    Agreed.


    Now if Zuma would only listen to those words more closely.
    I listened to Zuma’s announcement of Madiba’s passing over the live BBC World Service radio broadcast. Heartfelt? Probably but also with hypocrisy.
    Zuma is going to hope to bury the Nkandla report with Mandela.


    Mandela’s legacy should not be overshadowed with the likes of the Zumas.

    There is no denying Mandela’s violent communist past, but it seems that in the latter stages of his life he distanced himself from the excesses of his youth. Twenty-seven years in prison most likely produced this change.

    You know, reading GoComics is so sad, because it is so predictable. Today we get 50% “Amazon Drones” comics, 30% other stuff and 10% Mandela. Tomorrow it will be 50% Mandela, 30% other stuff and 10% “breaking news item of the day”. The world never changes…

    @Enoki

    Lower than when I left it in ’99. And I left it the second time because of the crime rate. Do you think the crime rate is because of a black government?

    @phdtogo

    muttered, “violent communist”


    You sound like a Nat apologist.
    We also often heard that he was a terrrrorrrist. We could not display any of his photos which is why everyone was surprised to see his face when he eventually was freed. 27 years before we could update his image. And whenever we referred to the ANC, we had to add the prefix “The banned” ANC.


    Ah, those were the days, when we fought “Die Rooi Gevaar en ”Die Swart Gevaar"
    (The Red Danger & The Black Danger)


    phdtogo also muttered, “Twenty-seven years in prison most likely produced this change.”
    Oh well deserved then, it mellowed him out. :-|

    Chill, omQ. Consider the source of these comments…reflect more on the posters than anyone else, both the good ones and the others.

    Hmm, yes, ok. Getting angry is counter-productive. I’ll refrain from further comments tonight.Thanks, cheers ;-)

    Wrong, Wrong, Wrong. Mandela was a founder of the MK the militant wing of the ANC. He himself wrote that if the sabotaging of facilities failed to create change the MK would move on to terrorist attacks.
    Mandela himself wrote this in his Long Walk to Freedom Vol 1.

    He had a violent past, he paid for it with 27 years in jail and emerged a better man. For that I salute him, but I do not excuse his past and neither did he.

    There was a time when the communists supported Mandela and most liberals and conservatives called him a terrorist. More credit to the communists, then, at least in this regard.

    The Bush admin kept Mandela on the terrorist watch list until 2008.
