#1  Democracy Gauge: Michael December

We take you back to the 27th of April 1994, when millions of South Africans voted for the first time since the fall of apartheid. But one man, Michael December, was still incarcerated when Nelson Mandela was democratically elected as South Africa's first black president. He only received a political pardon in 2015. Michael recalls how those who were jailed celebrated when they were told that they could vote for the first time.
