A CIA’s tip to apartheid-era South Africa led to the arrest of Nelson Mandela, according to a deathbed interview with the agent.

The interview with former CIA agent Donald Rickard will be aired as part of British film director John Irvin’s new film, “Mandela’s Gun,” reports Newsweek. 

“He could have incited a war in South Africa, the United States would have to get involved, grudgingly, and things could have gone to hell,” Rickard said, accordingly to The Sunday Times.

“We were teetering on the brink here and it had to be stopped, which meant Mandela had to be stopped. And I put a stop to it.”

Mandela ended up incarcerated for 27 years before the was released in 1990.
