PETER FROST salutes Mandela and his comrades who were sentenced by the racist apartheid state 50 years ago June 12 1964, half a century ago today, was one of the darkest days in the history of the liberation struggle in South Africa. It seemed like the forces of racism and reaction were about to achieve their final victory. Ten members of the leadership of the African National Congress (ANC) and the South African Communist Party had finished an eight-month trial and had been handed down long jail sentences. They were Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Denis Goldberg, Govan Mbeki, Ahmed Kathrada, Raymond Mhlaba, Elias Motsoaledi and Andrew Mlangeni. Two of the accused, Lionel “Rusty” Bernstein and James Kantor, were acquitted. Those in the dock covered the entire spectrum of what would become the South African “rainbow nation.” Goldberg and Bernstein were white Jews, Kathrada was Indian and Mhlaba, Mbeki and Motsoaledi were black from the Xhosa tribe. Sisulu’s mother was Xhosa and his father was Euro ...
"He came to prison with a Std 2. But he got all the education informally from fellow prisoners" ~ Ahmed Kathrada on President Jacob Zuma
The years 1961 to 1964 were years of great circumstances for the politics of South Africa. The Rivonia trial was one of the most fundamental trials in the history of South Africa, especially the history of political trials and the African National Congress in general. The reason for this, not only was the late Tata Mandela one of the accused and detainees, but so were ten other leaders of the ANC, leaders like Ahmed Kathrada, Goven Mbeki, Dennis Goldberg and Elias Motsoaledi. The significance of this trial comes with great ramifications. Firstly nineteen ANC leaders including the accused were arrested in 1961 at lilies leaf farm. These leaders were the think tanks of the ANC and therefore these arrests were a great blow to the ANC and the ruling apartheid Nationalist Party had the upper hand, and were one step closer as they thought to collapsing the ANC and maintaining the apartheid regime. These leaders were not Africans only, but consisted of all races and all religions, showing that the ANC was diver ...
Did you know? On this day, 11 June 1964 Nelson Mandela & seven others were convicted of sabotage in the Rivonia Trial. Madiba's co-accused were: Walter Sisulu, Ahmed Kathrada, Raymond Mhlaba, Govan Mbeki, Elias Motsoaledi, Denis Goldberg Andrew Mlangeni... What are your thought?
Today, the 11th June marks 50 years since Justice Quartus de Wet delivered his verdict on the remaining 9 accused. And 50 years ago tomorrow he delivered his verdict. Andrew Mlangeni recalls that the defence team,while the prospect of a death sentence hung over the accused, held on to the slim hope that maybe Ahmed Kathrada and Raymond Mhlaba would be acquitted due to insufficient evidence against them, that he and Elias Motsoaledi would receive 12 years each and Denis Goldberg, Govan Mbeki and Rusty Bernstein life imprisonment. The defence team however he remembers thought that Nelson Mandela & Walter Sisulu would both receive the death sentence.
