Nelson Mandela went to England to look for financial and political support for the ANC's war against the South African government and protest against the system of 'Apartheid' or Seperatism .
He was later (1965) imprisoned for bombing a few places in Johannesburg, but was released after 27 years in captivity in 1992.
In 1994 he was elected as the first native president of South Africa, and served a 4 year term. His successor was Thabo Mbeki, who served almost 2 full terms.Source(s): I'm South African.
