- South Africans will be celebrating international peace icon Nelson Mandela's 100th birthday on the 18th of July
- Nelson Mandela may not be with us anymore, but his legacy will live on with South Africans forever
- There are South Africans who feel Madiba betrayed his people and is nothing more than a "sellout"
South Africa's first black president will forever be a symbol of forgiveness and peace that inspires the hearts of millions.
On the 17th of July, world leaders got together in Johannesburg to celebrate Madiba, as reported on by Briefly.co.za.
However, it seems not everyone has such a positive view of late Madiba. In fact, there are people who feel Nelson Mandela was a 'sellout' and he betrayed his people.
Twitter user @MashimbyiHlayi1 shared his opinion on social media and soon 4 other tweeps shared their own views as well...
@RTKAY feels Madiba never really did anything for black South Africans.
@MashimbyiHlayi1 added that Mandela was "a puppy for white people".
@Masi_Balane says Mandela allowed oppressors to walk away with the things that are 'most important'.
@Gcina_Mdletshe feels Mandela was only a pawn used to protect the white people of South Africa.
@MashimbyiHlayi1 had a little more to say on the matter...
@Prokid20509677 shared that he has been arguing with his friends over Mandela for years.
