South Africa's ailing first black president Nelson Mandela is still teaching life lessons and remains a fighter even as he approaches death, his daughter said Tuesday.
"Tata (father) is still with us, very strong... very courageous, even, (for) lack of a better word, on his death bed. I think he's still teaching us lessons," Mandela's oldest surviving child, Makaziwe Mandela, told public broadcaster SABC.
"Lessons in patience, lessons in love, lessons in tolerance."
