VIDEO : R.I.P. Nelson Mandela Dead At Age 95.

After a long battle with his health, South African anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela has died at age 95.
Earlier today there were reports that Mandela was on his death bed and relatives were gathering at his home in Johannesburg South Africa to pay their respects and share the last moments of the iconic man’s life. Two of Mandela’s granddaughters and a close family friend were seen among those in the house. NBC news reports that Mandela’s daughters were unfortunately in London, traveling back from the premiere of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. The timing of Mandela’s death is especially sad as many have been celebrating his life and legacy by way of this latest biopic on his life.
President Jacob Zuma broke the news that the former South African president had passed away at home and reportedly did so peacefully. As we all know, Mandela spent 27 of his 95 years of life behind bars for actively working to dismantle the legacy of apartheid in his country. Mandela went on to serve as the first black South African president of his country from 1994 to 1999 and believed in democracy so much that he only served one term. His last public appearance was in 2010 when South Africa hosted the FIFA World Cup.
