Nelson Mandela Supporter Wearing Poster

Nelson Mandela Supporter Wearing Poster

A Nelson Mandela admirer struts after the President Mangope is ousted by the ANC (African National Congress). Mangope refused to let Bophuthatswana residents to vote in South Africa's first democratic elections, which led to violence and protest in the homeland. A longtime political prisoner, Nelson Mandela was held by the apartheid based government from 1964-1990 for sabotage. With the coming of a freer political climate, Mandela was released from his life sentence at Victor Vester Prison on February 11, 1990. He went on to lead the African National Congress in negotiations with President F. W. de Klerk, that resulted in the end of apartheid and full citizenship for all South Africans. He and de Klerk received a joint Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 for their efforts. Mandela was elected president in 1994.
