RIP Nelson Mandela
South Africa, a country who will be in mourning for many months to come. RIP Nelson Mandela who died today aged 95 years. The former first black President of South Africa finally lost his battle against lung infection, a recurring illness. He guided the country from apartheid to democracy after tackling institutionalised racism, poverty and inequality. He served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999.
