Panel Discussion: Mandela: Saviour or Sellout
2018 marks the centenary of the birth of Nelson Mandela. Often affectionately referred to as the ‘father of the nation', the first democratically elected president of South Africa has been hailed around the globe as the greatest man of the 20th century.
But one man's saviour is another man's sell-out, and recent critics of the former activist and president raise this argument. Wits Business School hosted a panel discussion that tackled this contentious issue.
