THE year was 1995, and it was the Rugby World Cup Final, the sport’s biggest game. But it was something more. It was a defining moment in the history of a fractured nation. Minutes before the game began, Nelson Mandela came on to the field, wearing Springboks, the South African rugby team’s jersey. Within seconds, the chants went up from the fans packed into Ellis Park Stadium in the heart of Johannesburg: “Nelson! Nelson! Nelson!” 65,000 white rugby supporters were joyously shouting his name.

According to him, ‘Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still.
