Nelson mandela

Nelson Mandela was born on july 18 1918 he grew up in a small village called Rolihlahla Mandela at Mvezo in the Transkei,his parents were Nosekeni Fanny and Gadla Hephakanyiswa. Nelson Mandela had 9 siblings.

Rolihlahla Mandela  went to a local Mission school in his Home village Mvenao,When he received and educations to Clarkebury to boarding school Institute for his Junior Certificate. Then he went to a secondary school which was called Wesleyan.  When Rolihlahla Mandela was still in school he came a long to a teacher who called him Nelson because the teach couldn't pronounce his name properly.

In 1962 Mandela was arrested and charged with high treason along with his collaborators. The Rivonia Trial, as it came to be known would turn Mandela into a symbol of the struggle against apartheid.

In 1990 nelson mandela was finally released from jail, But he still thought against the white to get equal rights. He was Elected by Parliament as the  first president of a democratic in South Africa. Then he launched his autobiography long walk to freedom.

What i learnt from nelson mandela was to treat people respectfully weather they are the same color as you or not. Treat others the way you want to be treated.
