Dec 5, 2013 – RIP! Nelson Mandela Is Dead: Madiba Dies In South Africa Today At 95

Please note this is not a hoax, the former South African President Nelson Mandela is dead.

He passed away few minutes ago on his death bed in his home in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Nelson Mandela died at the age of 95. The current President of South Africa Jacob Zuma just made the shocking announcement few minutes ago from SA. Madiba died precisely at 11:50pm South African time on Thursday December 5th, 2013.

Mandela has been a controversial figure for much of his life. Right-wing critics denounced him as a terrorist and communist sympathiser. He nevertheless gained international acclaim for his anti-colonial and anti-apartheid stance, having received more than 250 honours, including the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize, the US Presidential Medal of Freedom, and the Soviet Order of Lenin. He is held in deep respect within South Africa, where he is often referred to by his Xhosa clan name, Madiba, or as Tata (“Father”); he is often described as “the father of the nation”.

After months on death bed, South Africa’s first black President has passed on to glory.

    He was an icon, a hero, a legend, he lived an exemplary life & gave his unreserved best, we’ve lost a genius, but he deserves to rest. May his soul rest in the bosom of the Lord.

    DEAR MADIBA ,WE WERE ALL THINKING YOU TO WILL LIVE UP TO HUNDRED YEARS, THE WHOLE NATION DID THEIR BEST TO FAST, WE GATHERED ALL THE OPELE IFAA, ALAFAA, AALAGEMO, AND ALL THE PASTORS ,

    I TOLD JOSUA TO PRAY FOR YOU, AND I CALLED WINNERS AND ASHIMOLOWO TO PRAY , AND FAST, TO STOP THIS DEMON OF A DEATH.

    I CALLED ALL THE MAAMI OF AROGBAASHOS, AND I LIGHT THE RED AND BLUE CANDLES,

    I CALLED CATHOLIC, AND ANGLICAN, I WENT TO SAUDI TO THROW STONE TO THIS DEMON OF A DEVIL WHO WANT TO TAKE YOU AWAY FROM US .

    I WAS SO SURPRISED THAT , YOU ARE NOT ALLOW TO COMPLETE HUNDRED YEARS, HOW SAD TO SEE YOU GONE JUST LIKE THAT,

    I HAVE TOLD THE MERCIFUL CREATOR TO LET YOU COME BACK AGAIN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE .

    WE ARE NOT SAD ,BECAUSE WE KNEW YOU ARE NOT DEAD , BECAUSE YOU WILL NEVER DIE IN OUR HEART. GOODBYE MADIBA
