Written by TheNigeria on 22 June 2011.

"United States First Lady Michelle Obama visited former South African president Nelson Mandela at his home yesterday during the first full day of a six-day visit to southern Africa, his foundation said. Obama, who arrived in South Africa late Monday, visited Mandela’s charitable foundation and archives yesterday and took a tour with the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s wife, the humanitarian and former Mozambican first lady Graca Machel. Obama then paid a “brief courtesy call” on Mandela at his nearby Johannesburg home, said Achmat Dangor, the head of the foundation. The first lady, who was wearing a coral suit with collarless jacket and a bright print blouse, was accompanied by her mother, Marian Robinson, her daughters, Malia and Sasha, and a niece and nephew."  -    Sun News
