Nelson Mandela
More than 60 heads of state have confirmed that they will attend services for Nelson Mandela in South Africa next week... The South African government says that includes all living American presidents -- except George H.W. Bush -- as well as 26 members of Congress... Is Haiti President Michel Martelly going?

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff is also going to the Mandela's funeral, accompanied by four former Brazilians Heads of State: Presidents Sarney, Melo, Cardoso and Lula da Silva.

On December 5th, Haiti's National palace released a note stating that "a Haitian delegation will travel to Johannesburg to participate in the funeral of Mandela" but it is not yet confirmed if Martelly will be a part of that delegation.

Who do you have to have all these heads of states attend your funeral?
