Mama Africa abandoned Africa to live among the white folks over a generation ago. And we really cannot blame her. It has become quite a sh!thole since Mandela: no electricity, rotting roads, water and sewer plants shut down, feces floating on Durban beaches, high rises apartment buildings are now rat infested ghettoes.
Let's face it. Mama Africa knew what was good for her -- white folks and white folks' culture. she never wanted to live in South Africa, so why make her go back now?
At a time when all civilized cultivated people are fleeing the violence, rape and repression that is South Africa under ANC rule, do not use her dead body to make her return in death to a place she refused to inhabit while living.
Let her be buried as she lived, among the white folks, the white culture and the white civilization she loved so much.
