President Mahinda Rajapaksa arrived in South Africa to attend the memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela.

The official memorial service is scheduled to take place this morning at the FNB stadium in Johannesburg.

Memorial services will take place at several different locations in order to give an opportunity for more people to pay their last respects to the late President Mandela.

A large number of heads of state are expected to attend the official memorial ceremony at the stadium along with a large number of other dignitaries.

Tomorrow, President Rajapaksa will go to Pretoria to view President Mandela’s remains that will be lying in state at the Union Buildings.

Following his visit to South Africa, President Rajapaksa will then travel to Kenya for a four-day state visit during which he is scheduled to conduct bilateral discussions with Kenya’s President, attend a roundtable discussion with officials from the U.N. Environment Program and U.N. Habitat, and partake in a business forum.
