I read where one poster here referred to Nelson Mandela as a sell out and another claims he dumped his wife as soon as he was released from prison. One is an opinion the other is a lie and gross distortion of fact. In his divorce proceedings he accused his wife of adultery and I believe this was six years after his release from prison.

Was Nelson Mandela a sell out? That remains a matter of opinion. To most South Africans he will best be remembered as a man of integrity and the Father of the Nation.

Maybe in the end he was overmatched. I don't know how many "sell-outs" spent 27 years in jail.


Not exactly overmatched. He did what he thought best and served one term as President. Mandela used his leverage to set up numerous cultural and educational foundations. He did more than his part for African liberation.

IDK. How could he not be overmatched in an apartheid laced environment? How much could he accomplish? Like you said he did what he could, I believe that.


Despite how all this ends up IMO Nelson Mandela's contributions both directly and indirectly, should never be overlooked or undermined.

Thanks for the post.
