Nelson Mandela ‘Conspiracy’ Lingers On

Nelson Mandela
South Africa – The Nelson Mandela ‘conspiracy’ lingers on as the world waits for the wrapping up of whether he is dead or alive. At this point, the question is not whether he is dead or alive, but whether he is actually dead or still being kept “alive” by machines that artificially maintain basic bodily functions. On June 8, this year, Nelson Mandela was admitted to a Pretoria hospital and diagnosed with severe respiratory problems. Spending nearly three months in an intensive care unit at the age of 95 is difficult. Sporadic updates from the Government and family members always referred to his condition as critical but stable. During his stay in hospital, various reports were issued regarding Nelson Mandela, his health, his family and his death. Surprisingly, he was released from the hospital on September 2, to “recover” at his Houghton home, where an intensive care unit had been installed.

The flurry of media reports while Mandela remained in hospital gathered momentum and caused people all over the world to reflect on the man’s legacy. Since his departure from hospital, there have been almost no updates in the media regarding his health status. It is almost three months since his recover-at-home plan started and not a blink of news from the government or family.  The public interest began to wane. There were two possible answers; he was dead or being kept “alive” on life support. There is no other convincing evidence to support any other reason.

Since his move from hospital to his Houghton home, the South African media have issued no relevant updates on his health matters. Many other Mandela-related topics were published, such as  the premiere of the movie “The long walk to freedom” which received extensive coverage. His daughters and other family members were mentioned, but no indication was given as to whether Nelson was alive.

Nelson Mandela is worshiped in a cult trend and remains the heroic prisoner who fought against the apartheid injustices. He will always be remembered as a man who led a country from the brink of a civil war to democracy.  The Nelson Mandela legacy will continue as a part of South African history for future generations. His life portrayed as a saint and a man revered and treated like a god. This out of the ordinary following from all around the world remains to this day and his followers want to know the truth. The Mandela name is synonymous with world-renowned leaders and will remain a prominent feature in all media related stories. Thus, the renewed interest has finally sparked the South Africa Media to ask a question regarding his health.

The world focused on his greatness, his contribution to democracy and gave him a platform to become a hero. Nelson Mandela paved the way for his government to lead South Africa in a democratic manner, yet failed to teach them the right true democratic point. After his retirement from public life, Mandela remained a prominent figure in all the current government policies and supported the new leaders. Yet as the years rolled by and the obvious corruption, violent crime levels, and poverty overtook the country, Mandela did not object to their governance. We seem to forget that the iconic Nelson Mandela was once a terrorist too.

While we do not focus on his involvement in bombings and terrorist activities during the struggle, we now recall his life experiences with a new frenzy and evaluate the goodness rather than the evil. Nelson Mandela is and will always remain a key factor for the control of South Africa by the current political party the African National Congress (ANC). As his health deteriorated over the years, the corrupt government was more concerned with pilfering the wealth of the country and establishing extraordinary wealth for themselves and family members. The Mandela family became extremely wealthy. His name became a trademark earning millions for the family. Yes, Nelson Mandela was an icon, a public figure who was regarded as a supreme individual. His worshipers applaud him as a supernatural being. Emphasizing so much attention on one person is not suitable, it creates a frenzy among his followers who become blinded to his natural faults and stay brainwashed into believing what they are told. A typical example would be how Mandela suffered for 27 years in prison. Once freed, the focus on his suffering during those years was blown out of proportion by people. The world forgets there are others, who have suffered worse fates than that, and that Mandela was a murderer, he was no innocent being.

The consequences of revealing the truth and the implications of what the Nelson Mandela demigod creation could create will be an enormous problem for the government, his family and the select few who already know. Nelson Mandela could be hooked up to machines and kept “alive” for years and it will only be for one reason; to keep the ANC in power. With the general elections taking place next year, it would be detrimental to the ANC to announce his death; it would mean a loss of millions of votes.

The Nelson Mandela health conspiracy will linger on until after the next election and the ANC have secured a victory for another five years.

    every soldier who ever fought in a war was a murderer…. would these soldiers be killing other soldiers with guns, or unarmed civilians, women and children, would these soldiers also use car bombs to be detonated at peak periods to kill the most unarmed civilians and children? Have you ever read about the church street bombings? both black and white civilian men, women and children died and lost limbs? Are we to forgive bin laden next and put him on a pedestal? how about gaddaffi, the media have done a great job of making a murderer of innocent unarmed men women and children into a martyr, they say you can fool some of the people some of the time but not all the people all the time, with this story they have fooled a lot of people for a long time.

      The apartheid regime was going to lose in one way or another, because they were acting with more and more insanity as time went along back in the 1970′s and 1980′s. Given the fact that the apartheid regime had guaranteed its own demise, it was a good thing they lost to the African National Congress and not to some entity that did not believe in racial equality and democracy. In the days when there was apartheid in South Africa, there were plenty of groups in the wings waiting to take power that did not believe in democracy or racial equality.
      With the democratic institutions that were brought into existence in South Africa through the efforts of the African National Congress, the people of South Africa have a chance to repair the damages that were done to their country by years of apartheid rule. If the South African people come to a decision collectively that the incumbent African National Congress has failed to live up to the promise of the revolution, they have the ability to go peacefully to the polls and with their votes replace the incumbent leaders and vote in new leaders to take their place. That is probably the greatest legacy of the revolutionary African National Congress.
      One important thing to remember about the apartheid era in South Africa is the fact that the apartheid system was kept in place by means of violence and terror.

        Years of negotiations between the ANC and the Apartheid regime saw the end of that rule and the beginning of the “democracy” of the ANC. Violence was a key factor during those years by both the ANC and the ruling government. It would be unfair to blame the government only. There are other notable leaders who did more than Mandela, yet the world embarked upon this leader and treated him like a god. Ignorance is bliss, for the ANC and the majority.

    This is a good article. Nobody seems to ever mention that president de clerk was actually the hero. If he had not prepared the way then the ANC would never have got into power.

      F.W. DeKlerk deserves credit for using good judgment at a critical time in the history of his country. It was largely because DeKlerk used good judgment that the transition from apartheid to democracy was as peaceful as it was. But there was going to be a transition away from apartheid whether DeKlerk used good judgment or not. Both DeKlerk and Mandela deserve credit for making that transition relatively peaceful and creating the democratic institutions that gave South Africa a chance to recover from apartheid.

        Being at the receiving end of democracy I lost more close friends and relatives since 1994, than between 1975 and 1990 in the Bush War fighting for apartheid. The lists of those I know who died extremely violent deaths since 1994 at the hands of blacks is about 10 pages of A4 pages. It is relative to where one is that changes the picture dramatically. Many victims who were caught and murdered were watching the six o’clock news on TV when they were surprised. Painting pretty pictures of what happen is totally different to what is to come. Surprise, surprise!

          Whether you live in South Africa, the USA, or any other country, the fight against crime is everybody’s business. Part of the adjustment that any country has to make in the transition from fascism to democracy is the transition from fascist policing to community based policing. For the transition to democracy to be complete, the law enforcement agencies have to make the transition to policing in a democratic society, and to do this they will probably need some help from the citizens they are protecting. This is something that is more easily said than done, but that does not change the fact that it has to be done.

            Deputy President Cdr. Mothlante made a speach at the Harry Gwala Memorial in the village of Bulwer, KZN, Saturday, 30 November 2013.
            Harry Gwala boasted that he was a Stalinist while he was still alive.
            Cdr. Mothlante said in his speach, “If ANC members don’t agree with decisions of the ANC, they have to accept it. . .”
            (Cdr. means Comrade)

            A few miles from Bulwer, there have been three farm murders this year.
            The first was a senile old man. The second, the partner of the murdered had her eyes forced open while he was murdered. “We were not expecting any trouble, it come completely out of the blue. . .!”The third the victim had all the house doors open and no window curtains drawn, while he was watching the six o’clock news on TV the murderers came.

            Is it expected that we accept a decision made by others, I do not know where? We have got to accept?

            While FW De Klerk was handing the administration of RSA over to the African National Congress between 1990 and 1994, he was married, but having an affair with another woman. He dumped his wife and married his lover. After 2000 his Ex was murdered!
            The nation felt betrayed!

            I end with a quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

            Hamlet: Act 1, Scene 2, Page 4
            ‘Tis sweet and commendable in your nature, Hamlet.
            Hamlet, you are so sweet and such a good son to mourn your father like this. But you have to remember, that your father lost his father, who lost his father before him, and every time, each son has had to mourn his father for a certain period. But overdoing it is just stubborn. It’s not manly. It’s not what God wants, and it betrays a vulnerable heart and an ignorant and weak mind. Since we know that everyone must die sooner or later, why should we take it to heart? You’re committing a crime against heaven, against the dead, and against nature. And it’s irration-al, since the truth is that all fathers must die. Please give up this useless mourning of yours and start thinking of me as your new father.

            You know what happened after that!

            • Carl Jakobsson December 1, 2013 at 9:45 pm

              You were saying that FW DeKlerk handed over the administration of RSA to the African National Congress. The truth is that DeKlerk negotiated with the African National Congress for the establishment of free elections in South Africa under a democratic constitution. The National Party contested those free elections and lost. They did not give up on those elections beforehand, but they ran and lost. That is OK. In elections, there are winners and losers. So if you lose an election, you move on.
              There seems to be a problem in South Africa with violent crime. I would recommend that the best approach to this problem would be to organize a cooperative effort between the local communities and the law enforcement agencies to fight crime together. I was part of an effort to do this in Long Beach, California in the early 1990′s, and it worked fairly well. We did not eliminate violent crime entirely, but we did bring about a substantial decrease in it.
              When you talk about the relationship between violent crime and the end of apartheid, you have to remember that the apartheid system was kept in place by means of violent crimes committed by the apartheid regime. So the violent crimes being committed by private individuals now are in fact a continuation of the same problem in a different form. That does not mean there is any excuse for the people who are committing these crimes, any more than there was any excuse for the crimes committed by the apartheid regime when that regime was in power. It just means that the fight against violent crime by private individuals should be approached as a continuation of the fight against violent crime, going back to the time when the violent crimes were being committed by the old apartheid regime, to perpetuate itself in power.
              The fight against crime is everybody’s business.

    You lack the facts on the real life of Nelson Mandela, this is a poor piece of writing. You need a basic lesson in the History of South Africa & similar struggles that were perpatrated on the majority Black Peoples of Africa.

  5. Carl Jakobsson November 17, 2013 at 5:06 pm

    If you say Mandela was a murderer, then you have to say that every soldier who ever fought in a war was a murderer. The war in which Mandela fought – for the liberation of the South African people from the apartheid system – was a war that was forced on him and his people by a violent, racist regime.
    Mandela should be remembered for his leadership in the struggle against apartheid, and for his leadership in the postapartheid era in working to bring his country together.

    Nelson Mandela is worshiped in a cult trend –that’s about it.
