Nelson Mandela Health scare

What will happen when Nelson Mandela dies?

Nelson Mandela is a great man. The debacle surrounding the Mandela health scare last week was hardly befitting of the 92 year old leader. As a result of a petty turf war and a non-existent communication strategy between the Department of Defence and the Nelson Mandela Foundation, South Africans found themselves victims of a news blackout on the subject.

For two days, the idle minds of the general public were left to create and spread wild speculation on the former president’s health. Sad to say – as expected, the opportunistic media spared no time or expense trying capitalise on it. Besides swamping Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg where Madiba was admitted, no doubt hoping to capture the last live or first dead photo of the man for their front pages, they contributed to the confusion by publishing the mish-mash of conflicting information from various sources.

The point of interest is not about the rather inconsequential lack of communication planning however, it is about the reality of the situation. Nelson Mandela is a struggle icon whose legacy will certainly last for many decades to come. He is 92 years old and clearly frail. What do South Africans expect to happen to the man, and to the country, following his inevitable and sad departure? Judging by the mass hysteria and panic over the last week, Wonkie is not quite sure.

Wonkie has heard the usual paranoid conversations about a certain race group running rampant across the country happily redistributing wealth just seconds after Mr Mandela’s death, but what do other realistic South Africans think will happen?

  1. I think the legacy of Nelson Mandela will live forever and it will be the saddest day when he dies. For now, I wish him nothing but a speedy recovery… he has the nation’s and the world’s prayers with him!

    Viva Mandela!

  2. Mamochabo says:

    Really it will be a sad day for the whole country particularly the Madiba family eventhough the coutry will make a lot of money through his death more especialy the media, but the legacy will remain forever. I wish him nothing but a speedy recovery.

  3. Great publicity opertunity for ANC and publicity for Murderess Winnie Mandela to show her face,and “nog al” crying her eyes out in front of the media to get sympathy for herself.
    God forbid,what`s going to happen if the guy really dies and where was Winnie the POO all her life when her husband was imprisoned.Krokodil trane to get into the action of the limelight.

  4. The sun will still come up the next day and life will go on. We as a country will miss the increadible effect he had on all our lives.
    The top brass of the anc realise that mass action against the whites will lead to the distruction of this country as it is still afterall the whites who run the ecconomy.

  5. I read somewhere about “Siener van Rensburg’s Nag van die Lang messe” and hope that this do not refer to of what will happen after Madiba’s demise!

  6. It will be the biggest event since 9/11 and the Tsunami. A lot of ANC Politicians will make a lot of money out of the whole event. Media companies have already set up offices near Qunu,Transkei, to get the best vantage points for broadcasting purposes. Like Vultures circling.

  7. Live to Love says:

    Even if Madiba can go we won’t go into any civil war whatsoever. We have leaders within the ruling party who always make mistakes but they still can rule this country successfully. It is inevitable that one day Tata will go. What do we expect? This is just paranoia that is created by the West using the same “agents” within our shores. What did they say when Madiba came into power in ’94? ‘Let’s wait and see. They (Blacks) can’t successfully run a country’. We were never, and still now, a shining example but we did and are still doing. These people are the same people who wreaked havoc in Africa which ultimately made Africa what it is today – rich in minerals and poor economically and always in conflict. Our leaders may not have learnt that much from Tata but they have and they won’t let his legacy and the country down.

  8. Hi all.
    Mr Mandela is a world icon and will be remembered for many years. I think he can be very proud as to what he achieved in his life, but our people is destroying what he and many others fight for. RSA will carry on as usual and give Mr mandela an honourable funeral. South Africa will grow and become one of the greatest on the african contenant.

  9. As Tata Mandela is a great person i think every body all over the wold will be hurt and sad, because we love him he is great man faithfull one and also a good man oh God will you please give him more extra days of his life heal him.

  10. Better the Whites run the economy,look what has happened to the government and country since the Blacks has been running it.”God forbid the blacks taking over the economy which they are determined to do.WHAT UTTER CHAOS,like the rest of Africa,South Africa no better or elsewhere than in Africa,the country has to go the same way as Africa,it is our destiny!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Ashley A.Eaton says:

    Certain guys will make a “thing” of it and it could easily mean spilling blood both blacks and whites and it’ll be interesting to see if the SAPS and SANDF will be able to contain it if not the Lord help all of us.

  12. i rather like the story in the Bible where someone lived to be more then 600 years old,was taken to the mountain [i think ]to be near his Maker.This should drive the world media of today crazy.

  13. Kgosietsile says:

    He’s a man God he will go to heaven like others.

  14. 1Nelson Mandela has become over the last two decades has become a true icon in South Africa. Where once he was regarded as a political prisoner today he is regarded as the Father of the Freedom struggle. This being said, to me Nelson Mandela will always be a person of inspiration for us all. I believe that if apartheid had been demolished way before the 1990′s and had he been released at an earlier age, the country would have benefited more from this wonderful man. Now as the saying goes “Tomorrow is promised to no man” , Nelson Mandela is a man too, so one day he will no longer be with us…my only hope is that on that day we all come together again as a country united and mourn the great man we all came to love. As for what happens thereafter, I’m not a prophet, but I would suspect that the corruption in government will become more rampant, and Malema will find some way to blame the “racist whites” for his death (LOL) , Zuma will carry on dancing to the freedom songs and pointing fingers at the “old government” for causing the country to be in such turmoil economically…hey anything goes :)

  15. sithandile says:

    well it would clearly b a sad day 2 de black nation, bt truth b told…white ppl would b vry hppy 2 c dat hppn, they wld even celebrate 4 de death of Madiba!

  16. Sithandile, I live in Ventersdorp(!) and even here what you say about the joy of whites if that great man dies, is absolutely not true. But sadly the ANC has gone from bad to worse and you need not be white to see that, just not totally biased and blind.

  17. People like boerkie will be very happy to see Mandela die as they still think they are better than blacks and should run this country’s economy alone. What greedy pieces of sh*t they (whites) are. They ran this country for over 150 years and look what havoc they caused this country. If it wasn’t for their greediness, this country will be a developed country by now.

  18. James Ross says:

    You will, no doubt, hear the umpire say, “over”. players will shuffle around the “field” and play will resume normally. It is a Sobers thought.

  19. Behardien, The “Siener van Rensburg”- predictions sounds so very, very applicable that it sends shivers down one’s spine. But I don’t believe in predictions about the future as nobody knows it and have decided that if it is to come true I will possibly be murdered and won’t worry any more but if not – which is what I expect- then I will never again waver in my rejection of these so-called supernatural phenomena. I am just worried for my son. Luckily he starts this year as a new lecturer at the University of Namibia and my perception is that the ruling party in Namibia- as the one in Botswana- is far superior to any other, including our own.

  20. Much as I revere Madiba and will be hugely distressed by his death – nothing will happen! The Black elite will get richer, fatter and more arrogant; the black people generally will become poorer and poorer and more disillusioned, and the whites will continue to bury their heads in the sand and vote for Helen and patricia.

  21. Kgosietsile, are you serious, man god? go to heaven?? how are man gods made? how do they get to heaven? what are they going to do in heaven that cannot be done here?

  22. GatvolinSA says:

    I do not think that “whites” should run the country or the economy. I ALSO do not think that “blacks” (or any other race group) should run the country or the economy. I believe that “the QUALIFIED” should run the country and the economy. The ability to do the job is what counts, not the amount of pigment in your skin. Those who know how should train those who do not and in Madiba’s honor we should all lay aside this racial hate and work together for the greater good of ALL children of South Africa.

    I am a pale skinned female and I offer honor to Madiba and his family.

    You are and always will be an inspiration Madiba. I pray that your eventual journey to the land of your ancestors is peaceful and without pain. Until that day, I pray that you have good health and no suffering. I pray that the wise of this country will continue to emulate you and your actions. I pray that the foolish of this country will learn from you and grow to be better people. I pray that this country and ALL her children will remember what you fought for and that you achieved it without bloodshed or violence. May God bless you and this beautiful country. Amen.

  23. The passing of Madiba will lead to an immediate period of national mourning. The radicals on both sides will start making noises and eventually the fighting will start. And the hard won peace that madiba has fought for his whole life will be lost in the mists of time and surplanted by a violence that will be reminiscent of Sharpeville and Soweto.
    Sadly, there will be war. And when the dust clears, only one victor will remain standing. And the rest of the world will turn away and pretend nothing is happening. It will be another Rwanda

  24. Mojaki K. Mojaki says:

    There is absolutely nothing that will happen after the ultimate death of comrade Nelson mandela. He has lived his life to the fullest and earned the “icon-ship” through his self-sacrifice and leadership skills. The Mandela era came and past. Mbeki was and is no more in South African politics. The same applies with Zuma whose term will come and pass. However, the nature of the contribution of Nelson Mandela has elevated him above local politics and gave him a cosmopolitan stature. You guys speak as if people are afraid to do bad or good just because mandela is still alive. Life is not shaped on the whims of individuals. South Africa will enjoy its democracy and freedom. Arab states will continue to burn each other to achieve their democracy. USA will still harbour the illusion that it is the world leader. Terrorists will still haunt other states with the hope of bringing in their won regimes. I will still be writing my articles. Wonkie will still be saying his non sorry sense. Let us leave Mandela to spend his last days in joy and tranquility. He has played his role and earned our love and appreciation. Now it is time we set him free and keep his memories alive in our hearts.

  25. At the funeral there will be many people coming from outside the country. what i can say is that the whole world will be here in South Africa.

  26. I THINK THOSE WHO ARE REALLY COMMITTED TO THE ANC, WILL WORK VERY HARD TO MAKE SURE THAT ANC NEVER DIES ….. THIS IS WHAT TATA WOULD LOVE TO SEE HAD HE HAD TIME ……SO AM I , WITHOUT LOOKING FOR POSITION AND GAIN…SERVICE DELIVERY.

  27. Hey guys this is wrong. Imagine there’s your father or mother or your sister who ever one of your family is sick then there’s somebody ask you the question like of that on”what will happen when your own father,mother who ever dies”,how would u fill.

  28. NOTHING MUCH SHALL REALY CHANGE, 1 MAN WAS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE END OF APARTHEID, MANY DIED DURING THE STRUGLE, THEY GAVE THEIR BLOOD MANDELA DID NOT, THE ANC WILL STILL REMAIN AS STRONG, PEOPLE LIKE HIS GRAND SON ARE WAITING FOR THIS DAY, IT IS HIS DEATH THEY WILL USE TO EMPOWER THEMSELVES
    IT WILL BE A SAD DAY, WE MIGHT MOURN HIS DEATH EVRY YEAR,
    !!!BUT NOTHING WIL CHANGE!!!

  29. Collitjies says:

    Why is he depicted as Jesus Christ, what good did he actually do for this country except allow “necklace murders, plant bombs to kill innocent women and children sanction abortion. There is a problem though the truth as to why he had his vacation on Robben Island will never be made public as if it did he would looser all of his fans.

  30. Collitjies, you don’t know what you are talking about.

  31. I have NO sympathy with him.

  32. J.L. Strydom says:

    a funeral will be held.

  33. 99.9% of south africans will be devastated

  34. Nelson Mandela has earned a place in History and will be regarded as one of the great people who lead and influenced the world in the paths of peace and reconciliation. His parting will be one of great sorrow, but we all die eventually and should be grateful that we lived in the the time of Mandela. Those Idiots who want to chase out their white fellow South Africans or deny opportunity to their fellow black South Africans , have not listened to the message that Mandela brought us. Let us pray to the ancestors and let Mandela be among those prayers.

  35. All Madiba always wanted is for a nation to unite, be one nation with one goal. I think we should look at the positive things that has been happening ,i.e. The soccer world cup……..We finally showed the world there’s no wild animals walking in our back yard and that we’ve got 5 star hotels and we are capable of hosting world class events…….I say thats what we should build on……and thanks to Madiba and all the others that fight for freedom. Lets not start a new war……let not all be a Malema 1 is enough and already causing too much damage…….”TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE”

  36. GatvolinSA I salute you.

  37. What will happen,is that what we are now experiencing will be nyce & worse…

  38. Well done Heinrich and Gatvolin SA ………

  39. As usual, the rich (White,indian,coloured or black) will be the most scared.
    Who is always scared the most?. Those who have the most to lose!.

  40. Another holiday will be declared, further depleting what little economy we still have…

  41. SpiritWolf says:

    What will happen i suspect in South Africa is a lot of mourning. Much like when Princess Diana died. But as we know Africans know how to throw a decent funeral, Princess Diana’s world wide televised funeral wont hold a candle to Dear President Madiba. And the same thing will happen as time passes, he will be fondly remembered for the good things, not that he killed people in the struggle or that he was a political murder, but rather for the good things in later life and his worldwide charity foundations. It is hardly likely he is holding all the racists at bay by living, frail at 92, and at the moment of death the floodgates of racial prejudice and mass Rhodesia war will break out.

  42. The good man will be buried. There will be some paranoia and some hysteria mostly among black people. After some time life will go on.

  43. I think the day of his death must be marked as a public holiday & government must provide buses 4 people who want 2 attend his funeral

  44. Nelson Mandela is a good man old but surely not the a god or saint that the Mandela foundation and the ANC have hyped him up to be. Yes he spent 18 years on Robben Island and a further nine years in a prison warden’s house in relative luxurious surroundings with a man servant, but that does not make him a saint. One great thing that he did when compared to most other African leaders was to give up the state presidency after five years. In my opinion Mandela was not the world statesman that Jan Smuts was. The latter was a co founder of the old league of nations as well as the present United Nations. He was a general who physically fought for his people and went on to lead South Africa during two world wars. Smuts was a world statesman. Mandela is a grand old man. But vastly overated. His latest illness was genuine but due to the hyped up world media coverage, it gained many many political points for the ANC with the minicipal elections just two months away. I wish that he lives for many more years to come. Just as i do for all people of his age.

  45. ON MY PART NOTHING WILL HAPPN EXCEPT TO PARTY FOR THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THIS IRRITATING FIGURE!

    MAYBE THE FOREIGNERS,INDIANS AND WHITES AND COLOUREDS WHO BENEFITTED FROM HIM WILL BE AT A GREAT LOSS!DAMMIT!ALL MY CORRESPONDENCES TO HIM FROM THE DAY HE WAS RELEASED RIGHT-UP TO HIS RETIREMENT HAVE BEEN GREETED WITH CONTEMPT BUT HE DOES NT TELL ME WHAT I HAVE DONE TO DESERVE THIS CONTEMPT

    I HAVE EVEN RESORTED TO MARCHING TO HIS HOUSE TO DEMND RSPONS BU HE WAS QUICK TO USE HIS PROTECTORS TO KEEP ME AT BAY.AT ONE STAGE, THE GUARD AT THE GATE WHO WAS SYMPATHETIC ASKED ME IF I SPOKE TO HIM BECAUSE HE WAS IN A CAR THAT HAS JUST DEPARTED…

    MY FIRST LETTER WAS HANDED TO JOHNNY ISSEL`S WIFE TO PASS IT ON SINCE AS A JOURNALIST SHE HAD BETTER CHANCE OF HANDING IT OVER ON THE DAY HE WAS RELEASED COHORTING HIM TO END THE GENDER DISCRIMINATION THAT IS ASSOCIATED WITH HIS TRADITIONS SINCE WITH THIS DISCRIMNATION HE CAN`T ORDER WHITES TO END RACISM!

    I FOLLOWED THIS BY PROTESTING THE SCRAPPING OF THE MIGRANT LABOUR YSTEM,THE NEED TO PROTECT BLACKS AGAINST CONTINUED FORMER SPECIAL FORCES TRANSGRESSIONS BASED ON DESTABILISATION,COLONISATION AND POVERTY…BUT INSTEAD TURNED HIS FACE BLUE WITH THESE DEMANDS BY THE CLOSURE OF THE DOOR ON MY FACE.I`M COMMEMORATING PW BECAUSE HE AS NOT AT ALL A RACIST AND A FASCIST BUT A VISIONARY LEADER

  46. when Mandela dies the anc will make use of his death to try and win the next couple of elections and blame his death on apartheid.

  47. i`m hitting back by posting messages on lamppost commemorating pw botha!

    noo,i suspect that there wa actually nothing wrong with him but a electioneering ploy after it got warning signals from its apparitchik advisers that if it does not pull its socks it might lose this election on a wide margin!these are mafia skollies and with mafia everything is possible!

  48. Silly people will start worshiping him(Mandela Church), Many hypocrite politicians will make a career out of him. Media as usual will make a lot of noise about it. Personally i wont be affected that much, it will only take a week or so before people move on and return to their old selfish ways. The same thing happened with Martin Luther, Gandi, and many other heros

  49. If my “man”dies geese ia can’t imagine what would happen to SA. not that im referring to the racist part but some people will be relieved. Mandela was a wonderful person and he did a great job. All his expectations was endured and he needs to rest now but SA will never forget him though!!!viva Mandela i hope you don’t die soon but if I finish my matric and you might die, i wil definitely come to your funeral. my english is bad because AFR is my home language but i am black.thats all for now

  50. As normal South Africans, there is still life after the man has departed and our kids will surely want to grow older knowing their future is secured.

  51. Madikizela will be held up for overspeeding again whilst rushing to her ex’s funeral. Madikizela and Graca will be closer together because their common denominator will be no more- what will be the use of fussing and fighting anyway? South Africa, Africa and the entire world will be devastated, the man is a true icon and a genius. I love him long live Madiba. You are a real gentleman for what you did for humankind. I wish you good health Tata.

  52. Kildaire's daughter says:

    Obviously there will be a great state funeral, on which all SA citizens (or most) will agree. Then they (the government and pressure groups) will want a (nother!) public holiday declared. Furthermore the nation will want to mourn and stay away from work for at least a week. After all, they must get something out of it too!

  53. It can be a great lose to the world,for he is a geat man.

  54. Great or not – Sadly the rest of the world will forget him the minute he is interred. Then the South Africans will be left to sort out what follows

  55. Hastheworldgonecrazy... says:

    @ Sithandile. How dare you assume to know what the reaction will be amongst whites? How dare you demean this great man with your puerile and uneducated remarks? Madiba’s passing will have the entire world in mourning, regardless of race! He is one of the most evolved souls alive today, but, sadly, the rest of humanity are too un-evolved to learn from him and live by his example.
    Nothing bad will happen when Nelson Mandela dies, but the world will be left a poorer and more desolate place without the presence of this truly pure soul. We are blessed to have experienced his unconditional love for humanity, and his unique ability to forgive.
    The above statement made sincerely, and sadly, by a WHITE person, who loves Madiba! (As do many, many of us!)

  56. MADIBA is a great man, i wished he could have been a president just like MUGABE(for many years), till God do us apart maybe this would have been much different.

  57. The African continent’s main downfall is the idolisation of its leaders. Hence the reason why Mugabe, Mubarak, and countless other African leaders refuse to give up power. The have been led to believe that they are gods.
    In respect of Nelson Mandela, let us have some intelligent perspective here;-
    1. Mother Theresa worked for the poor all of her life and died living amongst them. Yet she does not have a UN day named after her as Mandela has.
    2. Nelson Mandela seved 18 years on Robben Island. He then has spent 29 years living a fairly luxurious lifestyle. IE nine years in a Warden’s house with swimming pool, servant at his beck and call, at Polesmore prison, while negotiating with PW Botha and F.W. De Klerk. When he left the prison 20 years ago he purchased and moved into his present house in Houghton where he still lives and deserves to be in his twlight years.
    3. Compare this to the forgotten ANC stalwart Walter Sizulu. He completed 27 years inprisoned on Robben Island. He then went home to his wife and home in Soweto where he worked amongst his people. Walter died in Soweto at home in 2003. All forgotten and with no foundation to elevate him to godliness and sainthood.
    Nelson Mandela is a very good human being but is far too overated as a world statesman. Lets get real.

  58. sithandile says:

    @Reaper – it seems people like u wil celebrate his death the minute he passes on…no1 wil ever 4get him…except idiots like YOU!

    @Hastheworldgonecrazy – look i was saying something that i know! i wasn’t assuming at all…i’m attended white and it was hurtfull 2 hear the way that they talked abt Madiba. “uneducated” well my parents never went 2 school bcoz of your grand parents…now they can’t afford my Varsity tuition!! in case u didn’t know!

  59. I’ll be devasted because I still want to meet him in person and dine with him.

  60. It will be devastating for Africa as a whole.

  61. I cant celebrate the death of any man as great as madiba- but I can be realistic about the future,especially with comments and disguised hatred for other races such as comments of many posted on here.Like MONKATSO just above these posts. Let us rather do justice to his legacy and live HIS dream for the nation.
    Sadly, thats asking too much for many people

  62. There are crack pots on the left and on the right. The average “normal” citizen will respect his legacy and will think “be quite a great man has come to rest”.
    The winnies and foulmouths will probably morne for the cameras and be forgotten

  63. Kgosietsile
    You talk bull….mandela the terrorist will go to hell as he is a non-believer…not even worshipping ancecstors, only himself!

    Mojaki K. Mojaki

    Mandela have no skills at all except terrorism – the media needed a “madiba” and if oliver thambo did not depart to hell before nelson, thambo would have been the one declared a saint by the bulshitting/brainwashing media!

    and JO,

    Obama is going to be the most devastating thing that happened to africa as he will soon be known as the biggest idiot that ever lived on the USA taxes in the whitee house..just wait ans see! ;) Like dukie says “they have been led to believe that they are gods.”…that’s africa tradition/mentality!

    Fact is, africans doworship ancestors..the reason why the AU won’t force mugabe and the fool from the Ivory coat out..they to close to the grave and will be “angry ancestors” with fools like zume etc. once they dead! ;) How pathetic!

  64. Manzo Khulu says:

    Following the immediate sensational frenzy a la Michael Jackson, life in SA will soon continue as normal and uncertain as as it is now.

  65. why will he be remembered or problems going to escalate because he has been dormant since he retired and he solved no problems prior to his retirement!

    All that he was doing was to Corrupt the world to design a redMERC FOR HIMSELF AND GIVE HOUSES TO HIS CRONIES THAT`S WHY AFTER HIS RETIREMENT HE REALISED HIS FAILURE AND ASKED CORPORACY TO BUILD SCHOOLS FOR BLACKS BECAUSE HIM AND HIS CRONIES HAVE EATEN ALL THE MONEY INCLUDING THAT OF BUILDING SCHOOL.

    what about the arms deal implications?hey,man!tell me about someone else not this old chump skelm who and his household have been embroiled in one scandal after the other and this does not seem to have an ending!he married graca so as to bring investigations of samora machel death to an end because this was gonna make him a controversial person with whites his benefactors and he stopped makgoba from exposing white faked and frauulnt professors.

  66. dontsa omkhulu says:

    I THINK TATA MUST DIE WHEN WE HAVE A PRESEDENT IN MZANSTI BECOZ WE HAVE NO PRESEDENT

  67. South Africa and also the leaders of this country have learnt the art of diplomacy from Tat’u Mandela. I do not think anything bad will befall this country after the departure of our Father of the Nation on this planet earth. Evil mongers are the ones that are busy conniving to come up with evil ideas and thoughts about this country after Mandela. Mandela managed with others during his time to lay a solid foundation for the future of this country and we have capable leaders who will take this country forward. In a nutshell, we will obviously be devastated by the loss of pious leader but we will take his legacy forward by practising humility, compassion and Ubuntu to one another. Let us not be pessimists but optimistic about the future of this country. South Africa belongs to all who lives in it.

  68. Ron Swartz says:

    We should expect that Madiba will die soon – the man has led a long life, full of stress, but also full of hope. He is clearly our political moral compass, the one to whom all other leaders turn for endorsement of the positions they seek to advance. His is the voice that we listen to when we seek to balance political reality with moral direction. Obviously, when he dies, thereare fears that we will be leaderless and that the corrupt and unscrupulous among our current leadeship will run amok.
    I don’t think so. His passing will leave a major gap, but also a deep sadness across the nation. I know I will deeply mourn the icon. We should expect though, that a new leader will stand up in his place. Right now there are many who can stand in his shoes and who can advance the values and principles that he stood for. It is important for the survival of our democracy that new leaders of his quality be given the opportunity to stand up and be counted.
    I don’t fear a race riot or anything negative. In fact, I think Madiba’s death will remind all of us what he stood for, and why we as individual South Africans must continue to advance his values and principles collectively as a nation.
    I don’t wish for Madiba’s death – in fact he could go on to live for another 10 or more years; BUT he is human, and maybe he would want to quit at this time. We will all miss him terribly, but he has done his bit for the country anbd I believe he would want each of us to make our contributions, however small it might be. The best way to honour him would be to emulate him.

  69. IT’S NATURAL THAT EVERY ONE AND EVERYTHING THAT IS LIVING SHOULD PERISH AND DIE ONE DAY BUT, NO ONE ANTICIPATE DEATH. MR MANDELA IS THE WORLD ICON, I THINK THE WORLD WOULD COME TO A STAND STILL, THERE MIGHT BE STAMPED AT MANDELA’S RESIDENCE, POSSIBLE PUBLIC HOLIDAY FOR BURRIAL OF MANDELA.

  70. Nelson Mandela like any other man on this earth is mortal, therefore his demise to a shallow minded person means something. He is just a potrait that was put up by its maker for all and sundry to see and we saw and cherish his accomplishments, as a result the world will not stop from his demise, he too just like any other man walking the earth today stands to be judged by the Gods for the works that he carried out on this earth.
    A lot can be said about him being an icon but conspiracies are abound in everything that we were made to think of him, so everyone must be at piece and mind their own business, his career was politics and he achieved a lot in it so lets mind our own business make money if we can and stop worshiping other mortile beings.

  71. i think there is going to be a civil war b2n white people and black people

  72. Pablo,

    1. The media was mandels maker!
    2. There is only one God..not gods.
    3. Romans 8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    The King James Version, (Cambridge: Cambridge) 1769.

    His career was terrorism..if that is part of politics…well maybe so.

    I do agree with your last statement – let this world stop worshipping mortal beings and hopefully also ancestors as those fools don’t even have the knowledge mandela still have today! ;)

    But like J.L. Strydom remarked, there will be a funeral, that’s all and maybe the lazy part of the population will be too glad to have a reason to call out a typical african week long funeral and period of mourning without thinking about what that will cost the country as a whole..normal for africa!

  73. Dear Dirk,how hypocrital of you,you want me(blackman)to recognise your God & yet dissing my ancestor worshipping,well,i am not a christian nor recognising it because of people like yourself.Remember,you came into my land univited & impossed your TENDENCIES…

  74. Clifford.– How come that i cannot see that Nelson Madela is such an icon and that the WHOLE world will come to a standstill when he dies? Is there something that i am missing here? When respectively Mother Theresa, Mahatma Ghandi and Winston Churchill died, the world did not hold its breath. Nelson Mandela’s fame is that he spent 27 years inprisoned by an apartheid regime which erroneously has always been regarded by you South Africans as worst than the Nazis under Hitler, even though thankfully it did not hang Mandela for treason. Can anyone anyone of you worshippers name anything else that Mandela accomplished out of the ordinary in life compared to the three that i have mentioned above? The man is grossly overated as judged by the rest of the world. It is only in your South Africa that Mandela is regarded as a saint and a god to be idolised and grovellingly worshipped. Much the same as your great president Jacob Zuma is regarded as a god and is worshipped sycophantically by all South Africans. Hence the reason why he has never been brought to court and tried for his alleged crimes.

  75. These blacks are the elite class who spat at the downtrodden blacks and so represent their own interests of aggrandisement and pretention.

    The Mandela of the 50`s was indeed a hero however the one of the 90`s is a different one altogether and it seem to me his idolisers speak of the 50`s mandela because the 90`s mandela is discreditted and disgraced.his turn-about in swopping the goals of the struggle for red mercs and mansions and his debt to his benefactoras which was to be driven by them and deliver to them,the exile notorious camp,petrol=bombings and necklaces of those they purported to be representing and his co ntinued association with the killer of stompie,the arms deal all counts adversarially and negatively against his stature.

  76. I can only speak for myself. There is no doubt I will be sad. I will forever be grateful and continue to do my best to emulate the values he imparted to us through his actions and words. At least this way will know that him and his legacy will forever live in my heart.

  77. What values?To belong to traditions that practise gender discrimination whereby on you marriage day you will be told you are the servant of your man and no more his wife?

    A man who subscribe to the notion that no man must sleep on a separate bed with a woman in the house but must force himself onto the woman!

  78. Bieng a world icon, he will be sady missed, but who said a mortal man shall live fore ever. He will die one day and life will go on, but the credentials of the ANC will b dented.

  79. OL KID, DONT WORY BOUT THEESE CRACKS, ASK THEM WHO THEIR IDEAL POLITICIAN IS ? IT WILL BE SOME WEIRDO
    THE SO CALLED CHRISTIANITY THEY FOLLOW IS SHALLOW AS THEIR MINDS, IT IS A RELIGION THAT HAS CHANGED EVERY DAY SINCE JESUS WAS REMOOVED DIVINELY FROM THIS EARTH, THEESE SAME IDIOTS WILL BE THE FIRST OF HIS ENEMIES THE DAY HE RETURNS
    THATS THE DAY WEL SEE THE FOOLS AND LAUGH,

    AS FOR YOU TIM, WHATEVER YOU MEAN BY: A man who subscribe to the notion that no man must sleep on a separate bed with a woman in the house but must force himself onto the woman!

    IF YOU ENJOY SLEEPING WITH YOURSELF, ENJOY!!!
    HOPEFULLY THAT WAY WE WONT HAVE ANY MINI TIM’S!

  80. Curiouser and Curiouser says:

    What did Mandela do exactly to be treated as a god and a saint? His foundation has built him up as such in order to make money but he has loved in style and luxury for the last 25 years whilst milions of the very people that worship the ground he walks in, are starving. You South Africans are really quite naive, gullible and far too thick to realise this. A recent book has exposed the Mandela myth and pointed out that he is not the nice individual that he is made out to be. He details the fact that Mandela was a bully and wife beater to his first wife.

  81. OLD FASHION says:

    What happens when anybody passes over to their eternal destination GOD remains in control, HE can not die and gives us eternal life through JESUS Christ our Saviour who has bought us free from judgement. As for Madiba only he knows wether he has excepted the LORD , and we trust that he has as he is a man of peace and the Word says, Blessed are the peacemakers as they shall be called children of GOD.

  82. WE WILL HAVE A PUBLIC HOLIDAY ….AND LIFE WILL GO ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  83. thanxx!Haffy,it is my birthday today,turning 58yrs.your “upliftment” made wonders
    to my spirits… there will be life after Tat’uMandela but the people who are in “power” now will mess that life…

  84. WHAT I MEAN HAFFY IS ZUMA`S UTTERANCES DURING HIS RAPE TRIAL WHICH WERE ENDORSED BY HIS PARTY TO WHICH MANDELA IS A MEMBER MEANING THAT HE ENDORSED THEM TOO.

    MANDELA WAS NOT BUNDLED-UP AND TAKEN TO ROBBENEILAND AND SYSTEMATICALLY SENTENCED BUT WAS GIVEN A PRIVILEGED TO WHICH NOT EVEN PRESIDENTS ENJOY AND WHICH WAS FOR HIM TO BE HIS OWN LAWYER TOO.SO IF HIS STINT IN JAIL IS WHT MAKES HIM A HERO THEN IBEG TO DIFFER BECAUSE HIS RECENT CONFIRMATION THAT HE OWNED A WAR WEAPON WHICH HE BURIED AT LILIES FARM AND HIS BOMBING SPREE BEFORE HE GOT THE LIFE TERM CONFIRMS THAT HE WAS CHARGED DEMOCRATICALLY WITH TIGHT CASE AGAINST HIM!

    he has done for us it is up to us what we do with his legacy ALUTA CONTIA”"”"

  87. No doubt about it, he was great. Nevertheless he is a humanbeing and he must die – now, 2morrow or 11yrs from now. It will be a sad day for us and the world – his legacy will live on, but LIFE IS GOING ON.

  89. Hastheworldgonecrazy... says:

    @ Sithandile

    Who can I blame? My father attended school only up to Std 5. He left school in order to work to support his mother and siblings, as his father had been jailed for publishing anti-slavery articles in the newspaper he was editor of. My parents could not afford to send me to university either, and I, in turn, am unable to send my son! Whose grandparents can I blame for this? Yours, maybe? Seeing as that it all started because my grandfather tried to get your grandfather freed from slavery!

  90. He can reach more than 100 years alive Mr Tabayi!!!!!!!!

  91. Sipho Toli says:

    All of us are going to die but things Tim is saying about the Old man makes me
    wonder where he comes from not asking him to say nice things they sound so
    grudgy people like him remind me of someone who drinks poisin and hopes somebody else dies the hate he has will surely kil him

  92. Frans Letsoalo says:

    In fact if mondela dies, they must make a public holiday tilll they bury him because we are in the country of democracy because of him.

  93. Errol Wagner says:

    All South Africans will mourn together – which will bear testimony to his dream, to unite South Africa.

  94. What planet are you from Frans? How do your thought processes work?
    Anything to get out of work hey. Its spelt Mandela not Mondela. Perhaps some extra classes for you during your public holidays. Why dont you take Sipho with you?

  95. I AM NOW SATISFIED THAT BLACKS ARE UNINTELLIGBLE AND ILLITERATE VOTERS IF WHAT THEY ARE SPEWING HERE IS ANYTHING TO GO BY1i MEAN i`M WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO SAY THIS IS WHAT THEY ADMIRED HIM FOR BUT THEY JUST SING THE SWANSONG!THAT WHITEY IS ALSO PORTRAYING SOME STUPID VIEW HERE THAT HE UNITED ALL OF US BUT ASK HIM FOR PROOF AND HE`LL START TO SCRATCH HIS SKINHEAD!

  96. without Madiba acting as the brake the anc will destroy itself sooner than with him. Will be sorry to lose the great man but the sooner the anc interplodes the better for this country.

  97. OLD FASHION says:

    He that depends upon a man (human) is lost, but he who depends upon the LORD shall live forever. One man with GOD is by far in the majority and need not be concerned about the issues of this world.

  98. @Dirk and Old Fashion – You forget one thing – The Gods dont choose sides in politics. Regardless of Tata’s beliefs. He will go to his reward- he has EARNED his place in history – and he will be remembered as such. Politics dont determine heaven or hell. By your reasoning, PW Botha will be in hell too

  99. Mandela is not our God we must trust God to do his ruling not Mandela.

  100. OLD FASHION says:

    Reaper, if you saw my previous post you will notice that I mentioned Madiba is a peacemaker and the Word of God says: Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called children of God. I do have a great respect for Madiba and pray that we may have more leaders like him and De Klerk. They shook hands made peace and took the challenge and so should all of us. Division causes friction and wars but unity is strength.

  101. Mandela will always be known as the anc, while zuma will be known as its end, after his statements last week he should remember what the Beatles said about Christ, and then they lost out. So with the anc.

  102. What`s th difference between”lets fight back blacks,and going to hell”?why were there no such hullaballoo when fight black back was uttered like when goin o hell is uttered?

  103. I think that the “Night of the Long Knives” of Siener van Rensburg will not materialise and that nothing bad will happen. We will all be very sad to lose such an icon, but nobody lives forever!

  104. mickey
    And was I happy to hear about his stupid statement..if you page through my postings at http://www.boerevryheid.co.za , you will see that I was hoping such a mistake ( based on the scripture below ) would come from the ANC so that it’s end can come soon so us whitey’s can be free from these heathen supressors with their affirmative action again!

    The scripture below speak of what will happen when the people of the Lord cease to follow Him..and then eventually the enemies of the Lord’s people will make the mistake mentioned in verse 27 just like zuma eventually made…good for you fool zuma, I have been waithing for that to happen!

    1Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. 2My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: 3Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God. 4He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. 5They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation. 6Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath he not made thee, and established thee?
    7Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee. 8When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel. 9For the LORD’S portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance. 10He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye. 11As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: 12So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him. 13He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock; 14Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape.
    15But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation. 16They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger. 17They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. 18Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.
    19And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters. 20And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith. 21They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation. 22For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. 23I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. 24They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust. 25The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.
    26I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men: 27Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and the LORD hath not done all this. 28For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. 29O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!
    The King James Version, (Cambridge: Cambridge) 1769.

  105. ol’kid

    I missed your stupid remark….nobody came to your country..

    1. you blacks never had a country. You were just around without a deeds ofiice, a borderline or anything to show where your country actually was
    2. you moved down from the north and we moved up from the south
    3. it is said that south africa is the “cradle of human kind” wich mean we all originated from here, black as well as whites, so the heel are you to say that we are not allowed to return to the graves of our ancestors? is this not an african right and reason for land claims?
    4. this whole planet belong to the Creator of it and He can give it to whom He wants…to hell with you, foolish heathen savage!

  106. F U DIRK. YOU PINK POOPHOLES. WHERE IS YOUR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN PINK BASTARDS? YOU CAME FROM SOUTH FROM WHICH CONTINENT AND WE CAME FROM NORTH FROM WHICH CONTINENT? WE ARE AFRICANS AND YOU ARE EUROPEANS, KLAAR. YOU ORIGINATED FROM BABOONS AS YOUR SCIENTISTS CLAIM BUT WE AFRICANS WERE CREATED BY GOD.

  107. OLD FASHION says:

    Politics is busy destroying people and the world, that is why JESUS will come back to restore.. HIS Sacrifice was more then enough for those who except HIM as their Saviour they shall meet HIM in the air and always be with HIM. A good ruler is one who has his trust only in the LORD and receives his wisdom from GOD. A righteous ruler gives and do not take. We are told that in these last days people will be ruthless, greedy, immoral , no faith in the LORD and that is a sure recipy for total destruction. I thank and praise the LORD that we do have many true believers that follow the teachings of JESUS and are praying for peace and protection against the evil forces. God is faithfull and HE is protecting HIS Kingdom children. We have no fear because GOD is always near those who seek and serve HIM.

  108. Heita! Dirk,you are a pathetic racist individual,who knows ZERO ’bout MYSTORY not HISTORY…stay as lame brained as you are…

  109. ol’kid

    1. If I am racist, it’s because of pathetic black racist, fraudulant, corrupt, murdering, raping, stealing, God and truth hating ancestor worshippers like you who only see your “MYSTORY” and nothing else!
    2. Your ancestors never found a way to write things down…therefore there was no african history to be found anywhere until the whitey’s returned.
    3. The bushmen draw some pictures on the walls of the caves they lived in and that tell a story of bigger black hooligans robbing their country from them by killing them and driving the poor bushmen into the dessert! So,by calling this place “my land” makes you a liar too!

    Reaper

    1. I know that PW Botha became a “born again child of God” shortly before his departure to heaven.
    2. There is just one God, not gods.
    3. Mandela never earned nothing! it was the media who wanted to give you a hero to make you feel good…for that very simple reason the media promoted that fraudulent heathen allah-worshipping obama freak into the white house as well….strange, as far as I know, he never had the whitehouse windows tinted black like that of an africa-taxi ;)
    4. True believers like me are Theocrats, not democrats…so politics may have something to do with going to hell or not. ;)

    sithandile

    It was because of the Afrikaners that there were schools available to your grand parents…hastheworldgonegrazy seems to be english…maybe you made one accurate remark in your life!

    Zuma is not SOUTH AFRICA S problem,it is the people that elected sush a idiot to run this country that is the problem!!!!!!

  111. HEY RIO,where did you crawl out? A big rock or did this rock fall on your head.take note,BABOONS,GORILLAS,MONKEYS are black skin toned and if you say humans come from the Primate race,then you are definitely insulting your own black race and they should definitely punish you via winnie Mandela style,One big tractor tyre ,petrol and matches.
    Anyway to all,enough of Mandelas coming death,hoping he is not reading all this shit.The man must be having nightmares.

  112. zuma is a puppet! answers to a committee who tell him what to say and he says it. of course when in the morning he greets you his anc masters say he was quoted out of context. his latest statement was taken out of context, so how come the smoke makers dont tell us what the context really was. no they can’t after all they are just as ignorant. Hey rio, you are so ignorant you must be one of them!

  113. Boerkie
    Baboons, Monkeys and Gorillas in Africa are black but the ones in Europe are white just like people living there. Have you seen a black baboon in Europe, definately no because their skin colour is white or pinkish like white people.

  114. RIO,like Malema,you must carry a roll of shit paper under your mouth to wipe your mouth every time you open it to speak or utter shit,there are no monkeys, baboons or gorillas in Europe,only those in zoos and they all came from Africa.
    The only pink Monkeys you get are in Asia living in the Snow covered mountains near hot water springs. You better improve on your education and general knowledge and please don`t fail your WOODWORK class as our good old shit sprouter Malema has done.
    By the way,are you going to vote ANC after the Gantry points over the high ways for you to pay for every kilometer you drive on the roads erected by the ANC government to FATTEN up The Buddies, crony`s and FAT Cats of the ANC Parliament and there FAMILIES while your parents live in SQUALOR in the rural areas,UNLESS YOU ARE A FATCAT as well.

  115. good point RIO, its the dumb whites who try to make us beleive the crap of evolution, its their theory , well and good for them, good luck to them and they aped mothers ,fathers and grand parents
    BORKIE, LISTEN YOU MADE IT UP, SO ONLY MUMMY IS A BABOON NOT MINES AND NOT MY AFRICAN BROTHERS, WE WERE CREATED BY GOD

  116. By the way RIO,white indicates pureness and higher intelligence and black as evil.It is people of your intellect that has turned me into a BIG Racist.And for your information i grew up with the Zulu kids as a Durbanite and can speak Zulu and still have many Zulu friends here on the South Coast,You “BLOODY” fool, you spy. Absolute disgrace for your Race. Close your mouth and save your self being ridiculed by your own people.

  117. Haffy, did fail your wood work class as well,go back to school buddy

  118. boerkie, you dont seem very bright, you use abusive language to win an argument, why dont you talk some sense.
    yeah i failed woodwork just like MR Malema, and you know what ? you can put head up ur Arse and whistle as you can do nothing,coz hes going to be your future president,
    OW W8, YOU CAN DO SOMETHING.
    PACK UR BAGS N GO BACK TO EUROPE YOU LEECH

  119. ALL politicians are puppets. Verwoerd was the last one that was not a puppet and for that reason got killed to get him out the way to be replaced with a free mason puppet!
    Verwoerd was said to be racist…no! He was not but had the only workable solution in mind…every kind should rule themselves – the only way to freedom and the only way to keep the public satisfied. Whites will NEVER be satisfied with black rule and blacks will NEVER be satisfied with white rule. To take it even further, Afrikaners will never be satisfied with english rule and a zulu will never be satisfied shangane rule..these are the facts of life!

    Deut. 17:14When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that are about me; 15Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.
    The King James Version, (Cambridge: Cambridge) 1769.

  122. dumbarse malema as president. you must be joking. I’m willing to bet his mother is still changing his nappies, I just wish she will put one nappy under his (or should I say “it’s”) lower lip to catch the crap he speaks. As for zuma I see he had to read his state of the nation speech direct from the notes given him by his controlling masters. I wonder if he knows what he said, I’m sure he doesn’t know how in hell will the government get it right after all they cannot hide the fact that they fiddled the matric marks, can you imagine the rsa with a president that failed woodwork?

  123. Quite correct Mickey,sad to think of a president with no woodwork pass,the results are presently clear,him being president of the ancyl, what chaos,only action,drinking Heineken and JW Blue Label and TOY-TOY.
    Have you ever seen this guy with a women or heard Malema having a girl friend.
    Me thinks he is a “agter die kop kyker” in english “i think he could be GAY,not in being happy. Something to ponder about.
    My apologies to Madiba for discussing this kind of crap on this page.
    No more posting on this page from me after this one.Could not resist this one.

  124. Boertjie

    As jy mandela “madiba” noem is jy net een van die gebreinspoelde afrikaners van vandag – vent is ‘n afgetrede terroris wat geglo het een man een stem kan werk in idiote-land waarvan jy waarskynlik ‘n burger is.

    Ons bid al van 1973 vir ons land en afgewaterde godsdienstigheid, ons is ook nie in n charismatiese kerk nie want hulle het geen beheer oor hulle lede nie en offer net melk kos. Sterk aanhangers van Luther en Calvyn en ons glo dat al die wedergeborenes die kerk van Christus is, Die gebou is net n bymekaar kom plek. Baie interesante studie het ons ontdek dat GOD self regerings ingestel het en die nasies se grense gele het. Politiek en geloof loop saam , of die regering dien en raadpleeg die HERE of hulle volg hulle eie bose planne en afgode. Die Bybel is baie duidelik oor die regeerdes of koning wie die HERE gedien het dat hulle voorspoed in die land gehad het. Die wie nie die HERE gedien het nie was konstant in chaos en oorlog gedompel. God het die Leviete as priesters aangestel, Rigters as leiers en al die wette vir Moses gegee. Politiek kan nie van GOD geskei word nie want HY hou die nasies dop en gee voorspoed aan die wie HOM dien. Dit is ook baie duidelik in hierdie laaste dae waarin ons is dat die afvalligheid oorhand oor die mens het en ons moet net nie mismoedig word en ons blydskap in die HERE verloor nie want HY het belowe dat HY met ons is tot aan die voleinding. Ons sal SY Heil en Lof verkondig tot HY ons kom haal. Ons is die sout en lig van die aarde en nie die hamer en sekel nie.

  126. OLD FASHION
    Ja God het riglyne gestel aangaande die regerings en die charismatics en meeste kerke van vandag sal onvoorwaardelik mense breinspoel om onvoorwaardelik aan die regering gehoorsaam te wees terwyl dit nie ‘n Deut. 17:15 en verder bedoelde regering is nie! Die dinge leer die “kerke” die mense met die oog op die toekomstihge “nuwe wereld orde” van een nasie en een taal en een godsdiens omdat sulke “kerke” eintlik die anti-Chris is want die anti-Chris het vanuit die kerk uit gegaan – 1 Joh. 2:19
    Hierdie selfde moedswillige leuenaars vergeet ook met graagte van Deut 32:8 en Handeling 17:26 tot chaos en almal se ondergang want die satan is ‘n mense moordenaar van die begin af!

  127. @dirk, old fashion… please keep your comments in English

  128. dirk, as jou huis taal Afrikaans is dan gebruik jy dit. Die C.S. is te onnosel om jou blog te verstaan nou speel hy groot meneer. Miskien wag hy dat onze vriend julius vir hom sal kom bystaan. Gaan jy aan ou maat, gebruik jou Afrikaans and I will use my English and in spite of the anc we will have a nation.

  129. THE ANC MUST BAN THIS TERIBLE LANGUAGE, IT IS A SYBOL OF APARTHEID, WHAT YOU SAY MR MALEMA ? TAKE IT OUT THE SYLABUS IN SCHOOLS, BAN IN PUBLIC, THOSE RECISTS WHO WAN TO SPEAK IT MUST DO SO IN THEIR OWN HOMES!
    VIVA MALEMA!!!!

  130. Mandela had spent 27 years in an African jail he would not have lived so long!

  131. Haffy, where do you come from? Obviously from some place where there is no schools. Your language is utterly rediculous. Rather write in your home language and may be we can make sense of YOUR racist remark.

  132. yesterday never come back

  137. OLD FASHION says:

    Tim I agree wholeheartedly FW is a man of GOD’s heart and more so was his father whom we knew personally. FW ‘s father was never selected as a minister although he was in the senate , on account of his beliefs that the current system of those days was wrong and needed change for equal rights, amazingly his son FW managed to do so. They were members and FW is still a member of our church nomination that agrees that everyone is subject to his or her own choice but the onus is on Kingdom children to serve as JESUS teaches us through the
    Comforter and Healer the HOLY SPIRIT. God has a perfect plan for everybody’s life but we have to submit and accept HIM before we can fullfill our joyfull callling. Only in our calling will we experience true and everlasting joy. We still pray for you and I know that God has a great plan for your life and being as patient as HE is HE is waiting for you to answer HIS call.

  138. I think Madela’s legacy was a great one and many people will tend to warm up to the issue if he dies and he will be remembered one of the celebrated horoes among the African presidents & across the globe.

  139. Although not a president but a prime minister, JAN SMUTS, was South Africa’s greatest leader. He was a world stateseman far ahead of any of South Africa’s later leaders including Mandela. Smuts was a modest man who led South Africa to victory during two world wars. He had also physically endured the hardships of a guerrilla general on commando during the Boer war against the British, Smuts was one of the founders of the old League of Nations and later its successor the present day United Nations. When prime minister, even during WW2 when the Nazis wanted him dead, Smuts, as did his friend Churchill, had one solitary bodyguard. A police inspector who also acted as his chaufuer.
    Zuma today is believed to have 24 bodyguards surrounding his holy body 24 hours. The man Zuma is so frightened of the people because of his lavish life style as most African leaders are. Including Gadaffi,
    Compared to Smuts, what did Mandela do exactly.? Smuts was not an apartheid man and when he lost the election against the Nationalist party in 1948, he retired to his modest little farm in Irene on a small government pension where he died two years later. Since standing down as president Mandela has lived in pure luxury.
    Even this ANC cannot ridicule that great man Jan Smuts.

  140. To Dukie 743, today the Academy Awards are being announced and there should be an award for you for the Truth. Smuts was the man, capable of all things. The GREATEST of all South Africans. A man to be admired by all. I wont even mention the names of our presidents on the same page.

  141. only GOD knows since he’s the one who keep him alive for so many years and allowed him to change our beutiful change

  142. Sthembiso Mabaso says:

    To even debate about the killing of white or blacks is evil talk. Anybody who kills another person for the cause of racial hate has the same mentality as Adolf Hitler, Sadam Hussain and Osama Bin Laden. All 3 of these men got what was coming to them for doing these things & you may not get whats coming to you here on this earth but you will get it when you are rejected by god. Mandela fought for peace and unity & to go behind his back after he dies & do the exact opposite is disrespecting Mandela. We no longer live in the stone ages. We are soldiers of God not soldiers of satan.

  143. @ Sthembiso M You are right, if people just do as the verb says: Do unto others as you want them to do unto you what a remarkable country this would be. I have a black nursing sister that comes around weekly to do checkups on me and I look forward to those days. We laugh and chat together and even she says it is so pleasant to come here she also looks forward to the next session. She mentioned that she lives according to that verb.
    How can we all leave a legacy , it is by going out of our way to promote peace among all.

  144. Manthata says:

    1 Billion tourist will come to South Africa, At least 5000 presidents around the world will come, some 30 billion t-shirts with Nelson Mandela’s head on it will be sold within 3 days, Remember that one president will come with a convoy of at least 30 people or more. car rental companies. Nelson Mandela foundation will be the richest foundation in the world, every news channel in the world will want to buy the right to show the burial. The greatest legacy Mandela will leave for this country is a foreign cash injection of at least 100 billion dollars, I said it on the business side of it. Politically, He will leave nothing

  145. sibusiso dingani says:

    definately the whole world will be mourning the demise of our egalitarian vetaran of our struggle, things will be upside down for a while in this country. we will miss him forever his contribution for democracy, peace and harmony

  146. Wordu Steven says:

  155. Boerkie d wyt,wt r u rili yappiin abt,man I dnt gv a shit if weda u gt me or nt•

  156. Life will go on as usual for some of us.ppl still live in poverty and he is comfortable whever he is. Freedom my foot- who knows he could be dead already and we don’t know. I think he died just after the world cup if not I wanna see him personally. No offence

  157. what do you think will happen. just like how people thought the country will fail in 94, then again in when thabo took over, then again when thabo got fired, then again when zuma took over, then gain 2010 world cup, then again after 2010 world cup…. you get the point i’m sure!

  158. CHARLES CHAUKE says:

    IF MANDELA DIES IT WILL BE HIS END IN THIS WORLD BUT WE WILL NOT FORGET HIM BECAUSE HE IS AND WILL ALWAYS BE OUR HERE. THE RECENT PRESIDENT WILL ANNOUNCE THE DAY HE DIED AS A MANDELA DAY

  159. We cannot forget him because there must be literally thousands of nonuments, statues , streets and buildings named after Mandela. He is not a saint, Never ever has there been so much honour bestowed on a one politician. What did he do exactly? Yes he served 18 years on Robben Island and thats it. This idolisation of one solitary person is pathetic in my opinion. Mother Theresa never had a day named after her but she lived and died helping the poor. Now there was a true saint. According to one book Mandela beat and bullied his forst wife. Hardly a world statesman.

  160. 1. All white people will be kicked out of South Africa
    2. Those who have the mandela coins will become rich!
    3. Every house hold in E.C will finally get the R500 they’ve been patiently waiting for
    4. Xhosas will have no say in parliament anymore
    5. All zimbabweans will be moered back to their country INCLUDING mandelas wife (halleluja)

  161. Infidel says:

    F*%$ the boer and mandela, the boer sold us out and mandela is a terrorist. The blacks talk about the night of the knives but it is just talk. If it did happen the boer would run like they did with terblanch in bop when they left 3 mates behind to get killed. The blacks dont have the balls to carry out this night of the knives as they are all talk. Just glad I got out of that shithole as it will become another african waste land.

  162. IloveBiltong says:

    Why would there be riots? If the criminals and rebellers start chaos in SA after Mandela dies – that means they wont be standing up for what he fought for… so it doesnt make sense… not like anything is stopping people from doing breakouts now – not as if before an attack they thing “hmm Madiba woulnt like what Im doing…”
    Theres nothin to stop chaos now so what would stop it when he dies.
    Not that the country would get any better. Here’s hoping it would, maybe 10 years later… To be honest its a little scary thinking of those first rumors of white people being attacked but I know there is kindness and peaceful poeple who do follow Madiba’s values.

  163. Everybody has to die some day, it is just the stupid nature of the human race to think that others are superior to themselves. My mom is older then Mandela and when she goes she leaves a legacy of being compassionate to all, helped where ever she was needed, always laughed, never did anyone any harm and she still helps as much as she can.
    Guess many of you can say the same about your parents.

  164. South Africa is just another African country that was doing very well while the whites were running it then the stupid boers gave it away. It will now just become another waste land like all other countries ion Africa with the blacks in control. As far as I am concerned I hope the blacks do what they say they will do so the rest of the world can see what savages they are. But they dont have the guts to do it as they are all talk.

  165. we will be free at last

  166. Boerkie says:

    Let us wait and see when the day arrives. I Am ready to defend my family and Myself.

  167. Eish, violence is war , war is a crime against humanity people dont want peace, they want possessions that can not buy peace.

  168. Is that old fool still alive, I am sure he is been kept alive just to piss me off. The bottle of champaine I have waiting is getting old but it will have to wait.

  169. It appears he IS Dead, because not once have I heard him CRITICIZING any ANC Leaders for NOT following his POLICY and them stealing the Country BLIND with there FRAUD and CORRUPTION and how they NEGLECT all the Child aids victims and ROBBING the poor of the POOR,…..UNLESS he IS alive but CONDONES it, or he is Stuffed and MOUNTED somewhere. ANC TROPHY.

  170. Jacob Zuma would ask the commission of inquiry to invistigate and Graca Michel would hunt another President to marry.

  171. slim dueach says:

    To hell with the bastarde.

  172. Finally we will see the end of a terrorist who killed innocent people.

  173. I will organize the largest party our neighbourhood has ever seen

  174. Mandela wont die for one reason only and that is that the anc powers that be will not accept it, and therefor it cannot happen!

  175. koermoor says:

    Fuck him he is just a stuped murderer that killed innocent people, he deserves to go to hell. I will be happy if he is dead

  176. DIRK (note capital letters) says:

    All the people who clapping hands must realise that you are trying to elevate yourselves. Mandela never made himself better than others. He remained true and genuine. Idiots such as dirk(note the small letters) are trying to elevate themselves. I am a white afrikaner . I am proud of what Mandela stands for

  177. Dukie 743 says:

    @ DIRK– What does Mandela stand for exactly? You South Africans have definitely oversold your Mandela. The man is not a saint and it is pathetic that you South Africans are treating him as such. Get a life. Mandela yes is a very nice old chap but a saint or god? Ridiculous. Your late leader Jan Smuts was a real world statesman. A humble man with no airs. Your man Zuma will be the next leader to be grovingly idolised and worshipped. You’ll see.

  178. I just sit back and laugh at people, specially these socalled charity funds using peoples names like Diana and Madiba. These funds are not given by these peoples but by the public and companies, for tax deduction purposes. One may admire or detest someone’s actions, but to idolize them is foolish as many others given the opportunity would possibly do the same or even better. There are many humble compassionate people out there that do more with the little they have then some who gives from their surpluses .

  179. I would sit at home and think,”I wish people would mourn me that much.”

  180. Politics and our politicians is like a tree wanting to grow from the top to the bottom. A tree starts at it roots and the bottom branches are the strongest as it has to carry the growth until it can produce fruit or shade to shelter under. Change our leaders from the root with people who have the expertise , knowledge , good sound ethics and uncorrupt with high morals and we can become the best country on earth.

  181. Nelson Mandela was admired by the universal young generation, so watch out, there is a young generation President in the making—from the young kids that admirered the deeds of President Mandela—VIVA MANDELA VIVA!!!!!!!!!

  182. we will miss him and remember him always fuck wat the rest says idiots url will still suffer

  183. There will be absolute chaos!!!!

  184. The proof will be in the pudding. The truth of the freedom of democracy will be revealed. How strong was Mandela’s influence on the people of South Africa. The division within the ANC will rear its ugly head………….Who will triumph only in a year or two we will know the if Mandela beliefs for a united nation has defeated all odds. My advise to white South Africans is to immigrate if you can, from the chaos that is about to come upon them. Sad but true

  185. So now he is really dead! He died last night, 05 December 2013. You will always be special in our hearts and we are proud to be South Africans becuase of your spirit. Lala ngoxolo Yem Yem!

  186. Thank fcuk he is gone, now I can have my bottle of wine and be happy this terrorist is gone. I wont miss him, he was a con and just another anc clown.

  187. Oh my gawd this article posted in 2011 and yet all this happens now in 2013. Oh my gawd
