    Funny how The United States considered Nelson Mandela a terrorist until 2008… and now he is regarded as some sort of saint.
    If he did what in did in the present time, he was be labelled a terrorist. margaret thatcher was right to label him one in my opinion.

    Terrorism is Terrorism people.

    Why is it that every time someone dies you post the celebrities thoughts on the death? Why can’t you just make a respectful post about the person who passed saying RIP without enfolding everyone else’s memories.

    Why the sadness? He was 95 years old. South Africans are celebrating a life well lived and so should we. RIP sir Mandela

    The truth says:

    You sound uneducated and delusional after sharpeville , massacre where 69 Africans were shot by the racist Afrikaans regime Mandela began to state that violence was necessary for freedom to be achieved .

    You sound totally naive and disrespectful and cannot live anywhere except Russia or Eastern Europe with those type of views.

    Because if you don’t you sound even more stupid, as the western civilisations of uk and USA were built upon oppressing black people and ethnic minorities.

    Get an education!

    RIP Nelson
    I agree there´s nothing to be sad about. Just to celebrate what he achieved. It was time. My first time hearing about him was long ago when Whitney Houston did a huge concert in his honour in South Africa around 1994 or so. Memorable.
