RIP Nelson Mandela: islands fly flags at half-mast

From Governor Mark Capes, St Helena:

“I know that the news of Nelson Mandela’s death will be received with great sadness by the people of St Helena, Ascension Island and Tristan da Cunha. During my visit to South Africa only a few weeks ago, I spoke of the close historical, family and cultural links with South Africa and of the warm and friendly relationship we enjoy.

“At this sad time we give thanks for the life of a truly great man and celebrate the powerful and lasting legacy of his commitment to peace and reconciliation. On behalf of our communities on all three islands, I extend sincere condolences to Mr Mandela’s family and to all the people of South Africa.”

Governor Capes directed that all flags on St Helena, Ascension Island and Tristan da Cunha should be flown at half-mast on 6 December 2013, the day after Mr Mandela’s passing.
