Nelson Mandela Life Support Shut Down as Respected Humanitarian Dies Age 94? (UPDATE)

Conflicting Reports on Nelson Mandela Death at 94 (Update)

 

Addendum to the article below: We have been updated by our sources, as reflected in our many additional articles written, that Nelson Mandela was declared completely brain dead with total organ failure back in June. At that time, his family was advised to switch off his life support but they refused to do so. His condition as reported by our sources is considered legally dead by most governments. He remains on life support and machines which are breathing for him and has recently been sent home from the hospital in “critical and unstable” condition.

This is an update to the original article that I wrote last night. It has upset a lot of people and I have written an addendum with new facts that will prove our assertions that the great man is dead. If you want to read the original article please scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Despite the fact that reliable sources have revealed that after Nelson Mandela’s life support machine was shut down and he died with his family around him, the South African government continues to insist that Mandela is recovering and not dead yet. According to our sources in South Africa Nelson Mandela has died in the hospital aged 94.

We stand behind our original article and have provided the following information that has been supplied to us by our local South African sources.

Our sources have relayed to us that there is a massive cover-up being undertaken by President Zuma and the South African government. While the world still waits for official confirmation about the truth about the great man’s death, we have been informed that he has, in fact, already died.

Again, according to our South African local sources, the iconic Mandela died while he was still in the hospital for the recurring lung infection that left him in critical condition for several days.

Rumors have flooded the newspapers and the internet with several sources reporting his death days earlier in a cruel attempt to fool the public and to upset the many people who have respect for this great humanitarian. The loss of the great man will be felt across the world. Our report is an effort to reveal the truth behind the conflicting reports on Mandela’s death.

Yesterday one of our South African journalists, Laura Oneale, wrote an article questioning whether or not Nelson Mandela was still alive. He had been in the hospital 19 days for a recurring lung infection. Speculation surrounding his health continued to grow with many asking whether he was still alive or if, in fact, he had died. Authorities have thus far only confirmed that he was on a life support machine and that he remains in critical condition.

Some sources have gone so far as to say that the world-respected humanitarian is actually improving. These statements appear to be a part of the larger “smoke screen” that has South Africans calling for President Zuma to tell the truth about whether Mandela is dead or alive.

Authorities have confirmed that Nelson Mandela has been taken off his life support machine, adding fuel to the speculation that he had died. Because of this, the rumor has been spreading that Nelson Mandela died last night and that the government and his family have “kept a lid” on the news because of American President Obama’s upcoming trip to South Africa. Obviously, the president’s visit will be overshadowed by the announcement of the Nobel Prize winning Mandela.

The Nobel Prize winning humanitarian Nelson Mandela had his life support shut down after he died last night aged 94 at the end of a long battle with illness that ended with his hospitalization and finally his death. While his health problems started in 2011, it was the summer of this year when his condition worsened.

On June 8, 2013, Mandela’s lung infection worsened and he was re-hospitalized in Pretoria in  serious condition. After four days, it was reported that he had stabilized and that he remained in a “serious, but stable condition”.

While on his way to the hospital, the ambulance carrying Mandela broke down and was stranded on the roadside for 40 minutes. The South African government was criticized for the incident when it confirmed the report weeks later. President Jacob Zuma protested: “There were seven doctors in the convoy who were in full control of the situation throughout the period. He had expert medical care.”

On June 22, 2013 CBS News reported that Mandela had not opened his eyes in days and that he was unresponsive. The family began discussing just how much medical intervention should be given.

On June 23, 2013 President Jacob Zuma issued a statement saying that Mandela’s condition had become “critical.” Zuma, who was accompanied by the Deputy President of the ANC, Cyril Ramaphosa, met with Mandela’s wife Graca Machel at the hospital in Pretoria and discussed his condition.

On June 25, 2013, Cape Town Archbishop Thabo Makgoba visited Mandela at the hospital and prayed with Graca Machel Mandela “at this hard time of watching and waiting.”

On June 26, 2013, Nelson Mandela was taken off life support after his condition deteriorated further. Sources have said that the 94 year-old Mandela died last night after his life support was shut down. A medical source explained to us that no one is left on life support after 24 hours as they are then technically brain dead.

The Las Vegas Guardian Express writer Laura Oneale also wrote that in Qunu, the home town of Nelson Mandela, his family got together with the elders to discuss specific events surrounding the well-being of Mandela. It has been confirmed that they were talking about highly sensitive issues, but trying to get further information has been difficult.

Our local writer also said, “Nobody wants to talk, it is a big cover up. The family reports he is gravely ill, then Zuma tells the media Mandela is getting better. The people here in SA are upset with Zuma and don’t believe him. A lot of people are believing he is dead. [There are] Plenty of remarks about the integrity of Zuma.”

In the home town of Qunu, where Mandela will be buried, they are repairing the roads, and continue to clean up the city. Allegedly they are expecting a large contingent of journalists who will be travelling down there.

There is other “evidence” that points to Nelson Mandela having already died, like the presence of the “red blanket.” Mandela’s daughter, who was seen wearing a red blanket, and other family members were at the great man’s gravesite. It is part of Xhosa tradition that family members cover themselves with a red blanket when there has been a death in the family, not in preparation of someone dying, but only when a family member has died.

We have gotten a lot of angry remonstrations for reporting the real news as has been passed on to us from reliable sources. One source works for the government owned TV station and does not want to be named for fear of losing their job or worse. Our sources are reporting the truth, completely the opposite of what the South African government is doing.

We have been warned that if we persist in exposing the fact that Nelson Mandela has already died that it will cause severe problems for the South African government. Out local journalist has told us that “the majority of people will take to the streets to morn his death and the weeping and wailing would be a nightmare; the economy will suffer and the different tribes will make a massive drama about his death.”

Our writer also goes onto say “They have different ways of preparing and performing funerals here.”

We have also learned that a lot of the bad publicity and anger that we’ve received at the Las Vegas Guardian Express is based on “jealousy and from support for the Zuma team.” President Zuma has gone on record stating that Nelson Mandela is improving and the South African public have said that he is lying. The backlash from his “covering up” of Mandela’s death will be severe.

Our local journalist also pointed out that there have been many cases in the past of world leaders dying and the truth not being revealed for days, or even weeks. Mandela’s death, coinciding with President Obama’s visit, would be a potential security nightmare for the South African government. It has been alleged that the SA government is in talks with the US government right now regarding how and when Mandela’s death should be revealed.

Our local Journalist has been attempting to get further confirmation on Mandela’s death, but nothing is being mentioned. Our sources have said that local people believe he is dead and that the government is covering up the story. The reasons given for this cover up is the American president’s visit and the economic situation. There are rumours that the government will announce his death beginning of July and declare July Mandela month.

His birthday is on July 18.

We have been told that the government spokesperson, Mac Maharaj, had a slip of the tongue by saying the elders who were meeting in Qunu were “arranging the funeral.” It was also reported is that Zuma cancelled a trip abroad and that this indicates more evidence of a cover up or is an indication of how serious the situation is.

SABC News showed the gravediggers on television last night and this has caused the local people to now believe he is dead. People are angry and they are blaming SA President Zuma for the cover up.

We have had two sources (the second being a SA publication) confirm that Nelson Mandela has already died last night after his life support was shut down and that the respected iconic humanitarian has died age 94. It is our understanding that despite the conflicting reports on Nelson Mandela’s death, that the world respected Noble Peace Prize winning humanitarian has gone and the world will mourn his death.

While his health problems started in 2011, it was the summer of this year when his condition worsened.

In February 2011, he was briefly hospitalized with a respiratory infection, attracting international attention. He was then re-hospitalized for a lung infection and gallstone removal in December 2012. After his successful medical procedure in March 2013 did not prevent his lung infection from recurring he was briefly hospitalized in Pretoria.

On June 8, 2013, his lung infection worsened and he was re-hospitalized in Pretoria in a serious condition. After four days, it was reported that he had stabilized and that he remained in a “serious, but stable condition”.

The grandson of Nelson Mandela angrily left the meeting over a disagreement of where the former president was to be buried. Mandela’s daughter, who was seen wearing a red blanket, and other family members were at the gravesite. It has been reported that the “red blanket” is part of a tribal ceremony of the Xhosa. According to Xhosa custom the blanket is used when a family member has died.

Later in the same day, gravediggers arrived at the Mandela burial site.

Sources have confirmed that Nelson Mandela died last night after his life support was shut down and the respected iconic humanitarian has died age 94. Details of the funeral arrangements will be released when they become available.

    I think it is a political move where JZ and co (or JZ anc) will use the announcement of Madiba’s death to stir-up emotional heartache and loss just before the 2014 voting. I think that it is a ploy to get people to vote with their emotions rather than using their democratic right.
    Sad to think that the elected leaders will stoop so low,

    When are the people going to wake up? The government has been lying to us for ages but we still want the lie to become truth. We have a corrupt government who gives in to corrupt leaders and now corrupt landowners who are not even South African Citizens. When are we going to smell the roses?

    I have never an article so badly written and irresponsible. There isn’t a single piece of evidence presented here for the death of Mr Mandela. Covering up Mr Mandelas death would do a great deal of harm to the government, why would they try do that? Mr Obama isn’t reason enough! The level of poverty in this article is too much.

    Interesting to see how popular this article still is. We have heard zilch since he was released from hospital, so it does make one wonder. Wouldn’t put anything past that little tyrant Zuma.

    It’s obvious what is going on…
    1) They had to take him home so they could control access to him.
    2) The necessary plastic surgery has been performed on the person selected to be his body double, but it will take some time to heal up properly.
    3) The replacement Nelson Mandela is currently in training to perfect the voice and mannerisms.

    Expect a public appearance from the new and improved Madiba at the next opportune political gathering.

    I’m a retired Afrikaans journalist in South Africa and I’m grateful to have access to the Guardian Express. Our own media are way back in the old apartheid era when Afrikaans newspapers accepted official statements as truth. Why do I say so? I got the following from SAPA (SA news agency) who concluded their story with this:

    “Yesterday, Maharaj said that ‘most media’ had been ‘notably responsible’.

    “We thank them also for the maturity and understanding that all have in general displayed.

    “He said the public needed to give Mandela and his family ‘the necessary private space’ to allow his care to continue.”

    This is not a news site – it is a Blog. And the bloggers are getting 25% of advertising on their articles.

    The greed shown, by pushing these fake stories by fake journalists is a terrible shame.

    They are nothing by bloggers with eggs on their faces.
