Nelson Mandela’s once-elegant Houghton home in Johannesburg is now an eyesore, after being abandoned by his family.

On December 5, 2013, Nelson Mandela, the former activist who overcame a nearly three-decade prison stint to become president of South Africa, passes away after years of struggling with health issues. He was 95.

The house at 12th Avenue in which some of the world’s leading figures were hosted, was until last year occupied by Mandela’s grandchildren, Ndaba, Mbuso and Andile, who are the sons of the late Makgatho Mandela. Makgatho was Madiba’s son by his first wife, Evelyn.

Sunday Times reported that the electric gate is seemingly broken, portions of the roof fascia are missing or collapsing, the tennis court is crumbling and the tiled roof of one of the outbuildings is sagging.

It was also learnt that the three brothers lived in the house after Mandela’s death, but Ndaba said they moved out after the Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (NRM) Family Trust stopped paying the utility bills.

When the Sunday Times team visited the house last week, a man who opened the gate said it was being sold. He said;

“I have come to help Mandela’s grandsons … We have put furniture in storerooms. From last week people have been to see the house.”

Everything including your own structure will also pass away (except your saved soul). You that is still calling sin enjoyment repent now and be save.

The house has served its purpose to accommodate.Nelson Mandela.All the houses that we are struggling to erect, will also be eventually abandoned after our demise.When we are building 4 or 5 houses, what do we expect to become of them after our passing?
