Former South African President, Nelson Mandela has died.
Current President, Jacob Zuma made the announcement a short time ago.
Mandela spent almost three months in a Pretoria hospital after being admitted in June with a recurring lung infection.
The 95-year-old liberation struggle icon was discharged in September and has been receiving home-based medical attention since then.
Since June the Presidency has consistently described Mandela’s condition as ‘critical but stable’.
