Dressed all in black, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela (left) offered prayers with South African president Jacob Zuma (pictured alongside her) at a church in Johannesburg as the country started a week of mourning for the inspirational freedom fighter. People are gathering all across South Africa today as Mandela’s ‘Rainbow Nation’ starts a week of official mourning to mark his death.
