If you knew anything about Mandela’s final years, I doubt you’d be inclined to make him the focus of your fallacious appeal to authority. This is from about a year after that speech:

"Mandela is said by those close to him to be suffering from a form of senile dementia, which doctors say is common in the very old. He gets confused and is easily upset and agitated. Importantly, for a man who was obsessed with the news, his family and the military now largely protect him from the details of everyday life."

From here: http://www.cnn.com/2012/02/26/world/africa/south-africa-mandela-importance/

And before you resort to imagining a quick descent over the course of 2011, it is pretty well known that he was fading (and sheltered) long before then.
