On this day, 29-years -ago, Nelson Mandela walked out of the then Victor Verster Prison on the outskirts of Paarl in Cape Town. He had spent 27-years behind bars. Mandela was accompanied out of prison by his then wife and late struggle icon Winnie Madikizela-Mandela. The Nelson Mandela Foundation says while South Africans should still celebrate the country's break from colonial and apartheid past, a quarter of a century of democracy has not delivered on the promise of the 1990s. The Foundation's Sello Hatang has highlighted the looting which has characterised public institutions as one of the main problems. Hatang says government has the responsibility to deal with poverty and inequality.
