This is Mandela's first television interview.
I asked him what it was that the Africans really wanted.
The Africans require want to franchise on the basis of one man, one vote. They want political independence.
Do you see Africans being able to develop in this country without the Europeans being pushed out?
We have made it very clear in our policy that South Africa is a country of many races. There is room for all the various races in this country.
Are there many educated Africans in South Africa?
Yes, we have a large number of Africans who are educated and who are taking part in the political struggles of the Africans. The question of education has nothing to do with the question on the vote. On numerous occasions, it has been told in history that people can enjoy the vote even if they have no education or proper desired education. Everything is a good thing, but you don't have to have education in order to know. But you want certain fundamental rights so you have got aspirations, you have got claims. It has nothing to do with education whatsoever.
