To what extent do reconciliation policies in post colonial African nations differ from policies of systematic revenge? Written by Shontierra Anderson In an interview, Nelson Mandela said: "With the exception of the atrocities against the Jews during the Second World War, there is no evil that has been as condemned by the entire world as Apartheid." - Source: Sunday Independent, December 6, 1998. Based on this quote by Nelson Mandela, there is nothing worse than Apartheid besides the crimes committed to the Jews during the Second World War. By the 1990s, apartheid had began to be repealed but, not until after a long hard fought battle between the African and Indian people of South Africa and their government. Protests of the government among the people began in the masses by the 1980s. The government retaliated with brutality. The role that Nelson Mandela played heavily began in 1990 when F.W. de Klerk had him relieved of charges he was accused of in the Rivonia case.
