South Africa has now completed its 10-days tribute to Madiba. I was lucky enough to reach on-time for the last day of celebration for Mandela Funeral in his ancestral home Qunu. An amazing moment that I felt privileged to attend as a photographer. See below a couple of black and white pictures in the village of the Eastern Cape. While the procession was taking place, villagers were hanging out around Mandela’s house or gathering near the giant screens.
