A huge statue of Nelson Mandela has been erected in front of the Union Buildings, the seat of South Africa’s government, in the capital Pretoria.
Mandela, who died on December 5, is lying in state in Pretoria for a third and final day. Thousands of people joined long queues to pay their respects.
Some expressed concerns about South Africa’s future. One man said: “My worries are about, especially in the communities, about this word called xenophobia. That is the worry because it started when he [Mandela] was alive.”
