Former South African president Nelson Mandela has died at the age of 95 according the current South African president.
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary and politician who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the first black South African to hold the office, and the first elected in a fully representative, multiracial election. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid through tackling institutionalized racism, poverty and inequality, and fostering racial reconciliation.
Mandela’s health has been failing in recent years, and he is been hospitalized on several occasions. My heartfelt condolences go out to Mandela’s family during this hard time. The nation has lost a great man, but heaven has gain an angel.
