This is a sensitive topic and I will therefore try my best to be caring about it. My heart does go out to Mandela’s family and country as well. He truly is a great man and his legacy will live on for generations to come.
A lot of speculation is being said about the condition of Mandela and that he is already dead. The 94 year old man with a lung infection is truly on his death bed. It is so sad that the whole world is just waiting for the announcement. Many reporters and journalists are being referred to as vultures as they camp outside the hospital waiting for the announcement.
However, what would be the reason for them extending this great man’s misery and keep him on machines longer than he needs to be? I believe it is because of the Obama visit that is to come soon. Just think, if Mandela was to die, that would be the biggest news! It would overshadow Obamas visit by far. Thus forgetting the reason why he visited in the first place, which is to prove to the world that relations between Africa and the United States are good.
Well this theory is yet to be proven. Obama is currently in Tanzania then he will go down to South Africa. I f things go according to plan, Mandela should pass away some time on Saturday. This is a sad fact, however, if you watch 24, fixer or any other political drama, you must know they really hide a lot from the public.
Guess only time will tell.
