Did they botch Mandela’s embalming?

Where is Nelson Mandela’s body?
Dec. 12, 2013.


I found this last night from South Africa.

No PLANS to release Madiba pics.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was never a Saint per se.

But, he was an exemplary human being with a heart of gold and a great set of values.

Not so when it comes to his extended, splintered, multi-tier family.
Fully understand and appreciate that many went through A LOT
in the past and that some did a great deal of good for the cause.
As such they, though not all, are entitled to try and
profit as much as possible from their GREAT MAN.

But, it would be a shame if this is all but a ploy to
get big bucks for photo exclusives.

Then again, knowing South Africa’s propensity for getting this wrong —
they could very easily botched the embalming.

I am sure we will find out soon enough.

I was, as I had for the last 72 hours, was on a mission to find the body.

Happened to see this YouTube video with the  ‘… body lies …‘ title. So, of course, I had to watch it.

I only spotted Rajapaksa (who I don’t know) because he stuck out … the lone figure in white
… yes, the Sri Lankan national outfit (sans the red scarf) … but, with the red, makes him look like a wannabe pope
(which would, of course, make his Catholic wife rather happy).

So, from what I can see, he stayed on after the open air memorial service earlier this week.

Mystery deepens.

You would think that there would be ONE official picture.

Don’t get it.

Trust me. I have a nose for such matters. Something is amiss.

We have seen the bodies of plenty of heads-of-state and popes at their funeral.

I come from a culture where the body is invariably on show
— typically properly embalmed given the heat.

Yes, it is ‘Spring’ in South Africa.
I think, as with the fake interpreter, they screwed up.
That would not be unusual for them.
They are good at that and have lots of practice.

Where Is Nelson Mandela’s Body? I Have Yet To See It? I Haven’t Even Seen The Casket. What Is The Deal Here?

CNN, which always appears to have trouble covering important overseas events,
has managed to set a new sorry, abysmal record for ineptitude
with the Mandela coverage.

I watch at least two hours of CNN every day,
from around 8:20 to 9:20 and then at night between 7 and 8.
So, I always catch the 9 a.m. news.

I have yet to see Mandela’s body.

I NEED to see Mandela’s body.

I can’t even find it on Google News.

What is the deal here.

I even checked the BBC.

Something is awry. I don’t like it.

Click to access. Some good pictures. But NONE of the body.

 I am so fed up hearing about the damn, duplicitous
‘fake’ interpreter.

What is the BIG deal here? We are talking about South Africa?

Yes, given that I follow all Test playing countries and I do know a few South Africans, I know a bit more about S. A. than most.

How many of YOU actually have even heard of the current S.A. president, the ANC Jacob ‘the polygamist’ Zuma, the rape allegations and how he paid 10 cows for a child bride?

That is South Africa.

There are three (3) words that have always helped me understand Africans — including the Kenyan Barack Hussein Obama II, the disgraceful president of the U.S. of A.

Those three words are:
Munda Logic‘ &
Eysenck.

When you are familiar with Eysenck and ‘Munda Logic’, fake interpreters, Obama’s (yet more stupidity) ‘selfie at funeral‘ or Obama’s FRAUD when it comes to ObamaCare are all easy to rationalize and reconcile. Basically it is par for the course. That is how they do things.

But, that I can’t see Mandela’s body bothers me.

Enough said.
