JOHANNESBURG — President Obama eulogized Nelson Mandela as "the last great
liberator of the 20th century'' as tens of thousands of South Africans,
joyously cheering and singing despite a cold rain, mourned the passing and
celebrated the life of the father of their modern nation.
Looks like someone is engaging in a bit of hyperbole there.
More like understatement; liberating 90% of the population of a
country like South Africa is a huge achievement.
And you posted this off-topic article here becuase?
He (she?) was very much on-topic, this was broadcast on every news
channel.

...which has nothing to do with rec.arts.theatre.musicals, which is the
filthy neo-Nazi scum's very favorite place to smear his shit.
