Letters with stamps bearing images of former South African President Nelson Mandela are sold on June 27, 2013 in the street outside Union Buildings in Pretoria. Mandela was in a 'very critical' condition on life support on June 27, family members said, warning South Africa and the world that 'anything is imminent' for the revered anti-apartheid hero. As South Africans prayed for Mandela, President Jacob Zuma late on June 26 abruptly cancelled a trip to Mozambique after he visited the hospital where Mandela is critically ill.
