Dec 5, 2013 | 06:29 PM

Tributes are pouring out as celebrities and fans mourn the loss of anti-apartheid hero and South Africa's first black president Nelson "Madiba" Mandela who passed Thursday at his home at age 95. "What made Nelson Mandela great was precisely what made him human," said South African President Jacob Zuma. "We saw in him what we seek in ourselves," he added as he announced an upcoming state funeral and ordered all flags in the country to be flown at half-staff to honor the fallen leader and statesman who battled a recurring lung infection in the weeks leading to his passing. R.I.P Madiba. You will live forever.
