Durban - KwaZulu-Natal residents wanting to send messages of condolence for former president Nelson Mandela can sign books available in all districts of the province, premier Senzo Mchunu said on Monday.

“Tata Madiba was a father to all of us, we encourage all the people of the province to pour out their feelings in writing to convey how we as a people honour this remarkable father of our nation,” Mchunu said in a statement.

There would be a further opportunity to sign the books at the provincial memorial service at Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Friday.

“We should all come in our thousands to give a befitting farewell to our icon, as not all of us can go to Qunu for the funeral on Sunday,” Mchunu said.

“We also encourage the public to join us in mourning at various Madiba mourning viewing sites in all our districts.” - Sapa
