Johannesburg - It was spontaneous, but not unexpected that so many people came together to pray for Nelson Mandela.
Alongside President Jacob Zuma and Madiba’s former wife and his grandson - Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and Mandla Mandela - the Bryanston Methodist Church was packed with mourners on Sunday.
This was one of the many prayer services held across the country for Nelson Mandela.
“This was pretty spontaneous,” said the Rev Demetris Palos after the service.
He said the family had asked if they could attend this service, and it “just grew from there”.
