Footage Of Mandela Memorial Sign Language ‘Faker’ At 2012 ANC Event With Zuma

December 12, 2013

I’ve just found out about this footage:

And it turns out that if this man is a fake, international laws could have been broken:

Mr Jordaan told SBS that if the interpeter is proven to be unqualified, this could be a breach of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which was ratified by the South African government in 2007.

Article 21 of the Convention says that ‘States Parties’ should take ‘appropriate measures’ to provide professional sign language interpreters.
