Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress committed crimes worthy to be labelled terrorism. Despite this they were not a "terrorist group" but simply oppressed people fighting for an equal society. The ANC and its members were officially removed from the United States terrorism watch list in 2008.

The ANC is currently in governmental power in South Africa, recieving about 60% of national votes.
