I can actually not believe mr. Mandela is this old. Iirc the Robben Island prisoners shouldn't live longer than 65 - 68 yrs due to the long term effect of working in the limestone quarry. This could only mean that mr. Mandela got special treatment ito working in this quarry.
Some people say he died some 15 years ago. I mean who lives to 94?
so what. you'd swear this man was birthed by the virgin mary the way people are carrying on about him. i don't care if he was a freedom fighter and spent 27 years in prison and became the first black south african president, or that they want to claim south africa the rainbow nation because of him. mother teresa did more than he did in her life time than mandela did in his.
Mother Theresa was no friend of the poor, she was a friend of poverty. She believed suffering brought people closer to God. She also took stolen money from criminals and one of history's worst despots without thinking twice.
