Jailed African National Congress leader Nelson Mandela has obtained his LIB degree.

The University of South Africa confirmed yesterday that Mandela has passed his final exams this year. Mandela practiced as alawyer in Johannesburg in the 1950s. His partner was Oliver Tambo. According to the family lawyer, Ismail Ayob, Mandela graduated from Wits University with a BA degree.
