Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela was born on July-18-1918, from the Thembu royal family in Mvezo, British South Africa.

Nelson Mandela was a man who touched hearts and souls. His tireless struggle for freedom and human dignity earned him the respect of the world. He committed himself to bringing peace and became a symbol of reconciliation. Mandela spent 27 years of his life in prison. He was sentenced to lifetime imprisonment for political offenses, including sabotage at first. It was thanks to his ending up in prison, though, that the world started to impose sanctions on South Africa, leading to the abandonment of Apartheid (the policy of racial segregation and discrimination that existed for many years in South Africa) by the government and, ultimately, Mandela regaining his freedom in 1990.

Once a free man again, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and helped lead South Africa to its first, free, democratic election. Nelson Mandela was elected the country’s first black president in 1994. As president, he faced the huge task of forging a new nation out of the deep racial injustices left over from the Apartheid era.

It was during this period that Nelson Mandela and Michael Jackson, sharing a mutual devotion to humanity and humanitarian causes, became friends. In July 1996, Michael Jackson attended a private birthday party for President Mandela. Two days later he made a brief courtesy call at the president’s official Pretoria home. Michael told reporters, “This is a wonderful, lovely man. I love Nelson Mandela very much.” The two posed for photographers, Michael embracing Nelson Mandela with a broad smile.

HWMCO Say: Nelson Mandela is the father of fathers in Africa. He is a freedom fighter and loved children. We shall follow his footsteps of fighting for freedom and the rights of the children. We are brothers and sisters.
