PostHeaderIcon Mandela Memorial Committee!

We have the distinguished honour of being members of the committee to raise 5 million rand to place a statue of Nelson Mandela, recently retired President of the ANC and soon to be ex-President of South Africa, in front of the Parliamentary Buildings in Cape Town.

This committee was in quite a quandary about selecting the proper location for the statue. It was thought unwiseto place it beside the statue of George Washington, who never told a lie, nor beside the statue of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, who never told the truth, since the ANC, under Nelson Mandela, could never tell the difference.

After careful consideration, we thought it would be a good idea to place it beside the statue of Christopher Columbus, the greatest socialist of them all, in that he started, not knowing where he was going and, upon arrival, did not know where he was, and on returning, did not know where he had been, and did it all on borrowed money.

Five thousand years ago, Moses said to the Children of Israel, “Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land”. Five thousand years later, Sam Shilowa of COSATU said “Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, light a camel, this IS the Promised Land” Now the ANC under Nelson Mandela has stolen your shovel, kicked your asses, raised the price of Camels and taken over the Promised Land.

If you are one of the citizens of our Rainbow Nation who has any money left after paying taxes, we expect a generous contribution from you for this worthwhile project. Thank you for your support.
