After Nelson Mandela's death, the people who covered his life are sharing their memories. And for some journalists, they weren't the huge moments.
In a video for The New York Times, six journalists share times they witnessed with the South African leader in a video. Ian Fisher, a former Nairobi Bureau Chief, saw Mandela in Tanzania when the leader was 81 and there to broker piece in Burundi. Fisher admits to feeling a little disappointed at the time. Mandela seemed tired, his answers weren't sharp. Then, Mandela went to speak to the men gathered who'd killed 200,000 people.
"The atmosphere suddenly changed to absolute electricity," Fisher said, and he watched Mandela scold those gathered like they were school children.
"That night I called my wife, my wife was pregnant, and I said, you know, I think I have a name for our child. It's Nelson, he's 12 now."
Fisher's son joins him and talks about learning about his namesake.
