There'll be plenty of snide comments on here from those who lost their privileged position as rulers of the roost in South Africa because of Mandela (and from their arse-lickers who see "Saffers" as good ol' boys ) but Mandela had the guts to stand up to the minority lording it over the majority. The people who've followed him at the helm of South Africa are a bunch of cnuts, but getting rid of apartheid had to be done, and he played a big role in the doing of it.

Nkosi sikelel' iAfrika.
