1 Minute Speech on Nelson Mandela In English

A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of Nelson Mandela.

It is impossible to have not heard of Nelson Mandela, former president of South Africa. Referred to as the ‘Gandhi of South Africa’, Mandela was known for being an acclaimed social activist for anti-apartheid and a known politician in South Africa, raising his voice against the oppressed. 

Serving as president between the years 1994-1999, he was beloved by the people. Mandela, in fact, according to Wikipedia, was “the country’s first black head of state and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election.”

Considered to be the father of Modern South Africa, Mandela received the Nobel Peace Prize in the year 1993. 

“Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again,” said Nelson Mandela. Let us be as perseverent and resilient as this great man and succeed in life.

Thank you.
