( BBC) – South Africa’s first black president and anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela has died, South Africa’s president says.
Mr Mandela, 95, led South Africa’s transition from white-minority rule in the 1990s, after 27 years in prison.He had been receiving intense home-based medical care for a lung infection after three months in hospital.
In a statement on South African national TV, Mr Zuma said Mr Mandela had “departed” and was at peace.”Our nation has lost its greatest son,” Mr Zuma said.
The Nobel Peace Prize laureate was one of the world’s most revered statesmen after preaching reconciliation despite being imprisoned for 27 years.
He had rarely been seen in public since officially retiring in 2004.
“What made Nelson Mandela great was precisely what made him human. We saw in him what we seek in ourselves,” Mr Zuma said.
“Fellow South Africans, Nelson Mandela brought us together and it is together that we will bid him farewell.
“Earlier, the BBC’s Mike Wooldridge, outside Mr Mandela’s home in the Johannesburg suburb of Houghton, said there appeared to have been an unusually large family gathering.
Among those attending was family elder Bantu Holomisa,A number of government vehicles
Since he was released from hospital, the South African presidency repeatedly described Mr Mandela’s condition as critical but stable.
He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and was elected South Africa’s first black president in 1994.
He stepped down after five years in office.
May his soul RIP….

Dr. Conrad Murray says he and Michael Jackson were so tight, he would hold his penis for him.
In a bizarre, rambling interview with The Daily Mail, Murray says, "You want to know how close we were? I held his penis every night to fit a catheter because he was
Murray went on to say, "He wore dark trousers all the time because after he went to the toilet he would drip for hours."
And there's this mystery ... Murray says, "Michael didn't know how to put a condom on, so I had to do it for him."
Murray also discloses some of the things TMZ revealed years ago -- that Murray believes Michael killed himself. Murray claims when he walked out of Michael's bedroom the day he died, "I believe he woke up, got hold of his own stash of Propofol and injected himself. He did it too quickly and went into cardiac arrest."
And, Murray suggests, MJ's kids have 3 different fathers, and Michael isn't one of them. Murray says, "Michael told me he never slept with Debbie Rowe."
And, Murray insists, Michael told him he had been sexually assaulted by one of his doctors while under sedation.
And this bizarre comment. Murray suggests Michael predicted he would die on Murray's watch. He says MJ once looked at him and said, "You know, for the rest of your life and my life our names will become inseparable." Murray says MJ smiled and said, "I am clairvoyant."

I have heard so many people question ladies who say they would want to take their time before having kids after marriage. Well, if all goes according to plan, I would like to wait too, and to the questions, I've realized it's based on so many different reasons for different ladies.
Apparently, in the majority, we seem to have ladies who would prefer getting pregnant before the wedding (totally intentional), and those who would love to get pregnant on the wedding night or in the few months after. Still out there, but a little less in number are those who would just want to wait months or even years before getting pregnant.
To those with questions, let me share some of the reasons I've heard from this last group of ladies.
1. GETTING MARRIED BECAUSE YOU AND YOUR MAN CAN'T KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF EACH OTHER BUT AREN'T READY FOR KIDS:
This reason is not so common especially among non Christians or those who may not be celibate, but then it exists. Even as most of us are quite carefree towards the religious and cultural ways and values, some still take it very seriously. Logically, religion and culture does not go against finding love or falling in love.
There is a state of being mentally, physically and emotionally ready to become a mother, now one or all of these states are not measured by age, its all about the mind and readiness. So,when two people are not only in love, but also want to be together but are not ready to start making babies, they can wait for a short or long period after getting married, before doing that..
