just saving links to inter-related texts here, kind of a follow-up to the sufi exuberance earlier 😉
earlier this year, Ronnie Kasrils’ confessional on the African National Congress’ Faustian deal: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/jun/24/anc-faustian-pact-mandela-fatal-error/
Marwan Barghouti pays homage to Mandela from Hadarim prison, cell no 28: http://www.humanite.fr/nelson-mandela/marwan-barghouti-sur-nelson-mandela-je-salue-le-co-5547/ – this is in French. I can’t find the English version, if there is one.
And Jonathan Cook’s somewhat dissenting note on Mandela’s achievements: http://www.counterpunch.org/2013/12/06/mandela-a-dissenting-opinion/
