Johannesburg - Former president Nelson Mandela sacrificed everything in his life for the political liberation of the country, the Economic Freedom Fighters said on Friday.

"The determination of Nelson Mandela to fight for what was basic logic of political emancipation is among the greatest in the history of humanity," the EFF said in a statement.

"Nelson Mandela fought tirelessly to gain political power, democracy, and freedom, and handed over the baton for those who had to fight for economic freedom."

President Jacob Zuma announced that Mandela had died peacefully at his Johannesburg home on Thursday night.

The EFF sent its condolences to the Mandela family and close friends.

"We thank the Madibas for the great gift you have given the people of South Africa, Africa and the world in the person of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.

"You gave us many years of his long life, spent fighting for genuine freedom and the revelation of the human spirit," the party said.
