*this was a something the national party decided on from 1948 to 1999
*1994 Until 1999 Nelson Mendela was the President of South Africa and had been fighting against the apartheid act but couldn't quite stop it , and until December 5, 2013 when Nelson left us with all the good he has given the world and all the people he had set free of the evil doings of slavery he hadn't stopped fighting for the freedom of slaves.
*"Mandela will be remembered as a man who went beyond the call of duty. He showed his fellow countrymen that it was possible — perhaps even imperative — to forgive one's enemies. Mandela led by example, inspiring South Africa's political and racial rivals to work together to build a democracy. Mandela was such a powerful leader during apartheid that the white minority government considered him a threat to the state, even from prison"said South African President Jacob Zuma.
