Four years later on May 10,Mandela was elected as South Africa 's first black president and during his time in office he was committed to reforming race-relations in the country and strengthening its economy and place in the world. The Mali Empire eventually disintegrated in the 16th century, but at its peak it was one of the jewels of the African continent and was known the world over for its wealth and luxury. It was probably from these communities that the Bantu speakers spread into the more arid western half of the subcontinent, northwestern Zambia, southwestern Zimbabwe, along the eastern margins of the Kalahari into Botswana, and later into eastern South Africa and Mozambique. The intricate 9th-century bronzes from Igbo-Ukwuin Nigeria displayed a level of technical accomplishment that was notably more advanced than European bronze casting of the same period.

The new culture at Khami developed both the stone building techniques and the pottery styles found at Great Zimbabwe and seeded a number of smaller sites over a wide region of the southern and western plateau. Apparently established in the 9th century, it is distinguished for its seawalls of coral blocks, each of which weighs up to a ton. People of European ancestry began migrating to the region in the midth century; they now constitute a sizable minority in South Africa and a much smaller population in Zimbabwe. During historic times hunter-gatherers were organized in loosely knit bands, of which the family was the basic unit, although wider alliances with neighbouring bands were essential for survival.

Ife was noted as a major religious and cultural centre in West Africa, and for its unique naturalistic tradition of bronze sculpture. The largest numbers of Nilo-Saharan speakers belong to the LuoLangoKalenjinMaasaiand Karimojong peoples, while the principal Bantu-speaking ethnic groups are the KikuyuChagaand Kamba. Even in the apparently inhospitable and isolated Kalahari it is now clear that there was intense interaction and exchange between hunter-gatherers and food producers, leading to the development of hybrid amalgams of pastoralism, agriculture, and foraging. The fortress city at the Great Zimbabwe was mysteriously abandoned sometime in the 15th century after the kingdom went into decline, but in its heyday it was home to an estimated 20, people. Aromatic gums, tortoiseshell, ivory, and slaves were traded in return.
