South African President Jacob Zuma has announced that Nelson Mandela, famed fighter of apartheid has died at the age of 95.

The Townsquare News Network reports:

Current South African President Jacob Zuma issued a statement saying, “The founding president of our democratic nation has departed. He is now resting, he is now at peace.”

Mandela rose to prominence for fighting against the practice of apartheid, first as a member of the African National Congress in the 1950s. In 1962 he began a prolonged stay in jail. During that time, international eyes began to focus on South African apartheid, and particularly Mandela’s role in resisting it.
