Mandela Never Sold Out!


MANDELA DID NOT SELL OUT—RESPONSE TO THE YOUNGSTER

Floyd Shivambu

On the 17th of July 2012, an author who identified himself/herself as a Youngster penned a letter to former President Nelson Mandela, not to wish him the 94th Birthday which falls on the 18th of July, but to charge that President Mandela is a sell-out. The writer of the letter premises this notion on a fallacy spread that President Mandela re-interpreted or distorted the Freedom Charter for immediate political convenience and gratification during the transition from apartheid to an elected inclusive government.

RESPONSE TO GWEDE MANTASHE


RESPONSE TO GWEDE MANTASHE

Julius Malema

20 July 2012

The Secretary General of the ANC Gwede Mantashe is quoted on Friday, 20 July 2012 Sowetan as having said that what Mama Winnie Madikizela Mandela is doing is dangerous for the organisation. He said “She has taken a decision to go against the ANC national executive committee's (position) on Julius. She has decided to oppose the decision”. This he said in reference to the fact that Mama Winnie Mandela and her family partook on charitable activities in honour of President Nelson Mandela’s 94th Birthday alongside the leadership of the ANC Youth League, which the faction that Gwede Mantashe belongs to has suspended/expelled from the ANC.
