Nelson Mandela is an icon respected all over the world. He is one of the most respected people ever to step on this world and after his demise he is still regarded as a hero.
With all the accolades he has during his time one would expect his past to be perfect as well.
However, this is not the case when it comes to his College transcript that has leaked.
A transcript belonging to the late Nelson Mandela is circulating on social media. What people see is shocking as the marks on Papa
Madiba ’s transcript are miserable. From the picture, he allegedly failed most courses and it did not go well for him.
Being the most loved person in the world, people have a million reasons why he failed the courses. Some blame the Apartheid regime and say that the oppressors failed him intentionally. In support others blame the conditions he lived in whilst going to University .
All in all the marks are quite shocking. Here are some of the reasons given by the public justifying the awful marks
“Could have been deliberate to fail him”
“He was taught in Afrikaans remember”
“Those who were there by then told us that mandela had to abandon his LLB studies at wits because he had been assured by the law prof(ellison kahn) that no black person had enough intellect to pass LLB degree”
“How did you expect him to pass when he was carrying the hopes of the youths of Mzansi on his shoulders & harassed constantly by the apartheid police”
“LMFAO I always tell people that Or Tambo was brains behind many of Mandela’s so called iconic speeches. The guy deserves more credit!”
“First English was not his language and I’m sure he was not allowed to use the library and wena with chick brain uhlekisa ngaye , hhayi uyisilima”
