There is a Zulu saying which goes: “Kuhlekwa noma kushoniwe.”  The English translation is: “There is laughter even when there is a death.” The memory of Nelson Mandela is one that will be forever revered by millions around the world. It was not ideal to see the negative and embarrassing reactions of the crowd to the appearance of SA Pres. Zuma despite the fact that many feel that he was the captain of the ship which brought him to that situation, at the stadium in front of a host of heads of state.

However, the fact that we are still able to laugh even when we are unhappy is evidence of human strength. Some may be offended by the images I’ve collected for this post but let’s be honest, that won’t take anything away from the fact that some of these pictures are hilarious. That’s really what this post is about; the humour which followed the incident and not whether it was morally correct to boo the president at a memorial service in front of visitors.

South Africans are always quick to resort to humour when things go south and lately, what with the latest developments in the political arena, things have certainly been going downhill.

Enough writing, I found these on social networks and they are inspired by that thing which happened at FNB Stadium during the memorial service. I’m just going to leave them here…

And last but certainly not least…
