JUST IN: Man commits suicide because…

Posted on

Just this morning, 25th February 2014, in Leonard’s street, Rosenteville, Johannesburg, South Africa, a white man of about 60 years old jumped down from a two storey building in an effort to take his own life. Our Johannesburg correspondent was at the scene of the incident to capture the picture of the diseased.

On interview, a neighbor who spoke on anonymous grounds said the death of the 60 year old man might be “another effect of the worsening economic situations in South Africa following the death of her founding father- Nelson Mandela and the coming general elections.”

As at press time, the body of the deceased is still lying down in front of the house he jumped from while police officers are carrying out their investigations.

More news on this is coming soon.

Breaking News: Mixed feelings as Mandela’s will is read.

Posted on

The will of the former president of South Africa Nelson Mandela has been read. The anti apartheid struggle icon left 64 million South African rands for his family. 9 if his employees got 50,000 Rands each for their services to the late president. The children got 3 million rands each and his surviving wife Gracia got half of Mandela’s estate.

Mixed feelings aroused on the social media as Winnie Mandela was omitted from the will. Winnie didn’t get a cent from the will.

A status update on Facebook reads thus: “If Mandela truly forgave Winnie, why would he omit her in his will despite her struggles during the struggle?”

It will be recalled that some white sculptors had made a caricature of Mandela’s statue by inserting a rat in his ear.
