S Africa was being ruled by long nosed Europeans with take them all ideology.If I am not far wrong, S Africa is where it is today because of continuous and immortal struggle the White and the Black engage in over the domination of the world treasury.Despite the state of awkwardness and retrogression in the land of the Black,N Mandela still tried his possible best to put something meaningfull in place.

South Africa current's president is Thabo Mbeki.
Will have served two terms by 2009, and he is constitutionally barred from running again. But Mbeki wants to remain chief of the ANC, a post that would give him a decisive say in who succeeds him. He's facing strong opposition from his former South African Deputy President Jacob Zuma, another ANC veteran who wants his turn at the helm of the country.

The British did and still do.  S. Africa is still not independent, why? Well, the original people of S. Africa do not own the military or the economy, this is still operated and ran by OUTSIDE interests...what a sham..and sadly..I think Nelson Mandela was in on it!!! He wasn't in prison for any number of years, when the heat got too hot for AMERICA to continue to support that racists regime, they put in place a plan to make it pseudo-independent, or make it appear as if it is independent.
  Think of it, what man who truly wants freedom, unconditional freedom, for its people would peacefully negotiate that freedom
..Martin Luther King was only successful because of the yang effect of Malcolm x..Gandhi?, he had that yang effect of Chandra Baos
