When Nelson Mandela made his first public speech after nearly three decades in apartheid jail, Sihaam and Moutie Abrahams were in the elated crowd outside Cape Town's city hall.
On Friday, more than 20 years later, they returned to say a final farewell to the hero who carried the hopes of a bitterly divided South Africa into all-race freedom.
"We're standing on the same spot that we were in 1990 when he was released to us," said Sihaam Abrahams, 41, with her husband Moutie, 44.
"So we're here with our kids now 23 years later."
