Podcast: Sarah Nuttall Discusses Nelson Mandela’s Attitude towards Death

JohannesburgAt the recent Think!Fest presented at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown from 27 June to 7 July, Sarah Nuttall gave a talk on Nelson Mandela’s nearing death.

Drawing on comments Mandela made over the years about the passing of family members and comrades, as well as his own mortality, Nuttall showed that the former president attempted to own his death. “I think this is one of the things that we can do for Mandela right now,” she said, “to help him to be the owner of his own death, rather than ceding it to someone else.”
