Mourning Madiba

Have to lead this week with a quick post about the death of Nelson Mandela .... a story that will be lead on every news report this week, and many blogs will tackle, so as usual I won't waste readers time or patience discussing his life or achievements.

Nelson Mandela 18 July 1918 - 5 December 2013

What I will therefore mention is a slant that some may not discuss, which is because of his legendary ability to forgive those who had sinned against him, his brief one term as President was possibly the only time in black African history that there was genuine hope of a Black African Government, that was free of corruption. Sadly that was not to stay that way and the A.N.C is now a corrupt organisation.

So what if the Boers and other whites had shown some foresight, and handed over power in the 1970's or 1980's, and allowed him two or three terms in power as President, steering both the country and perhaps more importantly the political A.N.C and keeping the government clean ..... the rainbow dream might have become reality ..... its only speculation, but a real 'What If' indeed.
