He had hoped to spend some time with his friend. But today he rises to go bid him farewell.

Former President Nelson Mandela had promised to come back to Qunu to visit 92-year-old Kekena Mangqwambi an old friend and neighbour before his hospitalisation and subsequent death.

Mangqwambi – known throughout Qunu as Mandela’s “best friend” – ready’s himself to say final goodbye to Madiba.
