Mandela Freed

On Sunday February 11, 1990 after 27 years in jail, Mr Nelson Mandela walked out of prison a free man. He walked to freedom through the gates of Victor Verster jail near Cape Town, hand in hand with his then wife, Winnie, to meet a waiting crowd of supporters and the ranks of the world’s media. He greeted the crowd with a clenched fist salute, then walked back to his car before leaving at the head of a long cavalcade for Cape Town along a route lined with emotional well-wishers.
