nelson mandela dies at 95

This is such a tragic loss…

Former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela has passed away at the age of 95.

Current South African President Jacob Zuma made the extremely sad announcement late Thursday:

"He is now resting. He is now at peace. Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father. What made Nelson Mandela great was precisely what made him human. We saw in him what we seek in ourselves."

The global symbol for human rights who emerged from prison after 27 years to lead South Africa out of decades of apartheid battled various health issues in recent months, including a recurring lung infection that led to many hospitalizations.

    Re: shaygirl1309 – Get used to it then. I have a feeling this is going to be a long one. He was a good man though. I personally think he deserves it.

    He was a bloody terrorist! People forget so quickly. He was involved in premeditated bombings and murders. So what if he changed his mind when in prison and denounced his previous beliefs? Once a terrorist, always a terrorist. South Africans were desperate to have someone to worship and since this dude made headlines they clutched onto him. He figured, and quite rightly, that terrorist turned politician is the way to go (like those born again Christians in prison sham) simple as that. Then, he was just riding the gravy train enjoying life of luxury (legally this time) allowing others to write his speeches and do all the other stuff politicians do. Try to find out more about this asshole before glorifying him.
    This aside, he was old. He died. So what!? Everyone eventually does. Especially this old!

    its amazing he lived that long. The average lifespan in most african countries is 40 to 60 according to the WHO. He was a great man who broke down the walls of an oppressor but its kind of embarrassing as an earthling that while world society was focusing on apartheid the world completely ignored black on black sudanese slavery (the "arabs" there are black) and muslim on black slavery in places like mauritaniaaaaaa (blacks were enslaved there during the apartheid era and were considered property that could be willed to your children). The world proved it cares about human rights if your abruiser doesnt have brown skin.

    Re: Re: Emmanuel – He did things like kidnap women and children and bomb train stations and places filled with unrelated civilians… I don't know what they called that back then, but it's called terrorism now.

    SO WHAT, HE WAS 95
    THAT'S LONGER THAN ALOT OF OTHER PEOPLE'S LIFESPANS
    WHO CARES

    Hum, sorry? How is this a tragic loss? The man was 95! Everybody has to go at some point, and 95 is a very good age for someone so unhealthy. He died at an advanced age, at home, surrounded with his family. Nothing tragic about that, quite the opposite actually.
    A tragic loss is either dying young or in horrible conditions, that was neither.

    Anyway, may he rest in peace. If there is one person to remember in the 20th century, it is no other than Madiba.

    Re: perez posse superfan 777 – You are so lucky, count your blessings every day. My favorite gran died when I was 17, I was devastated. Whenever I got mad at my parents I could walk half a block to her house and she would make me a Velvveeta grilled cheese and we would watch her soaps together. Gosh, I miss her so much still.
    On topic, I was so sorry to read about this earlier, RIP Mr. President.

    As a South African reading this, the comments here are pathetic and insulting,not to mention disrespectful. If you from here and grew up when apartheid was ending,you will know how much this man did for us. if it wasn't for him , I would have never got any of the privileges I have today so thank you very much for your words but I will continue to praise and mourn him even though you are sick and tired of it. and so will the rest of our country and even the world….research and read up on him before you speak or judge someone. I recommend the book "long walk to freedom". RIP Madiba
