Mandela Died in Prison?
Original Mandela Effect article According to some people, Nelson Mandela died in prison, long before his loss on December 5th, 2013.
That’s where the name of this phenomenon – and my original Mandela Effect website – came from.
I’m the person who first popularized the phrase, “Mandela Effect,” and here’s what I said, back in 2009, slightly updated with newer information.
I thought Nelson Mandela died in prison. I thought I remembered it clearly, complete with news clips of his funeral, the mourning in South Africa, some rioting in cities, and the heartfelt speech by his widow.
Then, I found out he was still alive.
My reaction was sensible, “Oh, I must have misunderstood something on the news.”
I didn’t think about it again for many years, until – in the VIP suite at Dragon*Con – “Shadowe,” a member of the event’s Security team casually mentioned that other people “remembered” when Nelson Mandela died in prison.
That caught my attention in a hurry.
One thing led to another, and I discovered a large community of people who remember the same Mandela history that I recall.
Others have similar “false” memories.
There has been a lot of questions raised as of lately regarding the death of the late former president Nelson Mandela who was sentenced to prison for 27 years and became president in 1994 for fighting for democracy in South Africa when South Africa was still ruled by the apartheid regime. During the time of his arrest Mandela was sentenced to Robben Island among other political activists for life with no chance of parole.
A man who goes by the name of ‘Motherwell Yodwa’ on facebook has caused a stir as lately emphasizing that the real Mandela died a long time ago and the Mandela who became president is the fake one.
