Celebrations continue on the streets of Johannesburg as thousands honor the memory of the late Nelson Mandela.

FOX News Radio's Emily Wither reports from Johannesburg:

Here in the black township of Soweto, it feels like a bit of a party outside Mandela's former home. This singing, dancing and foot stamping is a sign of respect.

For the first black President-- a man who is often called the father of the nation. This street in a poor black neighborhood is actually the only street in the world that was once home to two Nobel Peace Prize winners. Both fighters of apartheid-- Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Celebrations for Mandela's life are expected to continue here for some time.
