#CODDD-ish Gist:: Sign language translator at Nelson Mandela's memorial was a fake

4:54 PM

According to South Africa's Deaf Federation, the sign translator who was seen by millions of people on TV translating at Nelson Mandela's Memorial Service yesterday was a fake, who was making up his own signs. SADF said the man, seen moving his hands beside world leaders as they gave their speech at FNB stadium, communicated nothing that made sense.
"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. He made up his own signs. What happened at the memorial service is truly a disgraceful thing to see. It should not happen at all. It will be forever aligned with Nelson Mandela & Deaf Community, thanks to this fake interpreter.'  A member of the World Deaf Federation said
