Anti-apartheid hero and former President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died at the age of 95. Mandela was admitted in the hospital in late June due to his lung condition but later returned home on September 1st.

This was his fourth visit to the hospital since December of last year. Mandela, who spent 27 years in prison after being convicted of being involved in sabotage and conspiracy to overthrow his country’s government, became South Africa’s first democratically elected president, holding office from 1994 to 1999.

As the first President of the country, he was the symbol of racial unification, not only in the region, but in the world. He leaves behind an everlasting legacy in the form of his ground breaking work as founder of the Spear of Nations, African National angers (ANC), spokesperson for HIV/AIDS and the President.

He will be missed.
