SoAfrica-Pres 1918-2013 Long Walk to Freedom Nelson Mandela led a non-violent revolution to overturn apartheid in South Africa. Although apartheid had generated one of the most violent and contentious struggles in history, Mandela was able when the right time arrived, and through the force of personal character (honed during a bitterly long prison sentence-12) to lead a remarkably swift and successful campaign against the tyranny of racial inequality, prejudice, and hatred

Dwadas-arudha = arudha lagna of bhava-12 * located in bhava-10 reputation * one is well-known for matters of bhava-12, including distant lands, hospitals, monastic enclosures, and prison .

The arudha of Mandela's Long imprisonment and social isolation = in the public perception, the extraordinary length of time of imprisonment produced a worldwide political reputation (Surya ruler-of-12 )

Mandela is most well known for his extremely long prison sentences and his "behind closed doors" deal-making which resulted in critically important international alliances

Considering his extremely long imprisonment and dynamic resistance activism which consumed the great majority of his personal efforts, Mandela left a remarkable estate valued at more than $4million. Most of his income (11) came from honoraria for delivering speeches (2).
