Mandela fought against South Africa’s apartheid government and spent 27 years in prison. After his released in 1990, he worked with the incumbent South African President FW de Klerk to abolish apartheid. He won the first multiracial election held in 1994 and became South Africa`s first black president.
Nelson Mandela, fondly called Madiba by Africans, died on 5 December due to lung cancer.
