Fellow South Africans

Ladies and gentlemen of the media

Welcome to this briefing on 9 December 2013 – a day before the National Memorial Service for the late President Nelson Mandela will be held at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg. This is also a day on which we are welcoming a growing number of international leaders to South Africa.

Since we are briefing media, let me start by thanking the media for the patience you showed yesterday when you had to wait in long queues for accreditation at the Nasrec Expo Centre.
