I have been stumped yet again by my fellow South Africans this morning. I have no hope for the future of this country. (And then I’m not saying anything about Malema’s new political party and his ideologies . . .)
Taking into account that tomorrow is Nelson Mandela‘s 95th birthday and he’s been on life support in hospital for a few weeks now:
The question on Facebook by a retail store this morning:
Tomorrow marks 95th birthday of Nelson Mandela. What birthday wishes do you have for Tata Madiba?
Some of the answers:
* Long life madiba
* Speedy recovery
* Recovery in such a way that he goes back to his home and sort things out between his children.
* Speedy recory,,,,
* For him to be realized from his hospital bed, GET WELL SOON CDE
* To get well as possible. Bed in not a place for him bt home its where i want him.
* Long live tata long live
* Speedy recovery…
* Long Life Tata. Love u.
* best wishes and quality of life.
He’s 95 and you wish him a long life?
fuck Really? And to be realized from his bed? And to go and sort out things between his children? His grown and greedy children? HE must go and do it?
fuckin’ sick unwell?
Let the man rest, for God’s sake. Let him go!
Most of us won’t even see 80, never mind 95.
My wish for Nelson Mandela is peace. And to let go, he’s done enough. Thank you Gramps.
