    What’s worse is the ANC have used this guy before to sign a speech by President Zuma, and there were complaints then by organisations for the Deaf in South Africa. And yet they used him again. It’s incredibly disrespectful and goes against everything Nelson Mandela did for inclusion for all. Can you imagine the outcry if there was an interpreter allegedly translating the speeches from English into Xhosa or Afrikaans but just making up words? There would be even more of an outcry, even though what happened was just the same amount of insult. It says we don’t care enough about you to take this seriously. It makes me really sad that intelligent people who should know better are laughing at this without thinking of its implications.

    Not that this in any way clears up the situation (there are still a lot of troubling questions), but have you seen the update to this story?
