Example text

A month before he was arrested, his wife, Winnie Mandela, celebrated her fourth wedding anniversary in the absence of her husband. About forty close friends were invited; two hundred showed up. And the police were there also, as a toast to the absent host was proposed by one of his friends. The security force did catch up with him in 1962. By that time, he was the most wanted man in the country, and he had played hide and seek with the police until that day, when, dressed as a chauffeur, on the road to Pietermaritzburg, he was finally caught in their net.

In December of 1956, Mandela was among 156 political leaders seized by the police and charged with high treason. Four and one-half years later, on March 26, 1961, the accused were found not guilty. When the African National Congress and the Pan Africanist Congress were banned after the Sharpeville Massacre on March 21, 1960, Mandela was arrested and accused of incitement. He went underground, and he and Walter Sisulu travelled about the country, organizing such protests as a threeday stay-at-home strike in May, 1961.
