Yesterday, 05 December 2013, South Africans and the world said goodbye to a legend, Nelson Mandela.

I was outside his house early this morning to see hundreds of people dressed in pajamas,suits and cycling shorts all wanted to pay their respects to the former South African president.

    Hi Jay, do you know anything about some of these photos in the commemorative edition of Forbes magazine concerning Nelson Mandela’s death?

    I would be very interested to get hold of that article just as a self memorabilia.

    Kind regards,

    Christopher Strong

      Hi Christopher,

      Yes I do. They are the same photos that were published in Forbes Africa Magazine. I remember taking that photo of you that morning, what an emotional day. We can most certainly send you some copies. Can you send me your email address via twitter DM, @jaycaboz, and then I can get your address to deliver them!
