TO GO WITH WITH STORY BY JUSTINE GERARDY 74-year old Mkhuseli Gqabantshi at his home in Qunu, near Mthatha in the Eastern Cape, talks about his neighbour, former South African president Nelson Mandela who grew up in Qunu and returned to the village after his term as president. In the rural South African village where he once roamed as a boy, the lowered flags at Nelson Mandela's homestead are a constant reminder of his absence. Ill health forced the 94-year-old, now battling a lung infection in hospital, to leave Qunu months ago, but his latest illness has sparked prayers, worry and resignation in his home town.
