Very funny, Mandela. Some of us know the truth about Church Street. How many women and children has Gary Player murdered in cold blood? Anyone know Mandela's body count? I do.

Hey Mandela, why didn't you roll up your sleeves and stop your revolutionary struggle buddy, Mugabe, from bulldozing the homes of one million poor people (with old, young and sick still inside)? Matabeleland massacre, anyone? Why wasn't Mandela putting his body in between Mugabe's stormtroopers and Morgan Tsvangirai?

He's worried about a golf course in Myanmar, when his friends and political associates have racked up hundreds of thousands of African bodies both black and white? Necklacing? Inkatha?

Next program, please. We've seen all this before! You can go back to sleep, America and Britain. Mandela says Gary Player is an evil, supporter of violent regimes. You needn't trouble yourself about the truth.

To say that the situation in Burma is "politically complex" is just a fancy way of saying the situation is terrible and we have no clue as to what to do to sort out the problem. But my problem is with the larger issue of players going off to build golf courses all over the world, hobnobbing with the who's who in the business world across the globe. It is just that image of players raking in the bug bucks through these attractive business tie ups that worries me.

Don’t mistake me; I have no problem with players making a lot of money, that after all is one of the added perks of being one of the best in your field. But more and more players are focusing on their business ventures not just after their best days on the course are over but also when they are at the prime of their career. Golf has always suffered the image of being considered an elitist sport and that maybe partly true.

Therefore these ambassadors of the game might have to go out of their way to go and promote the game through participating in golf clinics and tournaments in different parts of the world, by getting the ordinary public to come and see them display their wares and not focus on business link ups and fancy courses in tourist resorts. Therefore I am not surprised that sometimes problems like this might crop up and one cannot blame Gary Player for this present issue. That is not where the problem is, the root cause is elsewhere and that is something that all the big names will have to contemplate.

Mandela is a terrorist. The word on the street is
that when he dies, the war against South African
whites will go from cold to hot.

But like Om Piet says, go back to sleep you PC idiots.
Most whites will celebrate the wholesale slaughter
of other whites and say they "had it coming".
