ANC Youth League wants Mandela photographer arrested
13 December 2013
The ANC Youth League wants the person who took Comrade President Nelson Mandela`s lying-in-state photo to be arrested and prosecuted. We are amazed that there are some people who chose to abuse the token of friendship that the Mandela family has extended to the rest of us as the public to have a chance to see our beloved Madiba for the last time.
As the ANC Youth League, we call on those that are circulating this picture to stop and those that have it to delete it. The act of circulating this photograph is disgusting and distasteful - it is un-African and disrespectful to Comrade President Mandela, his family and the South African public.
