Mandela and the ANC

Hugh Muir writes about Nelson Mandela: a beacon for black Britainhttp://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/dec/06/nelson-mandela-black-britain

In this article he asks the question:  "So Black Britain... revered his life. What can it learn after his death?"

In South Africa an intransigent elite allowed unrestricted immigration against the wishes of the majority.

Mr Mandela and the ANC demonstrated that the only way to stop this unrestricted immigration (which was accumulating all the resources of the country to the detriment of the indigenous majority) was through violence.

Surely there cannot be anything to learn from this Mr Muir?

Perhaps when all the gush and mush has subsided we can see Mr Mandela for what he was.
