify voters in South African elections, officials said.
On Saturday, the African National Congress will hold a ceremony at an air force base before Mandela's body is flown to Qunu, his ancestral home, where he will be buried on Sunday.
