Mandela stands for freedom ,and I don't know if you've read about Uhuru(I think it's the spelling) well it's scary, and I hope it's not true. I am scared for the day Madiba dies

I dont think much is going to change for us when he eventually dies. So I am not going to loose sleep over that ne. I have other much more serious thing to worry about.

Some of them will develop ulcers worrying about all the blacks suddenly turning on them, as if Mandela is some sort of voodoo "happy" charm that currently keeps the white-haters at bay. However, I think most of them will just be very sad for a while. I know I will.

I've also heard those stories, Just Me, and I think it's hard for anyone to just write it off, especially if you've been told these stories by someone who presents a believable "case". Here's the thing: if something awful IS going to happen, we can only cross that bridge when we get to it. So living in fear in the meantime is not helping anyone or anything. And if something awful ISN'T going to happen, then if we live in fear, we're also achieving nothing. Do not be afraid. Just do the best you can with whatever you have RIGHT NOW.

Nothing is going to happen

Nothing is gonna happen cos it's not as if Mandela is doing anything special for the whites now. so why should anything change when he dies?

Mr Mandela, as he should rightly be called, did save us all, black and white alike, by his attitude of reconciliation and his vision of hope for the future. It is sad see, here, in Answerit, and elsewhere, that his vision for a united South Africa is fading as the 'us vs. them' attitude has crept back into the national psyche. Sad to see the so-called brighter folk on Answerit use the 'us' and the 'them' without even realising the enormity of the divide that they help create by giving further currency to its use. Hooray for those that didn't. And when Mr. Mandela dies, a little bit of South Africa will die with him but there will be no uprising, no ridiculous Night of the Long Knives.

Well I've heard about the "Nag van die lang messe" but not going to live my life in fear... But I think you should listen to everything and decide what you are going to keep and what not. But if smoething like that does happen you can't say that you did not know. So I think listen and make a plan just in case it does happen... If is doesn't happen it's great!

Nothing. Some people in SA will be happy, but most of us will be sad. They will probably declare it a national day of mourning and life will go on. These conspiracy theories about "Uhuru" and all that other rubbish is nonsense!

The notion of uhuru really seems to be worrying you and watching the news these days I can understand why this seems more of a reality to you. But honestly, Siener van Rensburg's ramblings require interpretation and have lead people to some bizarre theories, Uhuru being one of them. People who claim to be prophets are usually wrong or only right when interpreted after the fact. If you really think about it, what is Mr Mandela doing that prevents uhuru from happening right now? Nothing. Mr Mandela is a very special man and he is loved by just about everyone in South Africa. His death will bring incredible sadness throughout our country, where both blacks and whites will cry together. We will unite in sadness and mourning.

I'd rather not think about it. Let's live for today, worrying about tomorrow will make us morbid
