South Africans were not alone in their mourning of Nelson Mandela, Tanzanian president Jakaya Kikwete said on Sunday.

"The people of Tanzania would like you to know you are not alone," Kikwete said at former president Nelson Mandela's state funeral in Qunu in the Eastern Cape.

"They will be with you during this period of mourning and thereafter. Your loss is our loss. He was our leader, our hero, our icon, our father, as much as he was yours.

"The people of Tanzania have lost a great friend... a great comrade in arms."
