South Africa & Nelson Mandela

South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is a country located at the southern tip of Africa. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (18 July 1918 — 5 December 2013) was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and politician who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the first black South African to hold the office, and the first elected in a fully representative, multiracial election. 5.0/5

Those talking about Buhari's age must remember that Nelson Mandela was 75 when he became President of South Africa.
The story behind David Goldblatt’s striking portrait of Nelson Mandela before he became President of South Africa:
Leadership in South Africa in the age of neo-colonialism The death of Nelson Mandela has rightly been described as signalling the end of an era, the era of nationalism which had dominated South African politics for more than 100 years. Afrikaner nationalism had died a painless death in its sleep sometime in the 1990s, about the time African nationalism seemed at last to have triumphed. But alas this triumph turned out to be short lived. A key ambition of African nationalism besides universal suffrage, according to Mandela, was the creation of an African capitalist class. Explaining the nationalisation clause of the Freedom Charter in 1956 Mandela wrote: "It is true that in demanding the nationalisation of the banks, the gold mines and the land the Charter strikes a fatal blow at the financial and gold-mining monopolies and farming interests that have for centuries plundered the country and condemned its people to servitude. But such a step is absolutely imperative and necessary because the realisation of ...
Tata Nelson Mandela he was a human being like everybody who is living in this world nothing was special about him. He was a cruel man who forgive white people but he didn't forgive his wife mama Mandela who was always there for him when he was in jail. Oliver Tambo was superior in intelligence but the ANC doesn't recognize him as a hero only Mandela because they have benefited a lot in his name. The ANC has steal DA policy of National Development Plan advocating capitalism. They deploy their concubines on high profile jobs hence qualified people are unemployed. Professor Jacob Zuma colonize our country to China since South Africa has been doing business with China has never create even a single job. Chinese are occupying the land in South Africa and doing business paying South Afrcans slave salaries. We are still underdog in our land remain landless that is our good story to tell. Stephen Biko didn't die a nature and he will never rest in peace a till this country renamed AZANIA. Regarding th Son of AZAN ...
NIGERIA 2015 It's no news that Nigeria's presidential election contest is between 2 major players; the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan and Rtd. Gen. General Muhammadu Buhari 2015 Support Group Centre, that seems to be the choices we are currently presented with. Then, there comes the issues around these individual's educational certificates. MY QUESTION: For what use will a certificate save Nigeria's current situation? More so, when the one with a PhD has demonstrated extensively that leadership has got nothing with educational certificates. MY OPINION: If Nigeria had worked as it should, Buhari would not have emerged at this point in our history. Now possibly we need this interjection to reorder this great country's destiny. Looking at two past great presidents makes me more hopeful: Ronald Reagan was 70 years old when he was sworn in as US president and he made history. Nelson Mandela was 80 years old when he became South Africa's president and he made history. If God will use Buhari to reshape Ni ...
Osinbajo: A Game Changer Of Nigerian Politics? History of great nations, great men and women are filled with salient events that change the present and shape the future in unprecedented manner. Like Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of United States of America, Winston Churchill of Britain and Nelson Mandela of South Africa, the emergence of Professor Yemi Osinbajo as the vice presidential candidate to the All Progressives Congress ( APC) has not only caused panic in the nation’s political quarters but has also triggered immediate return of other contenders to the drawing board on how to curtail the growing support base for APC. The strength of Osinbajo from the South-West zone of the country, now the ‘new’ kid on the country’s political block, suddenly became manifest to many who felt he stood no chance against heavy weights like Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State, Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, former governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi , Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lago ...
Faith and Forgiveness (My brother Douglas gave the ff. statement to family and friends on Christmas Day, 2014 at the Digos City Jail. I am trying to reproduce it as closely as I can) A while ago Mrs. Chiu asked me, "Why does God allow that the real killers remain free while those who have not committed a crime are in jail?” I find the answer in the book,”The Mystery of God’s Will” by Charles R. Swindoll”, a gift from Congresswoman Belma Cabilao who visited me in the hospital. I am in jail because it is part of God’s grand design for my life. Before God created me, He already knew what would happen to me. Being jailed for a crime I did not commit is inevitable because God planned it that way. How do I know that it is God’s will? It is through FAITH. I also draw inspiration from the life of Nelson Mandela who was incarcerated for almost 30 years. Mandela forgave all his jailers including his archenemy, De Clerc. His act of forgiveness led to the unification of South Africa. I now forgive the . ...

First of all if any man is going to "Islamize" Nigeria he has to pass through the National Assembly which is ruled by a Christian, besides God is not sleeping; one man attempted it before and we know where He ended up. Mandela became president of South Africa @ 76 and went ahead to set the road map for the South Africa we all envy today. Now tell how many 'younger' presidents have done better than Nelson Mandela of blessed memory? I really don't care much about who become the president like I care about what He intends to do as the president.

Yes my question is, where would South Africa be, had Mandela opted for the honourable route as a true representative of the people would have done, and not signed a deal with the devil for his own personal gain, pulling a Judas Iscariot on us? In the 1ST PICTURE, Nelson Mandela is pictured with Margaret Thatcher; at one point the most powerful woman in world politics. She was powerful simply because she was at the forefront of British Imperialism as Prime Minister, and she did serve with distinction to her masters. In 1987 Margaret Thatcher uttered these words: “The ANC is a typical terrorist organisation; anyone who thinks that the ANC is going to run the government in South Africa is living in cloud cuckoo-land.” If you don’t understand the involvement of Britain in South Africa, you would think that she was being defamatory; but Margaret Thatcher knew exactly what she was talking about, she understood what was going to happen. The ANC doesn’t govern South Africa; they are the faces of imperiali ...

Today in history 14 December, 1990 The African National Congress (ANC) held its first Consultative Conference in South Africa after thirty-one years from 14-16 December 1990. It was considered by the ANC as ranking in importance with such historic moments as the Congress of the People convened in June 1955; the Defiance Campaigns of 1952 and 1989; the launching of the United Democratic Front in 1983; and the release of Nelson Mandela on 11 February 1990.
OBASANJO AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF DESTRUCTION INSTEAD OF NATION BUILDING : Great leaders write on issues and ideas that move nations forward and advance the course of human development. Obafemi Awolowo and Nnamdi Azikiwe of Nigeria, Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Lee Kwan Yu wrote of Singapore, Nelson Mandela of South Africa, Ghandi of India, Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama of the United States, Winston Churchill and Tony Blair of the United Kingdom, etc, have all penned great works that have become inseparable companions of scholars, political leaders, policy makers, successful businessmen, senior government administrstors, military strategists and historians around the world. Our own supposed leader, Gen (rtd) Olusegun Obasanjo, at a critical time in our nation's history, when we are confronted by an unstable political system, a yet-to-be-defined economy and serious security issues that threaten our collective existence, has found the time to only write about mundane issues as who pleaded to marry his daughter, and how ...
How can I, young as I am and a true African patriot, a citizen of a beloved country like Azania (South Africa) – our only hope on the African continent and a country that has the potential to greatly contribute to the economic growth of Africa – support a government designed solely for self-centered individuals and not for all the people? We are exploited and misused by the same people who promised us a better life for all. It is sad to use the names and ideas of Steve Bantu Biko, Nelson Mandela, Albert Luthuli, Soll Plaatjie, Robert Sobukwe, Chris Hani, Sabelo Phama, Oliver Tambo, Steve Tshwete, Joe Slovo, Solomon Mahlangu, Tsietsi Mashinini, Onkgopotse Tiro, Vuyelwa Mashalaba, Lillian Ngoyi, Mama Tambo, Mama Sisulu, and many more unsung brave men and women and other liberation martyrs for personal ambitions, gains and so forth, while the world once they belong to has not changed much, especially in this country. People are still poor and it is worsening, yet passing of our struggle martyrs left void ...
10 December 2014 Just a mere 18 years later, South Africa has forgotten the signing into a Supreme Law, of its first democratic and world revered constitution. The National Broadcaster is currently having a TNA Breakfast marking the end of 16 Days of what what... with a mention of this day being the International Human Rights Day... Is this deliberate or just how insignificant this book signed by Nelson Mandela is to this nation?
Nelson Mandela: The Symbol of Resistance Soon after Nelson Mandela and others were charged in the Rivonia Trial in October 1963, we secured, as noted elsewhere, a General Assembly resolution calling for the abandonment of the trial and the unconditional release of all political prisoners in South Africa (with only South Africa voting against). For many months, the campaign against the Rivonia Trial was the main preoccupation of the Special Committee against Apartheid and of the anti-apartheid movement, especially in Britain. On April 21, 1964, Nelson Mandela, accused no1, made his historic statement from the dock. Mary Benson sent me the text of the statement and I arranged to have it published as a document of the Special Committee in its official languages.2 The speech has been reprinted by the United Nations in pamphlets and distributed widely. It was also published by the ANC and other organizations. It had great effect in inspiring people around the world and helping them understand and appreciate th ...

Is Gandhian Mode of Protest (Satyagraha) still relevant? Satyagraha is the method of resistance and mass movement developed by Gandhi during his days in South Africa and later epitomised in India during its freedom struggle against British Empire. Satyagraha was developed as a broad term for techniques of civil disobedience, non cooperation, Hunger Strike and protest. Satyagraha is a portmanteau of the Sanskrit words Satya (meaning "truth") and Agraha ("insistence", or "holding firmly to"). For Gandhi, Satyagraha went far beyond mere "passive resistance" and became strength in practising non-violent methods. Later on Satyagraha went to become the most successful resistance technique and inspired many other great leaders like Martin Luther King Junior, Nelson Mandela and others. Not only it led to freedom of our country but also created a cadre of thousands of activists for whom it became a mode of life and they were there to shape India's future in right form to ensure not just independence but also to th ...

Graça Machel - is the only woman in history to have been First Lady of two separate republics, serving as the First Lady of Mozambique from 1975 to 1986 and the First Lady of South Africa from 1998 to 1999.

Soweto owes more for electricity than the rest of South Africa put together. Soweto is home to 1.5 million people who, between them, owe state power utility Eskom R3.6-billion ($327 million) in unpaid electricity bills. Ten years ago Eskom was forced to write off R1.4-billion in debts owed by Sowetans, creating the impression for residents that they can get away with it. "If you remember, when this government entered they said 'Free electricity for all'. Tell me: what does that mean?" asks Madiba, a 57-year-old community activist and member of the Soweto Electricity Crisis Committee (SECC). "That's the bed Eskom made and they are starting to sleep in it. I don't know what else you can actually do," said economist Chris Hart at Johannesburg consultancy Investment Solutions. Although Soweto's outstanding debt is dwarfed by the R225-billion revenue shortfall Eskom says it faces over the next 4-5 years, it is important symbolically as the utility battles to raise money for new power stations needed to keep th ...
I see President Higgins in South Africa visiting Robin Island where once dissident Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for thirty years. Would Fine Gael and Labour equally criticise Mr Mandela for standing up against his then government or is their criticism of "dissents" confined to decent Irish people who are too objecting to what's going on in their country - under what they perceive to be a very wrong government? Before Fine Gael and Labour use the term "dissent" again, they should remember that the founders so our state were so called too! Convenient blindness when it only suits them in PR spin?

Fans try out their Vuvuzelas on Johannesburg's Nelson Mandela Square just before FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa kicks off.
After much promptings and in spite of stallings, South Africa's then President Nelson Mandela is finallyable to get ailing Zairean president Mobutu Sese Seko and rebel leader Laurent Kabila to the negotiating table on board the South Africa Navy vessel SAS Oueteniqua on May, 9, 1997. This was to be Kabila's first face to face meeting with Mobutu since the rebel insurgency in Zaire and the rebels were even reported to be closing in on Zaire's capital city Kinshasha at the time. Kabila had been worried about his own personal safety and hesitated many times on honouring this meeting until some angry promptings from Mandela finally convinced him. The talks however failed to produce a ceasefire agreement and neither would the headstrong Mobutu agree to resign or go into exile. Fighting was to continue and Mobutu would flee into exile in Morocco where he would finally succumb in hospital to prostate cancer on September 7, 1997. Kabila was to become the leader of the new Democratic Republic of Congo afterwar ...
On a recent trip to South Africa, Pretoria, an interesting site caught my attention and I hope you find this fascinating as much as I did. Firstly, the name of the highway is Voortrekker-which is dutch for "Fore-Movers" (Those who moved first). Secondly, right across the sign with the name of the road is a huge billboard of Nelson Mandela with a quote on freedom. Not directed to South Africans but Palestinians. Thirdly, just some few meters away from the billboard is the Voortrekker Monument. A structure erected by the first Dutch settlers of Tshwane. From there, they fought the Zulu people.
I CAME ACROSS THIS PIECE BUHARI IS INFACT YOUNG AT 72 TO BE NIGERIAN NEXT PRESIDENT General Buhari was born on December 17, 1942. He is 72 years in 2014. He will be 73 in 2015. Still young to be President of Nigeria! This nonsense about age is also faulted on the grounds that good leadership is not necessarily defined by age. It is also not defined by high learning – PhD and all that. Good leadership is innate divine endowment. But it can also be nurtured at times. From my research (ably assisted by my friend, Okoi Obono-Obla) I list some 15 examples of leaders, both in Africa and abroad who are older – some much older-than General Buhari. Let me start with our neighbour, Liberia, with its great lady president:Presi dent Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President 2006 at age 70. She was 75 in 2011. She will remain president till 2016.

Barack Obama has categorically and emphatically stated to the African continent, when elected as U.S president that; ''i'll invite only two personality whom i trusted and honour in Africa to attend my presidential oath taking, whom are Gen. Muhammadu Buhari from Nigeria and Nelson Mandela from South Africa.''.fellow Nigerians, if Obama has clearly stated to the world that, he honor and trusted Buhari, then please, why are we hesitating in supporting Buhari to be the nigerian PRESIDENT? Why shouldn't we reason with his reputations? Let keep sentiment aside, because he's not sentimental in any form, be it religious, ethnicity, selfish interest etc. Lets wake up and see the reality.

Benjamin PogrundBenjamin Pogrund was brought up in Cape Town. He began a career as a journalist in 1958, writing for the Rand Daily Mail in Johannesburg, where he eventually became deputy-editor. The Rand Daily Mail was the only newspaper in South Africa at that time to report on events in black South Africa townships. In the course of his work he came to know the major players in the Apartheid struggle and gained the respect and confidence of leaders such as Nelson Mandela.[1]Pogrund was a reporter at the Sharpeville massacre on 21 March 1960. He was author of a 1965 series on beating and torture of black inmates and maltreatment of white political priosners. During his career reporting on Apartheid in South Africa he was put on trial several times, put in prison once, had his passport revoked and was investigated as a threat to the state by security police".When the Rand Daily Mail ceased publication in 1985, Pogrund left for London in 1986. There he was chief foreign sub-editor of The Independent, ...
Great Leaders who are traders in hope are remembered by everyone People follow you when you give them hope. Many great leaders did not give them money or expensive cars or materials but people remember them for giving them hope. Their legacy is forever remembered because of what they have done to give hope and add value to humanity. Mahatma Ghandi (lawyer) of India gave hope to hopeless Indians when he led Indians who were oppressed and ruled by the Imperial British Monarch. Dr. Martin Luther King Jnr (Baptist Pastor) gave hope to the African Americans and helped end racial oppression and discrimination/segregation by the whites and help unite the blacks and white. Mother Theresa (Catholic nun) who gave hope to the poor and neglected people of India and other countries. Nelson Mandela who ended the apartied rule by the whites’ minority and teach the meaning of forgiveness to the world. Each one of those great leaders gave hope to the hopeless and add value to humanity. But Jesus Christ came to give the ...
Paul Trewhela says the murderous Zanu-PF leader is "no hero of African liberation" Cheering for Mugabe at the tribute to Mandela South Africans need to think about Gukurahundi, what it means for South Africa - and what it means, when it means so little. Robert Mugabe received loud cheers when he appeared at the memorial tribute to Nelson Mandela at FNB Stadium in Soweto on Tuesday 10 December. Similarly, Andile Mngxitama - who spoke on the BBC television programme, Question Time, two days later in a debate staged in Johannesburg, wearing the red beret of Julius Malema's Economic Freedom Fighters - published an article in the Sunday Independent on 2 June this year under the title, "Mugabe hero of African liberation." According to Mngxitama's opening sentence, "President Robert Mugabe is the greatest black statesman alive today in Africa." The question is: What does it mean, when South Africans celebrate Robert Mugabe? There is no question that Mugabe ordered the mass murder of more than 20,000 isiNdebele-s ...
Nelson Mandela frequently declared that "Palestine was the greatest moral issue of our time". After we toppled the Apartheid regime in 1994, he went further, saying "We South Africans cannot consider ourselves free until the Palestinian People are free". Millions of us in South Africa collectively recoiled from Israel's gruesome assault on the people of Gaza during those 51 nightmarish days of "Operation Protective Edge" and the attendant ongoing cruelty in the West Bank. As the dust settled, we were left shocked beyond belief as we witnessed a community of 1.8 million in ruins; Khozaa, Shujaiyya, Beit Hanoun, with entire families and neighbourhoods, gone. According to the United Nations, 2,131 Palestinians were killed during Israel's offensive. Of those 501 were children, with 70 percent under 12. The Ministry of Health in Gaza recorded 10,918 people injured including 3,312 children and 2,120 women. According to the United Nations, 244 schools were shelled and one used as a military base by Israeli soldi ...
Forward this to everyone for CHANGE " If the ANC does to you what the apartheid government did to you, then you must do to the ANC what you did to the apartheid government " - Nelson Mandela speaking to South Africa's Trade Union Congress in July 1993
On 4 October Soweto will be marching for Rhinos, Elephants & Lions. Soweto, for those not familiar with South Africa, is an acronym for South Western Townships and is in the south of Johannesburg with a population of around 1.3 million. It was the site of the famous June 16 student uprising in 1976 and has a rich political and cultural history. At the Global Lion March in Johannesburg in March we had a contingent of 65 dancers/singers from Soweto, led by the energetic Fats Maluleka, and they provided unbelievable energy that drove the marchers on – actually way past the end of the route! These performers were so passionate about doing right by the lions and spoke from the heart when interviewed. We are having many of them back with us at the Johannesburg march on 4 October and some will become part of the Soweto march on the same day. The Soweto march is being led by Tebogo Boikanyo, a young dance performer, who really wants to make a difference for all animals. The march was initiated by Linda Park and ...
Loved the book Good Morning Mr Mandela by Zelda la Grange. Zelda la Grange grew up in South Africa as a white Afrikaner who supported the rules of segregation. Yet just a few years after the end of Apartheid she would become a most trusted assistant to Nelson Mandela, growing to respect and cherish the man she had been taught was the enemy. Good Morning, Mr Mandela tells the extraordinary story of how a young woman had her life, beliefs, prejudices and everything she once believed in utterly transformed by the greatest man of her time. It is the incredible journey of an awkward, terrified young typist in her twenties later chosen to become the President's most loyal and devoted servants, spending most of her adult working life travelling with, supporting and caring for the man she would come to call 'Khulu', or 'grandfather'. Here Zelda pays tribute to Nelson Mandela as she knew him, a teacher who gave her the most valuable lessons of her life. A man who refused to defined by his past, who forgave and res ...
"Who's Nelson Mandela?". Me:"Former President of South Africa. : "I thought Obama was the first black president?" 😂😂
"Where is courage? The character to proceed even in spite of fear. I think we will all do well to remember that Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King led from the front in the civil rights movement in the US, so did Nelson Mandela in the struggle against apartheid in South Africa, so did Lee Kuan Yew in the agitation for Singapore‘s independence. Barack Obama has been to the war fronts in countries where American troops (young men and women) are put in harm’s way, to inspire them. As racially divided as America was in the days of Martin Luther King, he did not seek to divide the country and impose black rule over white. He dreamt and worked hard to unify divided people. Nelson Mandela sacrificed personal liberty for the emancipation of his people and surrendered presidential power for a higher power – a moral authority – that made him the father of a continent and a global leadership reference, when by clinging to power he could not have been more than a president of one of the world’s 196 (One Hund ...

At Anglo-French conference Lord Salisbury once joked after dinner “We have been engaged in drawing lines upon maps where no white mans foot ever trod: we have been giving away mountains and rivers and lakes to each other, only hindered by the small impediment that we never knew exactly where the mountains and rivers and lakes were" This nonsensical act of imperialists which happened in late eighteenth century has resulted in Africa having 14 landlocked African countries. Take Lesotho for instance it is forced to rely on South Africa for both its economic activities and security, her economic policies will not be sufficient if they do not speak to the character of relations it has with South Africa. These arbitrary boarders created unimaginable problems for post-colonial governments. When these boarders were drawn colonizers obsessions were to reach a compromise among themselves on looting and plundering the continent, they were motivated by their economic interest as opposed to what Africa needs.

Nelson Mandela's second wife Winne challenges his will, demands house: Nelson Mandela's second wife, Winnie, has launched a legal challenge to the will of the late anti-apartheid leader, the latest sign of feuding and bad blood in South Africa's first family. In a letter sent by her lawyer to the executors of Mandela's estate, Madikizela-Mandela argued that her children should be in charge of Mandela's ancestral home at Qunu in the Eastern Cape, where he was buried in December. Madikizela-Mandela, a firebrand anti-apartheid activist who got divorced from Mandela in 1996 after it emerged she had cheated on him during his 27 years in prison, said she had bought the Qunu property in 1989 while Mandela was still behind bars, giving her ownership rights under traditional law. Madikizela-Mandela was left nothing from Mandela's $4.1 million estate, which was divided between his family, the ruling African National Congress party, former staff and several schools. Each of his six children and some of his 17 grandc ...

South African GandhIan Nelson Mandela Feature : Mandela Day Dr. P.J. Sudhakar* Nelson Mandela, a true Gandhian adopted democratic methods for achieving Human Rights, freedom and emancipation of Blacks from the South African apartheid regime. As a leader, Nelson Mandela can be compared to radical reformers like Mahatma Gandhi, Garibaldi of Italy and Lenin of Soviet Union who waged life-long struggles for freedom and human dignity. He led the struggle against apartheid- the inhuman practice of racial discrimination followed by rulers in South Africa. Mandela’s relentless crusade fructified in getting equal rights for Black people who were denied the basic rights to equality, freedom, human dignity and right to life. Nelson Mandela spent 27 years of his life in the prisons of oppressive white rulers. Eventually, the Pretoria government had to release him in the autumn of 1990. The Indian Government honored Mandela with Nehru Peace Prize in 1980 and the highest civilian award Bharat Ratna conferred on him i ...

Nelson Mandela tasked the formation of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission (TRC) of South Africa.
In the aftermath of the passing away of one of the world’s greatest statesmen and Nobel laureate, Nelson Mandela, it was most intriguing to read the condolence messages that came out from the leaders of the different countries. This includes of course, our own President’s message.Still, in order to get a sense of the genuineness of these messages, it was necessary to relate what was being said, to who was saying it. Therefore, when Pope Francis, a modest and pro people’s pope stated that Mr Mandela had forged “a new South Africa built on the firm foundations of non-violence, reconciliation and truth”, there was no reason to doubt the sentiment expressed. Similarly, why should one doubt Ban Ki-moon whose message read: “Let us continue each day to be inspired by Nelson Mandela’s lifelong example”. He also described him as “a giant for justice and a down-to-earth human inspiration”. Other messages that one would not have difficulty in accepting as genuine were: Angela Merkel of German ...

In alignment to the Nelson Mandela Foundation, we strongly believe that indeed a global movement for positive change begins with small actions. As each person acts, they fuel momentum toward positive change, raising awareness and expanding the reach of Mr Mandela’s values – fighting injustice, helping people in need and practicing reconciliation. 2014 is particularly symbolic as we work to honour a great South African statesman and make every day a Mandela Day as we mark South Africa’s 20 years ...

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela 18 July 1918 – 5 December 2013 The 1950s The new National Party government was determined to suppress opposition by all available means. To oppose the new legislation, the ANC and other organisations called a “stay-away” - a strike where the workers do not picket or demonstrate, but stay indoors - for 1 May 1950. On May Day during working hours the stay-away was a success, but in the evening the regime’s police started attacking people in the township streets and massacred 18 in Alexandra and the West Rand. The National Party government passed the Suppression of Communism Act and the Communist Party of South Africa was forced to disband. The response of the ANC and its allies was to call another stay-away for June 26th, 1950. This one was an even bigger success, and there was no massacre. The ANC and its allies in the Joint Planning Council then called on the government to repeal the Suppression of Communism Act, the Group Areas Act, the Separate Representation of Voters ...

Sachs honoured for contribution to Human Rights 2014-06-21 14:23 Taipei – Judge Albie Sachs was on Saturday awarded the Tang Prize, touted as Asia's version of the Nobel, for his contributions to Human Rights and justice. Sachs, who lost an arm and the sight of one eye in a car-bombing by apartheid forces in Mozambique in 1988 and was later appointed to South Africa's Constitutional Court by former President Nelson Mandela, was recognised "for his many contributions to Human Rights and justice globally”, said the Tang Prize Foundation. In particular, the foundation recognised his efforts "in the realisation of the rule of law in a free and democratic South Africa". He will receive R18m, with about R14m in cash and the remainder in a research grant after winning the inaugural prize in the rule of law category. The 79-year-old, who began practicing law at age 21, often defended people charged under the apartheid regime, and was arrested and subjected to torture as a result. In 1966, he went into exile t ...

Has The Western World’s Love Affair With South Africa Ended? Ever since that historic emergence of Nelson Mandela from nearly three decades of incarceration, the peaceful transformation into majority rule and the Truth and Reconciliation Hearings, the world has had a Love Affair with South Africa and its People. Mandela –Mania has continued to this day, being seen as representing forgiveness, reconciliation, lasting peace and national unity not seen since the formation of the United Nations after 1945. The adoption of an ultra-liberal Constitution, which provided a promise of a just and humane society was further hope that the post-independent dictatorships and demagogues in post colonial Africa, were a thing of the past and that South Africa was the new hope for a continent fraught with conflicts, political instability, poverty and perennial under-development; hence the Love Affair with the Rainbow Nation since 1994. The road ahead still required attestation that this “experiment” would work; th ...
