    The woman just won a billion dollar lottery right?. I don't blame you guys, first of all the SA president was too busy to welcome him so what about that. You guys in the west are very very less important to Africa as you portray.

    It is disgusting that developed countries would commit crimes against African countries and no action is taken against them. Those behind Apartheid in South (the Source of Mandela's present ill health) should be punished Africa should be punished.

    So good woman, youve done a great job, however, for Mandela, he came, he saw and probably, he may be leaving. To God be the glory.

    Mandela is African pride, Since his predicament he has not been taken out of SA, were it to be Nigeria he would have been taken round the world in search of elusive cure no apology to Yaradua, Patience Jonathan, etc
