Nelson Mandela was the co-recipient of the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize he shared the award with Frederik Willem de Klerk. Mandela had a very interesting upbringing and young life, he was born one of 13 children. His father had four wives, and Mandela was born to the third wife. He was the leader of an anti-government organization and orchestrated many bombings and sabotaging escapades for which he was imprisoned. After his release, Mandela launched himself into politics once again, only this time it resulted in his election as president, instead of imprisonment. Mandela is now 94 years old and resides in Johannesburg. South Africa is now fairly stable but has an injured economy.
