So you think that Nelson Mandela was doing it because he was bored. YOU SICK RACIST BASTARD! Nelson Mandela was an incredibly important person who deserves nothing but respect from everybody so how DARE YOU even think about criticizing him you sick people.
When apartheid ended he was actually in prison, but was freed as a result. He started the African National Congress which was the active party that ended apartheid. The opposite party were the Zulus, which were getting money from the government to oppose the ANC. There were lots of fights and killings on both sides. The people were so upset and the rest of the world was now watching them to see what a horrible government they had. The embargoes and boycott of goods from South Africa were so bad that the government had to lift their racist rules, and free Nelson Mandela. He is one of my heroes.
Nothing he was weird.
He was bored and had nothing better to do.
