Symbolic; almost fateful, no?
The picture in an aging, tan-brick farmhouse, at the end of a long, dusty road on the savannah, distils the essence of a national hero. In it, the man raises his arms toward the heavens, his index finger and thumb appearing to make the victory sign. He is standing in the middle of several thousand black children in Coca-Cola T-shirts and baseball caps, some with their mouths agape cheering, others looking stoically into the lens. Nineteen years later, Josia Thugwane looks at the photo, competing for space on his living room wall with a mural of himself and Nelson Mandela.
The Coke endorsement deal ended more than a decade ago. No-one from Athletics South Africa ASA has called in years to ask the famous Olympian to speak to kids, make an appearance, or mentor a promising runner; much less attend any upcoming 20th-anniversary function.

They frantically tweeted everything coming over the crackly line, often mishearing or failing to understand the context as police screamed for back up. Most damaging of all Twitter users began to circulate a rumour that a missing Indian-American student was one of the bombers. Even one of his friends tweeted that his picture matched one of the men sought by the FBI.
It took only a moment for his name to be flashed all over the internet, to the dismay of his parents who have not heard from him for over a month. The wildfire of speculation that the student was involved was only brought under control after NBC News directly contradicted the internet reports. It is emphatically not about making sure any allegations resulting from the picture are made public,” said the New Statesman’s Alex Hern.
Imagine if people were standing around in Boston pointing fingers at people in photographs and roughly accusing them of terrorism. And perhaps, in the future, people will find ways to crowdsource without spotlighting false positives in a public discussion forum.
