Because the fools who were booing do not know the difference between a right and wrong platform to wash dirty linen.It means they were there to mess up Madiba,s farewell.

my view on this issue is that there is no smoke with out fire. When umkhonto we sizwe went to war they wanted to obliterate apathied (apartness) . However somewhere along the line, ANC lost its cutting edge, it forgot the objectives of the revolution and was hijaked by the rich. It then dumped the poor while its elitist minority class of millionaires lavishly enjoy the same privileges which were reserved for the white during pre independence error. The on the other hand, the poor are being were being brain washed to believe that they living in a rainbow nation, and are eating the fruits of indipendence. The death of Mandela (may his soul rest in peace) ushers South Africa into a new error, an error of introspection. An error where the poor want a true economic revolution, a revolution which will change the ownership of the means of production. They even wish Mugabe was their man, for he is the only African leader to achieved that.Arise and take your destiny, it will not come on a silver plata open you eyes and see, work up from the dream of a rainbow nation. The booooooo is a signal of a revolution in waiting, the masses are tired and they want change. Viva South Africa, long live the struggle! Amandla -ngawethu.

It's not that they love him, it's because they view him as a catoon character, a clown of some sort. From M**di Dikiza

Because he is the only outstanding African leader who could stand against the imperialist forces something South Africans would have wished their leaders had done. And that was a clear message to Zuma, Mugabe way, or leave the office. Message was very clear and even the Obama's got the message very well.

because malema wanted to humiliate zuma so he organised youths to cheer the despised and rejected mugabe, and to boo the unprepared Zuma. It just takes a little organisation to produce the headlines malema wanted to humiliate Zuma. of course mugabe had contributed a lot of cash to Malema's campaigning, so it takes no rocket scientist to see how malema could kill two birds with one stone- please mugabe and humiliate zuma..... but it was all about rent-a-crowd, not about genuine popular feelings.

Any plausible significance for us all to deduce from that? The answer is: "No".

Mugabe has managed to paralyse the imperialists' strongholds by at least start the redistribution of the economy, while the leadership of SA (ANC) are still dancing to the music of the imperialists. Don't be fooled Mugabe has done something, Mandela, Zuma and Mbeki did absolutely nothing to black south Africans.

Mugabe has a spine and Zuma and Mbeki are spineless, Mandela was spineless and did not have any clue or strengths to do it. What do south Africans have as evidence for their freedom? Honestly what do they have? The Answer is NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mugabe is doing something right, not everything, but on the black empowerment front, he takes the lead where others dare to follow. The man has courage and does not suck up to the west, live Zuma does. Soon black empowerment mannia will grip SA because the stage for that is set.

I don't know that but I do know that he will have a bigger funeral than Mandela. Gabriel is the main ou and we all know it. He famously said, "The British, it's not that we hate you, it's just that we love ourselves. We love ourselves better than we love you. " Aluta continua victoria a certe

Mugabe is a icon who has given more for africans than any leader out there.He is still a politician like Zuma who will be remembered for burning africans together with his so called king zwelithini and son l think they should go to the Hague and answer.I cannot understand how a whole state can fail to respond to someone stoning and burning a individual when even the firebrigade can be on site to extinguish a fire or a accident scence much faster.l think the ANC is organising murders on foreigners.We need a strong message and action they cant touch chinese,white people indians etc they are such cowards they cant even touch them or must l say extremely stupid.

Its because those who cheered are assholes.I follow with keen interest the debates in Parliament, social networks and newspapers on how regions, particularly the southern ones have been, for many years, excluded from a fair share of the ‘national cake'. Instead of reinforcing the victim mentality, I acknowledge that it is not only the southern provinces, (by which I include Masvingo, the Midlands and Matabeleland) suffering from fiscal exclusion, but several other areas of the northern provinces, particularly Manicaland. Marginalisation is a national scourge with its origins in colonialism but sadly perpetuated by the vindictiveness and incompetence of Zanu PF governance consumed by the paranoia of centralisation. However, it is in southern provinces that the impact of neglect has been more conspicuously devastating, resulting in diminished school and university enrolment, large-scale migration to neighbouring countries, de-indutrialisation and, ultimately, unemployment. In the past decades, there has been a unison chorus for central government to be affirmative on the issue, with critics arguing that Gukurahundi was a symptom of marginalization and the more radical arguing that the deindustrialization of Bulawayo, for example, is Gukurahundi by economic means rather than by the gun and the bayonet. Observers cite how the Matabeleland and Midlands provinces are characterized in public institutions such as the police, hospitals and clinics, government and public offices of all descriptions, border posts and institutions of higher learning (such as colleges, universities, teacher training and technical colleges) by an almost complete absence of persons from the province in the register of those employed in these institutions. Not that the situation in the private sector is any better. Inevitably, scores of ‘nationalist' pressure groups have emerged in these areas, each purporting to push one cause or another in favour of ‘power and wealth-sharing'. Before his passing, Eric Bloch went out of his way to explain the benefits of devolution, arguing "that administration should be decentralised from Harare, and that within the parameters of an overall national economic policy, appropriate underlying policies should be regionally determined as, all too often, one area may be in need of policies and actions very specific to their areas." Of greater interest is where he quoted the Bulawayo Progressive Residents Association referring to "one major myth against devolution as the perceived fear that it would lead to the disintegration of the country and the State." It is obviously not true that when a country is effectively devolved, there is equality in wealth consumption. Except perhaps for Switzerland, many devolved countries, like Kenya, South Africa and Nigeria are still afflicted with income disparities. This is what lends ‘legitimacy' to the separatist movement in Scotland, Spain and Zimbabwe. Yet given the bloody ‘post-secession' South Sudan, it is a warning that simply re-drawing borders on paper does not guarantee national happiness, neither does it, by itself, engender peace.
