|Caption:||On the 2 March 1990 Nelson Mandela (centre) is elected Deputy President of the African National Congress (ANC) at a two-day meeting of the ANC National Executive Committee (NEC) in Lusaka, Zambia. Lusaka has been the seat of the exiled ANC NEC so it is fitting that Zambia is the first stop on a tour of a number of African states that Nelson Mandela is making, having been released from prison in South Africa less than one month ago. Nelson Mandela is being accompanied on this tour by his wife Winnie Mandela (left of Nelson Mandela) and ANC NEC President Walter Sisulu (fourth left). Nelson Mandela is reuniting with many other ANC stalwarts during this visit to Zambia including the General Secretary of the South African Communist Party and a senior official of the ANC, Joe Slovo (fourth right), and the Secretary-General of the ANC, Alfred Nzo (left of Winnie Mandela).|
