Nelson Mandela: a South African Journey Through the Smoke

Nelson Mandela: a South African Journey Through the Smoke

On June 26, 2013 this publication received word that the great Nelson Mandela had died. An article was drafted based on information received from two different sources. It was then placed in a pending file whilst waiting for a third independent source to come forward. A decision was made to publish the news based on the integrity of the two sources who had provided our Johannesburg  correspondent, Laura ONeale, with the information. Within hours of publishing the story,  this website was attacked illegally from that area of the world.
