IPSC: Anti-apartheid icon, Nelson Mandela died

Nelson Mandela died at the age of 95. The first black president of South Africa and anti-apartheid activist has died  on 5th December 2013.

Mandela led South Africa’s transition from white-minority rule in the 1990s, after 27 years in prison for his political activities.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said Mandela was “a giant for justice and a down-to-earth human inspiration”.

“Many around the world were greatly influenced by his selfless struggle for human dignity, equality and freedom. He touched our lives in deeply personal ways.”

US President Barack Obama said Mr Mandela achieved more than could be expected of any man.

“He no longer belongs to us – he belongs to the ages,” he said, adding that Mr Mandela “took history in his hands and bent the arc of the moral universe towards justice”.
