In 1982, after having been incarcerated on Robben Island for 18 years, Nelson Mandela was transferred to a prison on the Cape mainland. He was finally freed in 199o.
"Free at last" -- Mandela's 1994 speech:
All is not well in the new South Africa: crime is rising, the affluent (black and white) live behind electrified gates, whites feel excluded from jobs. And today, just as in the days of Apartheid, young South Africans are migrating abroad. There used to be a diaspora of South Africans wherever English was spoken – the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand. Today, there is once again such a diaspora.
