The outpouring of condolences from across the world for Madiba shows that the anti-apartheid revolutionary and former South African president was a "global citizen," and he now "is at home with great friends," a spokesman for the family said in the first statement from the human rights leader's immediate kin since his death.

"[The family] is humbled by the messages of condolences and support we continue to receive from governments and people of the world," Mandela family spokesman Lt. Gen Themba Matanzima said today.Matanzima, who is a member of the Thembu clan to which the Mandelas belong, spoke in South Africa this afternoon on national television.Mandela died Thursday at 95 at his home in Johannesburg, surrounded by his family, after fighting a long battle against a lung infection.
