A photographic exhibition, On the Frontline, at the Nelson Mandela Foundation's Centre of Memory reflects on the contribution – and the price they paid – from countries in Africa to helping the liberation struggle overcome apartheid.
The victory over apartheid was a collective effort. Help from other African countries was decisive in the struggle. From bases in Angola to military help in Zambia, they all played a role.
Students and teachers are drawn from across southern Africa and beyond to the unusual school in rural North West Province. Counting among its alumni the Botswana elite and more than one president, Tiger Kloof's history reflects the history of South Africa – and its new dawn.
Botswana is a resources rich, economically and politically stable country with a strong economy and an enviable credit rating. It is capitalising on all of this to build its brand and grow the nation as an economic powerhouse. Synergies with its neighbours are part of the plan.
