If he had died during his incarceration either at the redoubtable Robben Island or the dreadful Pollsmoor Prison in Tokai, Cape Town, Dr Nelson Mandela would most likely have gone down in history as a loathed and dreaded terrorist because many Western countries regarded the armed struggle through which members of the African National Congress (ANC) expressed their frustration about the apartheid regime in South Africa as antithetical to their interests. They decried the indiscriminate attacks of the group on people and government establishments and their reaction to his death would have been ‘good riddance to bad rubbish.
