Oh dear. South Africa's going to be in great mourning. Wonder how that is going to effect the Government? Mandela's presence helped to keep the reasonable part of ANC in charge all of these years. I guess every one who has been waiting for lots of farms and freebies to come their way is probably to come out of the wood works now.
