Nelson Mandela book of condolence

By on 06/12/2013 in News

Anyone wishing to pay tribute to former South African president Nelson Mandela following his death yesterday (December 5) can do so by signing a book of condolence, established by Birmingham City Council.

The book is available just inside the main entrance of the Council House in Victoria Square.

Contributions can be added whenever the main entrance of the building is open. The book will be closed on December 15 to coincide with his funeral, burial and the period of mourning being observed in South Africa.

Entries will be compiled and bound before being sent to Mr Mandela’s family on behalf of the city of Birmingham.

    I feel priviledged to have breathed the same air as Mr Nelson Mandela. God used Nelson Mandela to show the whole world that true forgiveness and love is the only way to living a meaningful, peaceful, and prosperous life. Mr Mandela’s spirit lives on.
