Question tho':  why didn't he simply hand SA over to the communists, lock, stock, and barrel, once he became president?  At the least he could have packed the entire gov't full of hard-core party members so that even if it technically remained a democratic form, it would in substance be a communist system.

Part of the answer is in the AIM report:

The whites had to be tolerated because of their economic expertise.

Other reasons might be that a coalition government would buy time to implement planned collectivist's policies and ensure international support. As noted in this article
Quote
South Africa has been among the top ten recipients of U.S. foreign aid, getting close to $500 million in fiscal year 2013.
.

It is not unusual for the Communists to plan long term while adopting a short term approach which helps them to achieve their ultimate goals. Think of Lenin's NEP in the 20s, how the Communists always advocate "coalition' governments in which they can then seize power, or even Mao's "Let a thousand flowers blossom" campaign.

A certain degree of peace was brought about by Mandela but the future of SA does not look very promising. With him now gone and openly radical leaders in place it remains to be seen how the situation will develop and how the world will react, especially the US, should things turn ugly.

The communists still don't own SA.  If they end up doing so, it won't be because of Mandela's deftness and sub rosa membership in the communist party but because of the general ineptness and corruption of African governments generally.
