Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela - Nelson Mandela. (Born 18 July 1918) is a South African politician who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999, the first to be elected in a fully representative democratic election. Before being elected President, Mandela was a militant anti-apartheid activist, and the leader and co-founder of Umkhonto we Sizwe, the armed wing of the African National Congress (ANC).
I read a post on FB just this morning that invited me to reflect deeply. It was by a cousin of mine who lives in Britain. She was commenting on educating her children about the legacy of Nelson Mandela, who as I write is currently in ‘critical condition’.
