Madiba “Father of A Nation 1918-2013

MAndela-art

“No one in my family had ever attended school. On the first day of school my teacher, Miss Mdingane, gave each of us an English name. This was the custom among Africans in those days and was undoubtedly due to the British bias of our education. That day, Miss Mdingane told me that my new name was Nelson. Why this particular name? I have no idea.”

— Mandela, 1994

Mandela was born on July 18, 1918 in the village of Mvezo in Umtatu, then a part of South Africa’s Cape Province.[1] Given the forename Rolihlahla, a Xhosa term colloquially meaning “troublemaker”,[1] in later years he became known by his clan name, Madiba.[2] His patrilinealgreat-grandfather, Ngubengcuka, was ruler of the Thembu people in the Transkeian Territories of South Africa’s modern Eastern Cape province. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela born 18 July 1918 is a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and politician who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the first black South African to hold the office, and the first elected in a fully representative, multiracial election. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid through tackling institutionalised racism, poverty and inequality, and fostering racial reconciliation. Politically an African nationalist and democratic socialist, he served as the President of the African National Congress (ANC) from 1991 to 1997. Internationally, Mandela was the Secretary General of the Non-Aligned Movementfrom 1998 to 1999. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela born 18 July 1918 is a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and politician who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999.
