Paying tribute to Nelson Mandela, the leader of Plaid Cymru Leanne Wood said:
“Mandela was a man of conviction who stood up for what he believed in. He was also politically a radical who dedicated his life to speaking out against injustice.
“His achievements were many and great, but they are not yet complete.
“Across the world we still see poverty and we still see violence used to justify power. That remains particularly true of the continent of Africa, but elsewhere too.
“Our greatest tribute is not to remember Nelson Mandela as an individual but to take action to complete his work.
“It should not be to just say how great he was, for taking on injustice. It should be tackling injustice ourselves.
“The best way to honour and extend Mandela’s legacy, for us in Wales, is to do as he said and to work towards the eradication of global, man-made poverty.”
