My favorite part is how defenders try to pull out a save with the Zulu card near the end. http://www.standard.co.uk/news/world/sign-language-interpreter-at-nelson-mandelas-memorial-was-a-fake-who-made-up-his-own-hand-gestures-8997189.html The sign language interpreter used at Nelson Mandela's football stadium memorial was a fake, it was claimed this morning. Braam Jordaan, a deaf South African and board member of the World Deaf Federation, said he believes the interpreter was making up signs as he went along. "The structure of his hand, facial expressions and the body movements did not follow what the speaker was saying", Mr Jordaan said. Mr Jordaan claimed the man, who signed for a portion of the ceremony including Barack Obama's speech, was simply making up his own signs. "I was really upset and humiliated", he told the SBS news website, "He made up his own signs. "What happened at the memorial service is truly disgraceful thing to see - it should not happen at all. "What happened today will be forever aligned with Nelson Mandela & Deaf Community, thanks to this fake interpreter." Defenders of the man, whose identity has not yet been disclosed, have claimed that he was signing in South Africa's Zulu language. But deaf campaigners said sign language is not based on a spoken language and such there can be no such thing as "Zulu" Sign Language South Africa has just one sign language, which recognises all regional dialects. A South African government spokesman said they were aware of complaints about the man and are investigating.
