MHz pre-empts regular programming on Sunday, December 8, on MHz Networks 1 in the Washington, D.C. area and nationally on MHz Worldview for a special In Focus presentation from Deutsche Welle TV: In Focus: Nelson Mandela - The Voice of Freedom. The timely special airs 11 AM-noon ET.
Most South Africans will remember Nelson Mandela with a smile. They fondly call him by his clan name "Madiba".
More than any other figure, he shaped the history of the new South Africa.
In 1994, after spending almost three decades in prison, he became the first elected black president. Deutsche Welle looks back at one of the world's most cherished leaders and bids Nelson Mandela farewell in a special 43-minute edition of our "In Focus" documentary series. Distributed by Deutsche Welle TV, broadcast in English.
