SALT ROCK, South Africa - Nelson Mandela, who has devoted much of his life since leaving South Africa's presidency to a campaign against AIDS, said yesterday that his 54-year son, Makgatho, had died of the disease in a Johannesburg clinic. Makgatho L. Mandela had been seriously ill for more than a month, but the nature of his ailment was not made public before his death yesterday. At a news conference a few hours later in Johannesburg, the elder Mandela, 86, said he was revealing the cause of his son's death to focus more public attention on AIDS, still a taboo topic among many South Africans.
