A state funeral for Nelson Mandela in his ancestral home of Qunu, yesterday ended a week of memorials for South Africa’s first democratically elected  President who died on 5 December aged 95.

Mandela’s body was laid to rest in a family plot, after world leaders paid tribute at a state funeral service.

The former statesman was buried after former comrades, African leaders and his family spoke glowingly of their love for Nelson Mandela and what he had taught them.
