Mandela was jailed for 27 years for opposing apartheid, contracted tuberculosis in prison, and worked to promote racial reconciliation after he was released from prison. In 1993, he shared the peace prize with de Klerk, the last president of the apartheid regime in South Africa.
in 1994, Mandela was elected the first black president of South Africa and resigned five years later. People held flowers and candles to mourn Mandela’s death. On July 18, 1918, Mandela was born in mwezo village, transkay region, Cape Province, South Africa. His father was a member of the tengbu royal family and a local chief. Mandela’s mother was one of his father’s four wives. One of Mandela’s names is Raleigh rahla, which means “pull out the trunk” in Kosa and also means “troublemaker”. When Mandela was 10 years old, his father’s sudden death brought great changes to his life.
the Regent, who had been helped by his father, extended a helping hand and assumed the responsibility of raising Mandela as an adult. According to the life designed by the regent for Mandela: when he grows up, his son will inherit his father’s career and become a local chief. However, Mandela, who was not satisfied with the status quo, was full of longing and longing for the outside world. When he encountered the “arranged marriage” of the Regent, he chose to go out to study. From then on, he left his hometown where he was born and grew up and began his legendary experience. Mandela, the 46664 prisoner who “put the bottom of the prison through”, is one of the few people in the family who have received higher education. After leaving his hometown, he came to the University of helburg to study and began to contact law. Later, he met his lifelong Comrade Oliver Tabor. In the 1940s of last century, the racial contradiction in South Africa has been very prominent. The white government oppressed blacks and caused black resistance.
Mandela joined the African National Congress of South Africa (ANC) advocating non violent struggle in 1944, and successively served as the Executive Committee of ANC, President of Transvaal province and vice president of the country. In 1961, Mandela led a strike movement to protest and resist the “Republic of South Africa” established by white racists; Since then, he was appointed commander-in-chief of the military organization “national spear”. In August 1962, he was arrested and jailed and sentenced to five years’ imprisonment for “incitement” and “illegal border crossing”. In June 1964, he was charged with “attempting to overthrow the government by violence” and sentenced to life imprisonment. Mandela was held in Robben Island prison for 18 years, and his prison clothes number was 46664. Since then, he has been transferred to two other prisons.
even though he was in prison, Mandela did not give up his strong belief in opposing racism and establishing an equal and free New South Africa. He insisted that the white government abolish the apartheid policy and fought for it in prison for 27 spring and autumn. He was persecuted and tortured and never changed his original intention. On February 11, 1990, under the pressure of public opinion at home and abroad, the South African authorities were forced to announce the unconditional release of Mandela. The gray haired but still unyielding Mandela walked out of prison as a winner, which is considered to be the most exciting moment of the 20th century. Mandela, the National Father of the “Rainbow country”, was appointed Vice Chairman and acting chairman by the National Executive Committee of the African National Congress. He was elected chairman in July 1991. In April 1994, the ANC won the first non racial general election in South Africa.
in May of the same year, Mandela became the first black president of South Africa. After taking power, Mandela did not retaliate against the white people in South Africa, but extended a friendly hand to them and promoted national reconciliation in South Africa in order to heal the wounds of this contradictory country. Through unremitting efforts, Mandela finally created a new rainbow country. Regardless of skin color and gender, he can live freely and equally in this new South Africa. Mandela’s move was also recognized by the world. He also won the Nobel Peace Prize with his former rival de Klerk in 1993. At the turn of the century, he was also selected as “20 people who influenced the political and social structure of the 20th century”. In 1999, Mandela, whose reputation reached Ding Feng, did not seek re-election, but chose to retreat bravely. After the retirement of
, he did not completely withdraw from the public view, but continued to promote the efforts of African countries in the fight against AIDS. On November 10, 2009, the 64th General Assembly adopted a resolution,His birthday on July 18 every year is designated as “Mandela International Day” to recognize his contribution to peace and freedom. After 2010, Mandela rarely appeared in public. After more than 20 years in prison, his lungs became his “Achilles heel”, so he was hospitalized several times. On June 8, 2013, he was urgently hospitalized again due to pulmonary infection. In the following six months, disease and aging became the last two opponents in his life.
