An SA Perspective

Words from South Africa

20 years of freedom for Mandela

Today marks the 20th anniversary of former South African President, Nelson Mandela release from prison.

According to Cyril Ramaphosa, a leader in Mandela’s African National Congress, “We knew that his freedom meant that our freedom had also arrived.”

President Jacob Zuma has chosen this day specifically to address the SA public with his State of the Nation speech to commemorate the release of Mandela.
