Hopefully Twitter doesn't know about this…

Nevermind.


Rumors are spreading on Twitter and other social media sites saying that former South African leader Nelson Mandela, known as “Madiba” to many, has died on Thursday.

“No, I haven’t heard anything about that,” his grandson, Mandla Mandela, told IOL, referring to the meeting.


I hope when my grandpa dies I learn about it from Twitter-verse.

Very sad, not unexpected but I was hoping he'd make it much longer.

A man way ahead of his time who was trapped in his time, and forged it forward. RIP.

His funeral should be a gathering of the world's elite, the world's activists, and the world's humanitarians. South Africa had the option of total civil war and total hate, and then Mandala came out of a confinement which few could endure and did nothing but express love and reconciliation for all his fellow countrymen.

Very, very sad to hear that he'd passed away. Not unexpected - he was 95. A great man with a huge heart.

History my friend, is written by the winners. Had Mandela not triumphed it would be just another dead communist/terrorist, -insert label here-.

While his life will be celebrated, one could argue about all the people who had better character that won't be.
