South Africa gets first Black President

South Africa witnessed history when the country got its first non-white President  in the guise of Nelson Mandela who had swept the 1994 elections.

His win came as a surprise to many since South African society at that point of time was deeply rooted in racial discrimination.

Being an anti-Apartheid Revolutionary and Political leader, Mandela won 62% of the votes during the election representing  the African National Congress.
