Gangs, along with the anarchy and disorder they cause, are throwing South Africa into an unending cycle of violence and retaliation, causing them to linger in the end of apartheid. There are many theories as to how this outbreak of gang violence began. Many think they formed during Africa’s last apartheid, where all the mixed races were concentrated into small cities (Warfare). Here, many of the youth thought of themselves as “defenders of their communities,” “armies of liberation,” and ‘frontline soldiers,” against the tyranny of the government (culture). Others turned to crime as a way to supply for their families, because the government was not providing them with the necessary benefits they deserved.

Fearful of the growing sense of instability of democracy, and perhaps rash given the size of unmet needs of a majority of South Africans who continue to live in squalor, government activated the intelligence agencies to track such third force. Then president of the country, Thabo Mbeki commented that while these demonstrations did not pose an immediate danger, there was a possibility that ‘if they took root, gaining popular support, [they] would pose a threat to the stability of democratic South Africa (my emphasis) (SALRC, 2005: 37). The anxiety by government expressed here by the president highlights an acknowledgement, at least in part, of the role that protests played in undermining the apartheid state and the vulnerability of the young democracy, just 11 years after the end of apartheid rule.

[Nelson quotes] Armed with the strength that he found in reading William Henley’s “Invictus,” Mandela’s steps towards unity amongst all were phenomenal. [Henley] There were leaders and philosophers fighting to abolish the idea of white rule in South Africa, but few had their voice heard and accepted. Although, initially committed to non-violent protest, he couldn’t prove to people of the government’s cruel ruling. The next step, Mandela and some others in the ANC (African National Congress) tried other seditious actions including the demolishment of government buildings and homes of government officials. From the government and many people’s views this was terrorism.
This make the government thought that Nelson was a threat and an immense danger to the society, therefore they though his sentence was fair. Mandelas speeches and contributions as a politician suddenly became known nationwide because Mandela was risking his life and prisoning himself for the purpose to make others rebell and act against injustices. Since around the world people knew of the existence of segregation in south Africa-which was one of the few countries to still support this type of system- the nation oppose trade and international sanctions with South africa. This also cost the country the banned osf assisting the olympic games on 1964 [ from the website “ the legacy of Mandela”]. IN the 80’s, Nelson became a recognizable and admirable character who became an inspirator to several political groups and communities across the world.

Also, big universities like Stanford and Berkeley have declined to look people on the web due to the large amount of interviewees trying to get into the school making it unfair and think it borderlines privacy; therefore, people would either go to a less strict college or move far away. Even though these social media websites are becoming more popular and are what most people use, kids younger than 13 should not be able to use them. These children just are not ready for a new level of drama, stress, and lack of enthusiasm.
