Fraudz makes fun of the mentally ill…Conservative Christianity in action
From RTdotcom The South African sign language interpreter accused of aimlessly ‘flapping his arms around’ as world leaders paid tribute to Nelson Mandela claimed he was a ‘champion’ signer, but suffered a schizophrenic episode at the memorial.
"There was nothing I could do. I was alone in a very dangerous situation. I tried to control myself and not show the world what was going on. I am very sorry. It's the situation I found myself in," the interpreter, identified as 34-year-old Thamsanqa Jantjie, told Johannesburg newspaper, The Star.
Jantjie told the newspaper that he lost concentration, began hearing voices and suffered from hallucinations which, according to the AP, apparently included angels. He does not know what brought on the attack, although he said the jubilation he felt that day could have played a part in it. He added that he currently takes medication to treat his schizophrenia.
