Repecting Madiba

20 March 2014, 08:43

I Hereby request the postponement of the 2014 South African National Election, to the last semester of this year, to the precise day of the 16 December 2014.

The reason for this request being:

1.    With the recent death of our beloved President Nelson Mandela, it just seems to be the respectful decision, to honor his legacy, and show him the last respect, in not having an election, within the mourning period of 12 months.

2.    The day of the 16th December 2014 , would be the most appropriate day , for the already reconciliation National holiday status, as well as the fact that it would be exactly 12 months after his burial or the 5th of December 2014.

Your decision will be of national and international importance towards, the future history of our country, and the remembrance of how much we loved and respected his Honorable Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.

To the #RhodesMustFall Miscreants

To presumably create a diversion from your lack of collective intellect and individual academic non-performance, you have run a (successful) campaign to have the Cecil John Rhodes statue at UCT removed. Bravo.  Read more...
