What helped to end apartheid in South Africa?
AN oil embargo helped end apartheid in South Africa. Another thing that helped end apartheid was that in 1991 the South African government repealed apartheid laws.
Who was elected President of South Africa in the first multiracial elections after the end of apartheid?
Nelson Mandela helped change the racial laws that governed South Africa. This was called apartheid, which rendered blacks as second class citizens. Along with F.W. De Klerk, the A.N.C, and other civic leaders, Mandela was instrumental in helping end apartheid. He also helped form a new multi-ethnic and democratic government in South Africa.
Mandela was jailed in apartheid-era South Africa because he was a member of the African National Congress. The ANC was a militant, anti-apartheid political party. Mandela was one of the leaders that helped end the apartheid era, and was voted as president by the South African parliament. F. W. de Klerk, the last apartheid era president, also helped end apartheid, and got to be Mandela's Deputy President as a reward. There is NOTHING available online…
Nelson Mandela had made a contribution to the end of South African apartheid by standing up for civil rights for black South Africans. He was then elected as president of South Africa, where his example of forgiving and peacefully interacting with people who had recently marginalized and imprisoned him helped to unify the blacks and whites in South Africa.
Segregation was part of Apartheid and segregation officially ended with the end of Apartheid. Today, certain areas of South Africa still seem racially imbalanced. That is since during the Apartheid era, South Africans developed strong bonds within their own communities and continued to live together even after the end of Apartheid, although people have total freedom to live where they want to.
Why did Apartheid end? A combination of events is a reasonable answer. Internal opposition to Apartheid had grown strongly and many areas of South African cities, inhabited by black South Africans, had become ungovernable. There was also considerable labour unrest and strikes were common. There were also occasional bomb attacks. The economy of the country was being affected by both events at home and a growing campaign.adt
