The 5th death anniversary of anti-apartheid revolutionary, political leader Nelson Mandela is being observed today (05-12-2018).

Mandela, along with other leaders opposing apartheid, was sentenced to life on charges of sabotage in 1964 and he spent 27 years in jail and was released in 1990.

He won the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize for “peaceful termination of the apartheid regime and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa”.
