Enfield Council has flown its flags at half mast to mark the death of Nelson Mandela

Enfield Borough Council is flying its flags at half mast in honour of Nelson Mandela, who died yesterday.

Mr Mandela was the first black president of South Africa and spent 27 years in prison for his campaign against apartheid. He died in his home in Johannesburg last night.

The council has lowered their flag and displayed the South African flag to half mast as a sign of mourning.

Nelson Mandela was the head of UmKhonto we Sizwe, (MK), the terrorist wing of the ANC and South African Communist Party. At his trial, he had pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence including mobilising terrorist bombing campaigns, which planted bombs in public places, including the Johannesburg railway station.
