Members of the public started to show their respect for Nelson Mandela by signing the condolence book now in place at the Old Spirit Bond in The City yesterday.
The steady trickle of people at the office of the Commission for Pan African Affairs on the Wharf Road started about midday and is expected to resume today at 10 a.m.
In overseeing the process, the commission’s acting director Dr Deryck Murray said another condolence book was taken to “as many schools as possible” yesterday since it was the end of term for several academic instutions.
“This is the end of the school term, and we are going to go to as many schools as possible and have the principals sign the condolence book, as well as our ambassadors known as the mabalozi, the headboys and headgirls,” Murray told the WEEKEND NATION. (RJ)
