South Africans mourn Nelson Mandela's death

(Continued)

JOHANNESBURG —

"I do not remember Mr Mandela ill or sad or sick," Jackie Ngubeni, who estimates his age at 48 or 49, said in an interview outside Mandela's Houghton home. "I remember him a happy man, clenched fists up in the sky saying: 'My people, my fellow citizens, my compatriots, you are free indeed'."
