Surf trip description:

Have you ever heard that Nelson Mandela’s father would have been the oldest person alive during that time period since he lived up until being 128 years old (1800-1928)? And did you know that Nelson Mandela was in jail twice for his participation in movement against the government segregation? And did you know that he became the president of South Africa for 4 years in a row?

Introduction

Nelson Mandela was born on July 18, 1918, in a village called Mvezo in Umtata in South Africa. He was then called by the name Madiba. His Grandfather was the king Theubu which is South Africa Modern Eastern Cape province. Nelson’s father named Gadla Henry Mphakanyiswa lived for 128 years and he was a chief of his tribe. His father had in total four wife’s, nine daughters and four sons in total.

Nelson’s mother was the third out of four wives that the father had. Myezo only lived with two sisters and his mother. Shockingly his father wasn’t there for him since a young age because he grew to an old age, he passed

When he grew up he was named Mandela by his teacher from the school that he attended. Nelson was a good student all along. He was also the first person to go and get an education in his family. Nelson finished primary studies at a missionary school that was in his village that he lived in. Then he also went to Clarkebury which was a secondary school. He earned his diplomas since he went to middle and high school. And then he also enrolled at the University of Fort Hare, but after a year of getting accepted into the university, he and few of his friends got kicked out from the school because they weren’t following the university’s policies. He then got interested in law so he went to study law at the Witwatersrand university. Following that year, he joined an African National Congress. He eventually earned a Law degree. He then he got married and then had 4 children. Unfortunately, he later divorced his wife.

African National Congress

Nelson was affected by the apartheid, Apartheid started in 1948 where few ruling people were encouraging policies to separate the colored people from the pale ones. Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela joined ANC or African National Congress because he did not like segregation. He worked hard to change the rules of segregation, but the police were cracking down on anyone who would sabotage the government that was oppressing all colored people and any person who seeks freedom. Nelson was then thrown in jail for 27 years because he was against the government and its rules.

  He was affected by the apartheid because was discriminated by others which made him feel like a second-class citizen or not a welcomed person. Nelson was upset because he wanted to stop it soon but not able because he could not do things that others could because he was in jail for 27 years, so it took a long time to end apartheid

Conclusion

Nelson Mandela worked so hard to become the leader of ANC “the African National Congress”. But then, he discussed the apartheid to Klerk (which was the president of South Africa at the time) so they could end apartheid, so everyone will be treated equally. They finally negotiated to end segregation and they finally did end it. Now everyone is treated equally, and colored people can vote in South Africa to whoever they will want the president. Then Nelson Mandela was elected for president in the year of 1994.

People in South Africa with leader such Nelson Mandela will be respected so all be treated equally among each other. Even though apartheid lasted for nearly about five decades. After the end of apartheid Mandela worked hard to bring peace and improvement to South Africa, he won the Nobel peace prize in 1993.
