Alas, as much as SA lifts up Mandela, it will never live down Zuma

Posted by Anthony L. Hall

A statue of Nelson Mandela was unveiled at United Nations headquarters in New York. The country of South Africa donated the statue in commemoration of a 100-years since Mandela’s birth.

No doubt Mandela deserves this honor. I just wonder why South Africa had to pay for it.

The UN should have passed a resolution to fund it. After all, when he was alive, every nation claimed him as its own. But, at the very least, the African Union should have funded it as an all-Africa gift to the UN.
