Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was the first South African president to be elected in a fully representative democratic election in 1994. He was also the first non-European president of South Africa.

He was born 18 July 1918 in South Africa. Mandela was an anti-apartheid activist, and the leader of the armed wing of the African National Congress (ANC). In 1962 he was arrested and convicted of sabotage and other charges, and sentenced to life in prison. Mandela served 27 years in prison, spending many of these years on Robben Island and Victor Verster prison. He was released on February, 11th in 1990.

During his imprisonment he became an international beacon for the rights of the underprivileged, disenfranchised and anti-apartheid movements.

On his release from prison he was elected (as head of the ANC), the first black president of South Africa (1994 - 1999). His tolerance, grace and judgement to the handling of the the dismantlement of the Apartheid government and transition to a democratic multicultural country gained him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993.
