SA Flags to be Flown at Half-Mast in Honour of Fidel Castro

You came to the right place to discuss, moan and complain about government and their politicians who do nothing, except for freeloading and filling their own pockets. Enjoy and please, don't hold back.

SA Flags to be Flown at Half-Mast in Honour of Fidel Castro

Oom Kompos will be mightily impressed....

President Jacob Zuma will go to Havana at the weekend to attend the funeral of the late former President of Cuba, Fidel Castro.

The presidency says Castro not only identified with the struggle against apartheid but also inspired the Cuban people to join South Africans in that struggle.

Zuma has sent his condolences to the government and people of Cuba following Castro’s passing last Friday.

He’s ordered that the South African national flag be flown at half-mast at all stations in South Africa today and on the date of Castro’s funeral.

Condolence books have been placed at the Union Buildings in Pretoria, Tuynhuys in Cape Town and at the offices of the premiers throughout the country.

Zuma’s office spoke of the strong bond of solidarity and friendship formed between Presidents Nelson Mandela and Fidel Castro.

A very polarising person indeed. It seems the Cuban people feel distinctly one way or the other - there is no in-between. But yes, Kompos will be VERY impressed :scratchhead:

Like all dictators, left or right, doesn't matter. You always find some glorifying their deeds. Usually none of them is worth a single tear.

I'm surprised FEJ hasn't replied to this yet. He and his family escaped Cuba under the tyranny of Castro. The few Cubans I know hate Castro's guts (and Guevara) and celebrated that the tonsil died. Too bad Raoul is still alive. It kind of shows what the South African government stands for by flying the flag half mast :puke:

I went to Cuba on the day 9/11 happened. Beautiful country, nice people, great food and awesome old cars :thumbs:

I think that if I put something on this forum about the SOB Castro I would be banned or deported from South Africa.
Lets just say that I am very happy he is dead!!!
