'' . . . the truth about Mandela has been obscured by decades of myth-mongering, most of it penned by white liberals intent on portraying him as a benign black moderate, leading an army of hymn-singing Martin Luther King types towards the promised land.'' The real Nelson Mandela. 
Once upon a time, both South Africa and the former Rhodesia grew so much food that they became termed, ‘The bread baskets of Africa.’ Shortages and starvation were unknown and both were such rich countries that they exported a surplus of food. Moreover, there were no ‘Feed the world’ initiatives before western liberalism came to Africa. 
The problem for a post-war liberal generation is that South Africa had apartheid (segregation), arguing the belief of multiculturalism  to solve all problems long it became fashionable in the west by Nelson Mandela, a communist and former convicted terrorist, representing the Marxist ANC. Mandela’s role was leader of UmKhonto we Sizwe (MK), founded in 1961 and the terrorist wing of the ANC. On his arrest in 1962, he was also a leading central committee member of the South African Communist Party (SACP). At his trial in 1964, Mandela pleaded guilty to 156 charges of instigating terrorist bombing campaigns, which resulted in deaths, and received a life sentence – even Amnesty International at the time refused to help him. Throughout his decades in prison, Mandela refused to renounce violence.
Nevertheless, released from prison in 1990 and his past conveniently forgotten, in 1993, Mandela won the Nobel Peace Prize. One year later and now president, South Africa took on the role of a ‘The Rainbow Nation’, due to its assumed diversity. Mandela died in 2003 aged 95 and the fawning tributes which followed were not un-similar to those of Obama years later and his assumed elevation to Messiah status. Forty years after Mandela’s terrorism ended and in an apparent fit of forgetfulness, Obama almost wept as he described Mandela as a, ''struggle for your freedom, your democracy'', comparing him to George Washington!
''And he’s a personal hero, but I don’t think I’m unique in that regard. I think he’s a hero for the world.'' Former US President Obama
"Let us pay tribute to Nelson Mandela: The ultimate symbol of dignity and unwavering dedication to the revolutionary struggle, to freedom and justice, a prophet of unity, peace and reconciliation.'' Cuban President Raul Castro
"Mr. Mandela was more than one of the greatest pillars of our time . . . He was one of our greatest teachers." United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
Following the rainbow nation myths, hero worship and revisionism, came the reality.
The Consequences of Mandela in South Africa
''We Communist Party members are the most advanced revolutionaries in modern history . . . the enemy must be wiped out from the face of the Earth before a Communist world can be realized.'' - Nelson Mandela. 1962, in The Wanderer, July 1, 1990, p.6
In 2003, his then wife Madikizela (Winnie) Mandela, head of the ANC Women’s League, sentenced to five years for a string of 43 thefts and 25 fraud charges. Previously, in 1991, to five years (reduced on appeal), for the assault and kidnapping of Stompie Seipei, a 14-year-old activist found near her Soweto home with his throat cut. Members of Winnie Mandela’s bodyguard (AKA The Mandela football club), would later testify to South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commission that she had ordered torture, murder, and kidnapping on several occasions and even participated directly.
Leftist silence and the reality of the genocidal racial hatred of the SA Marxist government they once supported. 
''In July 2012, Dr. Gregory Stanton, head of the non-profit group Genocide Watch, conducted a fact-finding mission in South Africa. He concluded that there is a coordinated campaign of genocide being conducted against white farmers, known as Boers. Estimating the number of murders is necessary because the ANC has banned crime statistics from being compiled, claiming they scare off foreign investment.''
The genocidal situation has become so bad that Genocide Watch has classified South Africa as a Stage 6 country
South Africa is the 6th most dangerous country and the rape capital of the world. The unemployment rate is estimated at 50%
South Africa receives annual foreign of $1,067m (2014).
President Regan initially considered the ANC one of the worlds, ''most notorious terrorist groups''. Both Mandela and the ANC were considered so dangerous that they were on the American terrorist watch list for two decades and only removed from it in 2008 by President Bush, as Mandela turned 90 and became incapable of further terrorist activities.
Next door neighbour Rhodesia had also abolished apartheid and elected Robert Mugabe, another Marxist of the ZANU –PF and its leader since 1987, but just as in neighbouring South Africa, the decline began almost immediately. Rhodesia changed its name to Zimbabwe to abolish the connotation of Cecil Rhodes, the white Dutch founder of Rhodesia. In childlike fashion, liberals throughout the world jumped up and down, united in glee.
Stevie Wonder wrote a catchy song, 'Master Blaster'  about the change to further the gullibility, which include all the fantasy of liberal thought.
''Everyone’s feeling pretty We’ve agreed to come together, joined as children in Jah Tonight there will be a party Is to let all our worries, like the breeze through our fingers slip away.''
And again came the reality.
''The only white man you can trust is a dead white man . . . Our party must continue to strike fear in the heart of the white man, our real enemy.'' - Robert Mugabe
As many whites fled, they took the skills needed with them and both South Africa and Zimbabwe plunged into chaos. Zimbabwe - From bread basket to basket case. 
Zimbabwe whites finished - Nation ''Like One Big Departure Lounge''.  In 2008 (50m Zimbabwean dollars = 1$US), inflation stood at 3,500,000, with an unemployment rate of 80%.
''Suburban street signs have been removed wholesale - we think they are being melted down and made into coffin handles. Graves have been opened, corpses dumped in the bush and coffins taken for resale, spruced up with aluminium from the signs.''
Zimbabwe receives foreign aid of $1,001m (2014). Currently, an estimated 7.5 million people face starvation.
