Anti-apartheid activist Ahmed Kathrada, who spent 26 years in jail - many of them alongside Nelson Mandela - for acts of sabotage against South Africa's white minority government, died in Johannesburg on Tuesday morning at the age of 87.

Al Jazeera's Tania Page, reporting from Johannesburg, said that it was a sad day in South Africa - where Kathrada was affectionately known as "Uncle Kathy" - as tributes poured in about his widely perceived kindness, humility, and honesty.

Kathrada's activism against the white-minority apartheid regime started at the age of 17, when he was one of 2,000 "passive resisters" arrested in 1946 for defying a law that discriminated against Indian South Africans.
