    Nelson Mandela was jailed for treason by South Africa┬┤s racist regime and he was in jail for 27 years.He remains a reference leader worldwide for his reconciliatory attitude and in the unity of South Africa across racial lines.He is also admired for not being power hungry.He left governance after serving just one term when he could have stayed for the second term without any constitutional or legal deviance.
