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'."

With assistance from Amogelang Mbatha, Rene Vollgraaff, John Bowker and Paul Burkhardt in Johannesburg, Dylan Griffiths in Geneva and Mike Cohen in Cape Town.
