Mandela Becoming a Deity?

Nelson Mandela 'Man of Honour'

Nelson Mandela ‘Man of Honour’

One of my uncles mentioned after my last post that it looked like Mandela was fast becoming becoming a deity. So why is that? Why do we approach the subject of a mere mortal with such reverence?

Let’s have a quick fly – by at history:

‘For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others’. Nelson Mandela

‘No one is born hating another person for the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than it’s opposite’. Nelson Mandela 


Jacob Zuma 'Man of.... well who the hell knows!'

Jacob Zuma ‘Man of…. well who the hell knows!’

‘God expects the ANC to rule this country because we are the only organization which was blessed by pastors when it was formed. It is even blessed in heaven. That is why we rule until Jesus comes back. We should not allow anyone to govern our City (Cape Town) when we are ruling the country’. Jacob Zuma

‘A shower would minimise the risk of contracting the aids disease’. Jacob Zuma

Can you see the difference?

There are many hundreds of quotes to choose from, but any selection chosen shows the difference immediately.

The spirit of these men is constant.

Nelson Mandela encouraged, taught and when necessary disciplined his people.

Zuma on the other hand hasn’t had the time. Between the accusations of rape, negligence, corruption and a multitude of marriages, the man is just brained out!

After suffering for so long one would have expected Mandela to have ravaged the people and riches of this country as pay – back on his release, but he didn’t.

Zuma on the other hand seems to have picked up the slack on that one…

Anyone feel like a shower?

    Wow. Zuma is the epitome of an American politician; the people who should be occupying our prisons. Well written!
