Mandela and fellow lawyer Oliver Tambo operated a law firm providing free or low-cost legal counsel to many blacks who would otherwise have been without representation.
In 1961, Mandela became the leader of the ANC's armed wing, Umkhonto we Sizwe (translated as Spear of the Nation, also abbreviated as MK), which he co-founded. He coordinated a sabotage campaign against military and government targets, and made plans for a possible guerrilla war if sabotage failed to end apartheid. Mandela also raised funds for MK abroad, and arranged for paramilitary training, visiting various African governments.
Following his release from prison, Mandela returned to the leadership of the ANC and, between 1990 and 1994, led the party in the multi-party negotiations that led to the country's first multi-racial elections.
Premiums: What you pay for the insurance.
Legal fees: Insurance companies will pay your legal fees if you are sued over an accident. Some policies may offer extra cover for other legal fees, such as defending a traffic citation by the police.
Voluntary Excess: Amount of damages you pay out-of-pocket. For example, if you have £500 Voluntary Excess and are involved in an accident, you pay the first £500 and the insurance company picks up the tab at that point. The higher your VE, the lower your premiums.
