Thousands have been paying their respects to Nelson Mandela while his body lies in state in South Africa's capitol. YNN's Dean Meminger has the latest from his former home, now serving as a museum.

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA -- For the second day, mourners from around the world are making their way to Pretoria to view the body of Nelson Mandela.

Mandela's casket is in the amphitheater at the Union Building, where he was inaugurated as South Africa's first democratically elected president in 1994.

The former president passed away in his Johannesburg home at the age of 95. He has been battling an ongoing illness.

Thousands of people have been lining up at the amphitheater to pay their respects before the final viewing day on Friday. Mandela will be buried in the village where he spent his childhood.
