Is Madiba circling the drain?

Discussion in 'Southern Africa' started by Tool, Dec 10, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can someone more local than Norfolkshire giz an update on whether Madiba is "hale and hearty", or is he a shoe-in for he Dead Celebrity 2012 pool?
     
  2. Apparently frail, but getting chucked out of the chancre mechanic's soon according to the news. Probably live longer if the butchers at 1Mil don't get a go on him.
     
  3. "South Africa's first black President Nelson Mandela is being treated for a lung infection, the president's office has said."
    and 1 MIL - I thought he preferred the MilPark or Sandton Clinic?
     
  4. He's stale and farty.

    Make sure you have a black tie to hand. Anybody not wearing one when he croaks is liable to be arrested for racism.
     
  5. Talk of armed soldiers checking visitors and vehicles and I believe he's under care of mil quacks. One assumed it was 1Mil. You're probably right re the expensive private hospitals. What's good enough for the riff raff is definitely not good enough for the ruling elite.

    News reports still claim 1 Mil, and Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula the Minister for Stealing from the Defence Force has been in to get a final autograph she can ebay later:

    Eyewitness News: Mandela remains - are to be put on view ?
     
  7. I've got a really dark blue one, do you think that will do?
     
  8. So singing and dancing wearing the clown suit may get one's collar felt then....

    Just thought, unless Madiba has left particular instructions as to his planting/arcing, just how big and how expensive will The Party make his tomb ?

    They have the entire budget, less that absolutely neccessary to keep their private Swiss accounts in twelve figure balance, and probably the next three years' projected national income at their disposal to build something respectful and humble, like a pearl encrusted Eiffel Tower with a Taj Mahal on the top.
     
  11. You watch, Zuma'll make sure it looks like a kraal and by 2020 everyone'll suppose Madiba was a Zulu.
     
  12. Get a grip lad, this is not the 1980's were you could go casual.
     
  13. At least in Joburg we own ties, check out those clowns in Cape Town!
