Former President Nelson Mandela has been carried by SANDF, ANC members and AbaThembu chiefs.

Pall bearing is a significant procedure in a funeral as the participants represent important organisations in Mandela’s life. The pall bearing goes hand in hand with a heavy cloth that is draped over a coffin. You will notice with different bearers the cloth also changes.
