I find it extremely bizarre that this comes out decades after the fact and a week after Madiba's funeral, and cannot be verified from other sources. Also, Mandela and the ANC were forthcoming about the African and non-African states which were supporting their struggle in one way or another, and sorry to say that Israel was on the wrong side of history. The Nelson Mandela foundation states in a release on their website: Media have picked up on a story alleging that in 1962 Nelson Mandela interacted with an Israeli operative in Ethiopia. The Nelson Mandela Foundation can confirm that it has not located any evidence in Nelson Mandela's private archive (which includes his 1962 diary and notebook) that he interacted with an Israeli operative during his tour of African countries in that year. Both the diary and the notebook were used as evidence against him in the 1963-1964 Rivonia Trial for sabotage. In 1962 Mr Mandela received military training from Algerian freedom fighters in Morocco and from the Ethiopian Riot Battalion at Kolfe outside Addis Ababa, before returning to South Africa in July 1962. In 2009 the Nelson Mandela Foundation’s senior researcher travelled to Ethiopia and interviewed the surviving men who assisted in Mandela’s training – no evidence emerged of an Israeli connection.
