                      Nelson Mandela is his name

                   Bringing Democracy to South Africa Was His Aim

          He was Born on July 18  1918 in Mvezo a tiny village in district of Umtata

          The Capital of the Transki But that didn`t Matter

          This Child was bound for Destiny Wrong doing and Pain

          He was Jailed for 27 years on Robben Island for fighting for Equality

           But the Apathied Government was not having a bar of Democrocy

           How was he to bring together The Black Majority
           He Fought and Won against this sinful Authority

           Elected as the first Democraticly elected President of this country of his

           Bringing the Black and White Peuple together was quite a Quiz

           He used Sport the game of Rugby and the Rugby Final of the World cup

            To Meld this Great Nation together although it was only a pup

             He had a vision for South Africa where people would enjoy Equal Rights

             He not only Unified his own Black Aficans but also the Aparthied Whites
             He was elected in 1994 and served his People of all races for five years

              When he resigned in 1999 there wre congratulations Accolades and Tears

               He was a Statesman highly revered but the Battles had taken their toll

                He died at Ninety One but was the Captain of his Soul.
