Obama meets with South African Pres. Zuma, Mandela’s family

President Obama continued his tour of Africa Saturday with his second stop in South Africa where he met with ailing icon Nelson Mandela’s family and also held meetings with current South African President Jacob Zuma.

Obama honored Mandela during his meeting with Zuma, saying: “The struggle here against apartheid for freedom, Madiba’s moral courage, this country’s historic transition to a free and democratic nation has been a personal inspiration to me. It has been an inspiration to the world.”

Obama will close his visit to South Africa by visiting historic prison Robben Island near Cape Town before traveling to Tanzania, his last stop on his tour to Africa.
