Johannesburg - Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema was expected to lay flowers outside Nelson Mandela’s home in Houghton on Thursday morning, before heading to the Union Buildings in Pretoria, where Madiba is lying in state.
Members of the Working on Fire programme danced and sang in Mandela’s honour.
The fire fighters, wearing bright yellow T-shirts and dark blue overall pants, filled the air with song as people continued to leave flowers and other tokens along the wall of Mandela's house.
Ice-cream vendors, police, and a few members of the media looked on as people flocked around the barricade on the corner of 4th Street and 12th Avenue. - Sapa
