Nelson Mandela and Teófilo Stevenson Print E-mail


In November of 1994, I had the privilege of presenting my letters of accreditation as the first ambassador of Cuba, to Nelson Mandela, President of a South Africa recently liberated from the terrible system of racial segregation known as apartheid. I was accompanied by my wife Silvia; Marcos Rodríguez, previously Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, and his wife Rosa María.

In that brief diplomatic meeting, Mandela asked three questions: How is Cuba? How is my brother Fidel? How is Teófilo Stevenson?

As a youth Mandela was a heavyweight boxer and, during his close to 30-year imprisonment on Robben Island and in other jails, followed the Cuban’s brilliant boxing career. Stevenson became his idol as the best amateur heavyweight boxer in the world.
