Mandela Widow Urges World to Keep His Memory Alive
Johannesburg – As the first anniversary of Nelson Mandela’s death approaches, his widow Graca Machel said on Tuesday that her heart was growing heavier and that it was still difficult to accept he is gone.
The anti-apartheid icon died last 5 December at the age of 95 after a lengthy battle with illness.
“The more we approach the month of December, my heart is getting heavier and heavier,” said Mozambique-born Machel.
“It is still too early to live with the reality that Madiba is no more,” she said.
