By Tosin Sulaiman and Peroshni Govender JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africans united in mourning for Nelson Mandela on Friday, but while some celebrated his remarkable life with dance and song, others fretted that the anti-apartheid hero's death would make the nation vulnerable again to racial and social tensions. President Jacob Zuma said the anti-apartheid hero would be buried on December 15 at his ancestral home in the Eastern Cape. South Africans had heard from Zuma late on Thursday that the statesman and Nobel Peace Prize laureate died peacefully at his Johannesburg home in the company of his family after a long illness. Zuma also announced the former president would be honoured with a December 10 memorial service at Johannesburg's Soccer City stadium - the site of the 2010 World Cup final.
South African President Jacob Zuma on Friday announced that Nelson Mandela's funeral will take place on December 15 at his rural childhood home. "He will be laid to rest on the 15th of December in Qunu in the Eastern Cape province. We should all work together to organise the most befitting funeral for this outstanding son of our country and the father of our young nation," said Zuma. Zuma said Mandela will be given a full state funeral expected to be attended by a slew of foreign leaders as well as celebrity and sports figures.
