Best Answer

The 'extraordinary human disaster' that Mandela mentioned at the beginning of his

speech refers to the inhuman practice of apartheid i.e., the racial discrimination suffered

by the blacks at the hands of whites in South Africa. At the end, the 'glorious human

achievement' that he spoke of refers to the establishment of South Africa's first

democratic, non-racial government•
