While preparations are underway for Nelson Mandela’s funeral, the rain is not letting up.

For Qunu residents this is a sign that the late leader was a blessing

When it rains just before or during an important event, it is widely believed in Xhosa culture that the spirits are pleased.

The locals also said that the rain show that Mandela has been welcomed by the ancestors.

It’s been raining since Monday.
