South Africans set to bid Mandela farewell

Tributes being paid around the world, with anti-apartheid icon's official memorial service scheduled for December 10.

    South Africans are preparing to say goodbye to the anti-apartheid icon on December 10, the scheduled date for Mandela's official memorial services.

But even before then, South Africans will have the chance to remember the man who changed their country forever.
