Forget all the hollywood films about Winnie and Nelson Mandela (propaganda) that do not in anyway reveal the true story of white supremacist rule in South Africa and the heroes and sheroes that helped to fight for justice and freedom. For the first time ever see the critically acclaimed 1986 documentary on the lives of Winnie and Nelson Mandela without the frills, mis-education, white washing and mis-information that is always found in hollywood blockbuster movies.

What is the real meaning of Ubuntu? Wikipedia describes Ubuntu as "human kindness." It is an idea from the Southern African region which means literally "human-ness," and is often translated as "humanity toward others," but is often used in a more philosophical sense to mean "the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity". In this video Nelson Mandela shares his understanding of it.

Western “colonial” states are not interested in S. Africa’s development, but rather want to take its natural resources and never give anything back, Jacob Zuma, S. African president, told RT. It’s China’s investment that Zuma sees as a way to prosperity. They still regard us as the Third World, as a kind of people, who must be related to as the former subject [state], etc. That talks also to the economics… Their intention has never been to make the former colonial countries develop,” the president explained. Zuma believes things “would never be the same” with China, which has been heavily investing in Africa since the early 2000s, as it came to the continent “as equals.” “The Chinese come differently. They come to do business with us. They are ready to help… The results would be that African countries will be empowered,” he said.

But even after the continent decolonized itself in the mid-20th century, its relationship with the US, UK, France and other Western countries “remained the same,” he stressed.
