Hmmm,,. I’m getting the impression that your press is running news of his death back to back, news report to news report. It is the same here. Frankly, I’m a a little astonished. Within an hour of the news of his death I anticipated in the Views Africa section a run of cartoons with him as the theme, but this has gone beyond my expectations.
I’m South African living in the UK and I’ve avoided the news channels myself. I accept his passing hasn’t touched you and I realise it is a little annoying for those who do not attach that much importance to him and that the coverage is so overwhelming and a tad over the top, but I ask for your patience and indulgence to bear with the rest of us.
