Mandela returns to Johannesburg

2012-01-28 11:20

Johannesburg - Former president Nelson Mandela will be returning to his Johannesburg home, presidential spokesperson Mac Maharaj said on Saturday.

Mandela would return to Johannesburg on Sunday as routine "maintenance has to be undertaken at his Qunu home in the Eastern Cape," he said.

"The former president continues to be in good health. We once more appeal for his privacy and that of his family to be respected," said Maharaj.

Mandela moved to Qunu a few days before his 93rd birthday in July last year.

    Hopefully someone will now have the opportunity to attack him and kill him with an iron pipe before driving a blunt knife through his heart. Then maybe, just mabe, the killing of old white people will stop.

      Marcell - 2012-01-29 09:31
