While it is very very sad, And I do mourn the passing of a great man, I believe that he died in June and his family (and the SA Govt) couldn't deal with it so covered it up until the time is right... now...

Google and you will find a few sources to support my theory but I guess we may never know for sure...

I thought it would be at least 24 hours before the conspiracy theories started, I guess not.

Not the time nor place for this.

I believe he may have been on life support since June , but I believe he really died today. Machines can keep people alive. When you are 95 there is no real reason to be kept alive by a machine

Sadly as time wears on it would seem that our greatest people are passing on and without others of the same calibre to replace them.
