Dan Majestic reports from Washington: So now we know. The late former South African President Nelson Mandela. He was South African born on July 18th 1918 anti-apartheid and politician who was President of South Africa between 1994 and 1999. Yep, that’s what US President Barack Obama has read for the notes in front of him. The design is reminiscent of the tribute Apple made for Steve Jobs. The thinking process manifests itself on his face. As in: how do I string this sentence together! Obama tribute to Mr Mandela President of South Africa and President Zuma. Reading The Script. Politicians reading their tributes to Mandela from the script.
