This is so sad!
The late Nelson Mandela's daughters Zenani and Zindzi Mandela were in London for the premiere of the Mandela biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.
When the two were informed in the middle of the movie that their father had just passed away - they asked that the movie continue until the end before having his death announced to the audience. The two of them left the movie theater right away of course.
Zindzi was talking about the former South African president, only hours before his death Thursday at the age of 95, and said about her father:
"[He's] "fine. He's just a typical 95-year-old who is frail."
Many people across the world have felt the impact of losing one of the greatest individuals in the history of mankind. His contributions to society is immeasurable, and we're devastated to see him go.
Our condolences to his family and loved ones.
