It is Pretoria's final goodbye to Nelson Mandela. Mandela's coffin was turned over to the military, affter a send-off ceremony by the African National Congress Party in the Waterkloof air base. The coffin was draped in the South Africa flag. President Jacob Zuma and his predecessor Thabo Mbeki looked on, as soldiers carried the casket onto a C130. The military plane brought Mandela's remains to his ancestral home in Qunu, 700 km (450 miles) south of Johannesburg.
