See What The New Vision Did To President Obama

The New Vision in its continuous quest to be pro-state went ahead and edited US President Barack Obama’s Mandela Memorial speech. See what New York-based journalist, Joshua Mmali noticed.

The New Vision reproduced the next excerpt from the speech in a story titled “Obama’s speech at Mandela memorial” and dated Dec 10, 2013.

“Like America’s founding fathers, he would erect a constitutional order to preserve freedom for future generations – a commitment to democracy and rule of law ratified not only by his election, but by his willingness to step down from power.”

But when compared to the original phrasing, a crucial change was done to the last clause of the line.

The original speech:

“And like America’s Founding Fathers, he would erect a constitutional order to preserve freedom for future generations — a commitment to democracy and rule of law ratified not only by his election, but by his willingness to step down from power after only one term.”
