    We’re going to hark back to the long struggle against white minority rule in South Africa.  A young man called Saths Cooper organised student protests against the regime in the mid-1970s, working with black activist Steve Biko. In 1976 Saths Cooper was imprisoned on Robben Island. There he got to know Nelson Mandela and Walter. Also on Robben Island he began to study psychology, a discipline in which he is now a leading international figure. Now Professor Saths Cooper, he is in Dublin today to receive an award from the Psychological Society of Ireland.

    Nelson Mandela

    The remains of Nelson Mandela have arrived at the main government building in South Africa's capital, Pretoria, where he will lie in state for the next three days.    Yesterday world leaders gathered to pay their respects to Nelson Mandela at a memorial service at Johannesburg’s Soccer Stadium where US President Barack Obama received a roaring ovation. While in stark contrast, South African President Jacob Zuma was publicly humiliated  by a hostile crowd as he addressed the high profile ceremony. Obama also pointedly shook hands with Cuban leader Raul Castro and he was spotted posing for a “selfie” and joking with Danish prime minister ...
