Nelson Mandela

 

Former South African President and anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela has died from complications related to a recurring lung infection. He was 95.

Mandela was elected South Africa’s first black president by a near two-thirds margin in 1994, after spending 27 years in prison for his role as a leader in South Africa’s anti-apartheid movement. He served as president for five years, until retiring in 1999.

For his part in ending apartheid, Mandela was awarded the US Presidential Medal of Freedom and the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize, among many others.

Nelson Mandela was truly an amazing man of love, peace and democracy… if only more leaders were like him the world we be a better place.
