Johannesburg - It’s usually a happy occasion when Charlize Theron gets the opportunity to return to South Africa. 

This time however it was with a heavy heart.

Theron flew to Johannesburg from Los Angeles on Monday to attend the memorial service of the late Nelson Mandela taking place on Tuesday at the FNB Stadium in Soweto.

The actress was mobbed by paparazzi at the LA airport on Monday night as she attempted to board a plane. 

Leaders from six nations as well as many celebrities both local and international will reportedly attend the memorial event and pay their respects to Madiba.
