Nelson Mandela Autograph
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was
born on the 18th July 1918 in the Transkei, South Africa. Described by former UK Prime Minister. Margaret
Thatcher, as a terrorist, he served twenty seven years in prison for
politically motivated acts of sabotage.
However, following his release, he became South
Africa's first democratically elected President and was revered around
the world for his courage in his attempts to find a path of reconciliation
not just for the injustices he and his fellow South Africans endured under
Apartheid, but for the entire continent of Africa which he dreams will one
day be united. "If you
want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then
he becomes your partner." He died on 5th December 2013.
