Nelson Mandela once again united South Africans on Sunday as people irrespective of their colour and creed flocked into churches, mosques and temples to mark a `Day of prayers` for the anti-apartheid icon.
Nearly two decades in the making, the USD 33 million Nelson Mandela biopic `Mandela ? The Long Walk to Freedom` premiered in Johannesburg at a gala event hosted by internationally-renowned Indian-South African producer Anant Singh.
Anti-apartheid icon and former South African President Nelson Mandela was back home on Sunday after spending a night in hospital where he underwent a "successful medical examination", the president`s office said.
The former head of the Nelson Mandela Children`s Fund (NMCF), Jeremy Ractliffe, has resigned from the charity`s board after admitting he secretly kept ‘blood diamonds’ received from supermodel Naomi Campbell 13 years ago.
