Twitter and some top ANC officials question the state for offering De Klerk state funeral

People be asking themselves Why didn't the apartheid regime start "talks" with Chris Hani; Winnie Mandela or J.G Zuma? Why did they want to just talk to Nelson Mandela and not people who were strong and influential at the time.

It's because Mandela had been away from the people for so many years; he had been "weakened" for all those years he spent in Robben Island.

Mandela was no longer in touch with reality; he didn't even know about the 1976 uprising; he was in jail for so many years that the liberation struggle had taken a different direction

At times the wardens didn't give him newspapers so he didn't know what was happening out there.

They needed someone who was jailed for fighting for liberation, people saw as a Hero. There were "free Mandela" concerts all over the world; sanctions being imposed on SA

Mandela was the perfect person to "dangle" to the people. To ask black people to "forgive" and put down arms.

Biggest and most grave error was to suspend the armed struggle! that was our only hope to redemption and true justice. We would've taken Land and all in it by force bu 1994 with an armed struggle led by Mam Winnie, Commanded by Hani while Msholozi remained Strategic Leader He is.

When PAC political prisoners came out of jail, they sang a song called "Asimbonaga uMandela thina laphe ahleli khona".

Mandela died in the 60ths and the person that came out was an actor called Gibson Makhanda trained by the CIA to imitate Mandela.
