Sign Language Interpreter At Mandela Memorial Was A Fake?

The deaf community is angry over what they say was a fake sign language interpreter used at former president Nelson Mandela’s memorial, according to reports. According to various online reports, the sign language interpreter used at the memorial at FNB Stadium in Soweto on Tuesday may have been unqualified. Braam Jordaan, a deaf South African citizen and board member of the World Federation of the Deaf Youth Section (WDF), was quoted as saying : “The structure of his hand, facial expressions and the body movements did not follow what the speaker was saying. “I was really upset and humiliated by the mystery interpreter who was supposed to be signing what Barack Obama, the president of United States of America was saying… He made up his own signs.”
