Anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela has died.
The Nobel Peace Prize laureate is arguably the world's most revered statesmen after successfully leading South Africa from apartheid rule when he was elected as South Africa's first black president in 1994. Not only that, he did in a way that garnered respect from his opponents for the relatively peaceful way change came about. Even FW de Klerk, South Africa's last white president, praised Mr. Mandela's for being a unifier and having "remarkable lack of bitterness" towards the people who jailed him for 27 years.
Mr. Mandela was 95 and he will be missed.
