Mandela dead

The man who made “The Miracle of Africa” possible

Ex-president Nelson Mandela died on 5 December 2013 shortly before 21:00. He was 95.

The most famous of all South Africans, is a man who was found guilty of sabotage because he opposed the political system which denied him the vote, was sentenced to life imprisonment, released after twenty-seven years in jail, became the first black president of his country, and led it to a peaceful transition to democracy.

Rohihlahla (the name means “shaking the branch of a tree” or “troublemaker”) Nelson Mandela, was born on 18 July 1918 in Transkei, in the south eastern part of South Africa.

Mandela was a prominent member of the African National Congress (ANC) which was formed in 1912 to promote the inclusion of black people in the government of the country. Its aim was to use peaceful means to convince the white government to allow a political system of one-man-one-vote. Successive white dominated governments refused the claim due to the fear white people had of being ruled by black people.

After the ANC decided that peaceful means would not get the black people political freedom, Mandela formed Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) which means “Spear of the Nation”, as the military wing of the ANC.

In June 1964 he was convicted of sabotage and sentenced to life imprisonment. He spent 27 years of his sentence in jail, most of it on the infamous Robben Island.

After FW de Klerk became president of South Africa, he started dismantling the policy of “apartheid” (separate development) which was the official policy of the ruling National Party for more that 40 years.

In February 1990 Mandela was released, and on 27 April 1994, the first democratic elections in South Africa took place. The ANC won the elections and Mandela became the first black president of South Africa.

The transition of power to the black majority in South Africa is often referred to as The Miracle of Africa, because never in Africa, and rarely in the world, did the transfer of power from an oppressor to the opressed occurred without violence.

The “miracle” can be ascribed to Mandela’s convictions about violence. He opposed violence and would only accept it as a last resort to political change. He constantly reminded his supporters that the liberation struggle was a fight against a system of oppression and not against any group of people.

Had Mandela chosen to instruct the black masses after the 1994 elections to avenge the wrongs of the past, South Africa would have been plunged into a bloody civil war.

In his autobiography he said: “. . . . for to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others” .

History will vouch that South Africa enjoyed a historic transition to democracy without violence, because of the choice that one man made. The choice of peace above violence.

Nelson Mandela retired from public life in June 1999.
