Mandela Memorial Interpreter Once Faced Rape, Murder, And Kidnapping Charges
Posted by Gateway Guest Blogger on Friday, December 13, 2013, 9:07 PM


The more that is revealed about this ‘fake’ sign language interpreter, the more one has to wonder about the competence of any aspect of the Obama Administration—down to the ability of the Secret Service to do their job in vetting those surrounding the President.

NY Daily News and Fox News are now reporting that the Mandela ‘Fake’ interpreter has a past rap sheet including charges of murder, rape, and kidnapping.

The incompetence is stunning and laughable as illustrated in this recent Jimmy Kimmel segment in which a sign language interpreter evaluates what the Mandela interpreter actually said.



NYDailyNews reports the following:

The “fake” sign language interpreter who said he suffered a schizophrenic fit  onstage at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service has a criminal history that includes charges of rape and murder, according to a report.

Thamsanqa Jantjie – who stood near several world leaders, including President Obama, during the event at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg – has been arrested at least five times since the mid-1990s, but he allegedly dodged jail time because he was mentally unfit to stand trial, the South African news station eNCA reported Friday.

The station found that Jantjie, 34, who has a long history of mental illness, has been arrested on suspicion of rape, theft, housebreaking and malicious damage to property. His most recent collar was in 2003, when he faced murder, attempted murder and kidnapping charges, the news station reported.

Jantjie was acquitted on the rape charge in 1994, but was eventually convicted of theft and sentenced to three years in prison. However, the news station said it was unclear if the man ever spent any time behind bars. [...]

South African ‘interpreter’ fake-signed anti-white song, also accused of murder [VIDEO]
2:34 PM 12/13/2013

The man who used jibberish sign language at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service also used incoherent hand gestures to sign a notorious anti-white song sung last year by current South African President Jacob Zuma.

Thamsanqua Jantjie, 34, late said that he is schizophrenic and was hallucinating during the Mandela memorial speeches. The interpreter also admitted that he’d been prone to fits of violence in the past, an admission that was worrisome given his proximity to President Barack Obama and other world leaders.

According to NBC News, Jantjie has worked two other gigs on behalf of the African National Congress (ANC), South Africa’s majority party. He was paid $85 per diem for his work at the memorial, NBC reported.

One was an event where President Zuma led gatherers in “Kill the Boer,” an apartheid protest song that South African courts have ruled is hate speech.

Boer is an Afrikaans word for farmer and is often used to refer to whites. Thousands of South Africa’s white farmers have been murdered since the end of apartheid. Some have called this a form of genocide and claim that the song provokes racial violence.

Zuma and other ANC leaders have come under fire in the past for singing the song. The ANC largely defends the song as part of the history of its struggle against apartheid-era oppression.

But the hearing-impaired would not have understood Jantjie’s interpretation of the violent song, which contains lyrics like “We going to shoot them with the machine gun” and “You are a Boer, we are going to hit them and you are going to run.”

“He does not interpret a bit at the beginning where Zuma says ‘Come together all the winners,’” said Bencie Woll, director of the Deafness Cognition and Language Research Centre at University College, London. “As an interpreter, he should be interpreting everything said by the speaker. When he does sign, there is little evidence of any facial expression, just as in the Mandela clip.”
