Nelson Mandela Is NOT Dead


Nelson Mandela Is NOT Dead


A representative of the former South African president dismissed the death hoax, saying the politician is alive and well.

A representative for Nelson Mandela has blasted internet reports suggesting the political icon died on Saturday, January 15, insisting he is alive and well. Rumors that the former South African president had passed away hit the web, but a spokesperson for the Nelson Mandela Foundation has moved swiftly to deny the speculation.

A statement from the organization reads, "Nelson Mandela is well and on holiday. (These are) unsubstantiated reports about Nelson Mandela's health."

Mandela is the latest star caught up in a death hoax - Aretha Franklin, Charlie Sheen, Adam Sandler, Owen Wilson and singer Justin Bieber have also been targeted by web rumors about their passing recently.
