    Well no argument there. Though I cannot see what the agenda would be for keeping the truth of Mandela's passing from people in the US. In RSA; I don't know, I don't live there.

    I believe that it would apply to him as well :) I also believe it was Genl. De Wet and not De la Rey. ;)

    Sest it could be true I don't see much wrong with it though if it is, I would actually commend the planners or the brain behind it if it is to be the case as the planing will bring about a well coordinated event with hopefully minimum disruption, which in a African country is of the utmost importance...

    My best always

    Just a sense I've had that while Mandela was still alive, just his presence was enough to keep Malema at bay. Nothing in the least bit logical or factual about it, just a sense. And as I say, I hope that I'm wrong.

    Glad the site is back, well mostly! Seems this Malema fella has been in quite a bit of controversy to put it mildly. While I know next to nothing of RSA politics, I think I would tend to agree with Jaco and not worry too much about him getting near the Presidency.

    How is Mandelas passing going to affect the stability in regards to the hunting industry ?
    Will traveling hunters need to take extra safety precautions ?
    We have a trip planned for next March/ April and some one was raising concerns
