De Mortuis

Sometimes it’s just better than people deserve.  PW Botha – former President of South Africa, finger-wagging defender of apartheid in its final years, he who refused to release Mandela from prison – is dead.  Nelson Mandela comments, ‘We will remember him for the steps he took to pave the way towards the eventual peacefully negotiated settlement in our country’ – and the ANC sends a message of sympathy to the Botha family.  What a country.  Poverty – yes.  HIV/Aids – yes.  But amazing grace as well.
