~ I've already told the sender, OF COURSE, ~ "We'll find SPENCE for you". Don't let me down ;) ~CAT I am hoping that maybe someone can help me find a “homeless person called : Spence” (Spencer) in the Richmond / Albany Road area as this may just turn into a “good story” for this gentleman. Unfortunately I cannot guess at his age, but he is a rather tallish, thin White man with blonde / brown hair, I cannot remember the colour of his eyes and very well spoken. I work for the company hereunder, and was approached by Spence as I left Gatti’s about two months ago – he saw the logo on the company vehicle and asked if a certain person is still involved in this business as he worked for him about 7 or 8 years some years ago and was just wondering when he saw the logo. As it happens the person he asked about is still very much involved (in fact the MD of the business). Spence then asked me to pass on his regards, and said if there is anything going (workwise) in the company, that he is at a “loose . ...

Thabo Mvuyelwa Mbeki is an Afrikan politician, activist and former President of South Afrika. Thabo Mvuyelwa Mbeki was born on June 18, 1942 in Mbewuleni, Cape Province, Union of South Africa. He is one of four children of Epainette and Govan Mbeki. People like to identify Thabo Mbeki as an independent and original thinker, but one who remains close to the more visible leadership. His profile as a policy shaper and mediator in the anti-apartheid movement has been built up over a lifetime of involvement. He was born in Idutywa, Transkei, where both his parents were teachers and activists. His father, Govan, was a leading figure in ANC (African National Congress) activities in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. A young Mbeki joined the ANC Youth League at 14 and quickly became active in student politics. When his schooling at Lovedale Academy was interrupted by a strike in 1959, he completed his studies at home. Then he moved to Johannesburg, coming under the guidance of Walter Sisulu and Duma Nokwe. It was ...
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 ...
Zuma wanted to be there just his health is not allowing.. I remember how well he spoke at Govan Mbeki's funeral
Stalwart, Eppainette MaMbeki Mbeki, did not only stand firm behind the cause her husband, Govan Mbeki lived and was jailed for. She was an equal partner in that cause, and lived her entire adult life as part of the fearless fighters for that cause. We ordinary mortals, fail to understand and appreciate the tragedy such sacrifice wreaked on the family lives of those veterans. How families were torn apart and children grew without parents. We fail to understand the madness that reign in the minds of those who are committed and die with their boots on. We will never know that pain until we understand how under conditions of struggle love dies by the hand of the moment of depression, and love is sustained by the resolute commitment to a cause. We will never fathom that reality until we have that rare moment to experience that reality What is remarkable is that most of those women and children? suffered greatly and silently. They chose to carry themselves about with dignity, and engrossed themselves in the dep ...
MaMbeki's legacy lives on at Adams College south of Durban. She graduated as a teacher from the institution 78 years ago and one of her teachers Govan Mbeki became her husband. Just three months ago she visited Adams College and the current principal says MaMbeki left behind a rich legacy. "MaMbeki and the generation of that time laid a very solid foundation in the school. The culture and the tradition that they laid. The culture of selflessness, the culture of discipline and the culture of quality education and excellence which is still prevalent currently. They taught many things. We have copied good practices from the generations of MaMbeki," says Adams College principal Thulani Khumalo. The college later produced luminaries such as John Langalibalele Dube and Albert Luthuli. The school plans to rename one of its buildings after Epainette and her late husband Govan Mbeki. The 98-year-old Mbeki matriarch passed away having been admitted to an East London hospital for observation towards the end of May a ...

I would like to take this opportunity ,to express to the Mbeki Family, that you are not alone in your grieve for the loss of our mother Epainette Moerane Mbeki. South Africa and Lesotho has lost one of its pillar of strength. There are no words to express our feelings. In moment like this, we need to be comforted in knowing that, she is not lost, but she is with the Lord. We were all blessed to have her around us. We enjoyed her counsel . We therefore encourage each other to reflect on the life of Mama Mbeki. The good things she had done for her people . The role that she played in liberating the South Africans from the struggle against apartheid. Mama Mbeki is the Mother of our former President Thabo Mbeki and the mother of Linda,Jama and Moeletsi Mbeki.She is the wife of the struggle veteran Govan Mbeki. She was a freedom fighter, an interpreneur, community developer and she was a very humble person. She preferred to live around her people in the Eastern Cape at a village called Ngcingwane. Ma ...

Yea, I agree baby! There's more time and money spent on a few men chasing a ball, than seeing to the needs of your country! The thousands of rands spent on Govan Mbeki (Main St) with our 2010 soccer? Absolute waste of tax payers monies and did not improve the driving ability of drivers! Still do just the *** what they want to!
The life of Thabo, the one they also call Mvuyelwa, son of Epainette and Govan Mbeki, and that of his brother Moeletsi and sister Linda, is inspiring. Their father relocated the family from Mt.Fletcher to this village in order to set up a general dealer and to prosecute the struggle. But he abandoned the family for Johannesburg. But they overcame the odds and became very valuable citizens
And this is why you voted for the Govan Mbeki Municipality, to stay the same!
EDUCATE TO ELEVATE: 50 years ago: Mandela arrives on Robben Island Second time in that prison 12 June 2014 "Nelson Mandela arrived on Robben Island on 13 June 1964 to start serving his life sentence. But it was not his first time there. Six months into his five-year prison sentence for leaving the country without a passport and inciting a strike, he was transferred from Pretoria Local Prison to the island, on 27 May 1963. He was part of a group of four political prisoners taken there from Pretoria. The others were Stephen Tefu, John Kgaitsiwe and Aaron Molete. Right in the beginning he had verbal altercations with prison warders, one of whom almost assaulted him. “I say, ‘You dare touch me, I will take you to the highest court in this land and by the time I'm finished with you, you will be as poor as a church mouse.’ And he stopped," Mandela recounted the story. "I was frightened; it was not because I was courageous, but one had to put up a front and so he stopped.” He was living his own philosoph ...
SASCO statement on the passing of MaMbeki The South African Students' Congress (SASCO) mourns the sad depature of Mama Epainette Nomaka Mbeki (98). MaMbeki is a struggle hero in her own right, an educator and wife to the great Govan Mbeki. She is also a mother to President Thabo Mbeki. She was a an outstanding leader of the South African people and a community activist till her last days of life. She was a true mother of the nation who continued to make a contribution in the lives of ordinary people. MaMbeki continued to have the courage to express herself openly on various issues confronting our political and social landscape. MaMbeki was amongst the first black members and second woman to join the Communist Party of South Africa. She was a stalwart of the African National Congress who understood that our revolution is about emancipating the poor and working class people. She for years experienced the worst hardship brought about by Apartheid when her husband was arrested, her children exiled and the har ...

Govan Mbeki was one of the sentenced to life imprisonment
Salute to the ff defense team of attorneys who represented our legendary leaders during Rivonia Trial, very little is normally spoken about these heroic cadres who played an indispensable role in our struggle, Joel Joffe, Bram Fischer, Vernon Berrange, Arthur Chaskalson and George Bizos. Through their Intrepidity brainpower they were able to obtain a lifetime imprisonment penalty instead of the death sentence which was convicted to the so-called ANC heavyweights such as Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu,Govan Mbeki, Raymond Mahlaba,Ahmed Kathrada, Lionel Bernstein, James Kantor,Dennis Goldberg, Elias Motsoaledi and Andrew Mlangeni . Happy 50th Anniversary of Rivonia Trial .
"On the 12 June 1964, the day after finding the main accused guilty of all charges, Justice De Wet handed down his sentence. Addressing the accused, Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Ahmed Jhathrada, Andrew Mlangeni, Raymond Mhaba, Elias Motsoaledi and Dennis Goldberg - The judge said that he did not have to give them a death sentence. But that was the only mercy he could show."

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Life sentences were imposed on the late former president, Nelson Mandela, and seven other co-accused, Dennis Goldberg, Kathy Kathrada, Andrew Mlangeni and the late Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Raymond Mhlaba and Elias Motsoaledi. The is regarded as one of the most politically significant court cases in South Africa's history.
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.

Piny became a member of the Communist Party in Durban, recruited in 1938 by Bettie du Toit, who grew close to Govan Mbeki too.
It was in the staffroom at Taylor Street Secondary in Durban that Mbeki met a fellow teacher, 22-year-old Epainette Moerane.

I would like to take this time and pay my revolutionary accolade to Mama Epainette Mbeki (MaMofokeng) the wife to struggle icon, Govan Mbeki and former president, Thabo Mbeki, one of Africa's most enlightened and discerning leaders. Her love, humour and ubuntu will be hugely missed
Govan Mbeki? "I have never heard or knew about Mama Mbeki until her death."
In 1940 got married to Govan and moved to live in Mbewuleni, Dutywa district in the former Transkei.
Epainette Mbeki then went to teach at Taylor Street Secondary School in Durban for two years with a colleague Govan Mbeki. …

Rest in peach. Epainette Mbeki pass away at 98. She was the mother of President Thabo Mbeki and wife of Govan Mbeki.
Hamba Kahle MaMbeki . . . May your Soul rest in Peace. We offer our heartfelt condolences to the family of Govan...
As South Africa mourns the death of Mam' Epainette Mbeki,may we never forget what she gave up for the struggle of our liberation. A husband in Govan Mbeki for 24 years in Robben Island. In a last-born son, Jama Mbeki who was killed in Lesotho. In a grandson, Kwanda Mbeki, only off-spring of ever Honourable former President Thabo Mbeki who dissappeared in 1981 to this day even after the TRC, there is still no trace. Ultimately, in a child she gave us 28 years of exile of Thabo Mbeki and who thereafter gave his whole life to South Africa and Africa. May we always remember.
Her Beautiful Spirit Lives On: the sun has set Embewuleni. Epainette Mbeki, the mother to our brightest star (Thabo Mbeki) is no more. The icy cold that still chills us to the bone, was the harbinger of death's carriage. Smile not oh evil death, you are no victor here. Though we mourn the closing of a curtain, our hearts rejoice as we celebrate a life well lived. Bereft of her living sons, MaMbeki became a mother to a village; widowed with a breathing husband, Epainette comforted bereaved families in Mbewuleni; harassed & robbed of daily joy, her shining spirit became the only hope to so many. A diligent teacher to whom many owe their enlightenment. One of the first African women to swell the ranks of the then Communist Party Of South Africa. She also became the agent of Inkululeko - the Party's newspaper. An untiring activist who was the engine of the Communist Party's night school. Made of stunner stuff, she was from a resilient and persevering generation: Govan Mbeki, Oliver Reginald Tambo, Walter S .. ...
Epainette Mbeki (née Moerane) (born 16 February 1916 and died 7 June 2014), commonly known as "MaMbeki", is the mother of former South African President Thabo Mbeki and widow of political activist Govan Mbeki. She lived in Ngcingwane, near Dutywa. Condolences to the former President of the Republic and his family. Rest in eternal peace.
we learn with profound sadness of the passing away of a dear mother, Mama Epainette Mbeki, wife of the late ANC & SACP stalwart, Govan Mbeki & mother of H E former President of the Republic of South Africa hon Thabo Mvuyelwa Mbeki & his esteemed & respected brother Moeletsi Mbeki. The passing away of loved ones is always a sad moment for all Families & the Mbeki Family is No exception. As the People's Alliance we pray our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ guide & stablish & strengthen & soothe their hearts in this somber period of mourning, knowing that she lived life to the full. We are reminded of the words from Scripture in 2Cor5v8'absence from the body, present with the Lord'. We thank God for granting her the long life that she lived by His grace & His plan & His design. Amen. Lord we pray in this hour, you touch the hearts of all the Family & close friends of MaMbeki, soothe them Lord & grant them grace, mercy & peace, in this period. God Bless. Amen.
A gracious woman has left us... Epainette Mbeki, former President Thabo Mbeki’s mother and wife to our father, Govan Mbeki... Rest in Peace

There are many issues that have led me to my decision not to vote. These include: • The killing of people in Marikana still makes me angry. • Children are dying of starvation while our government spends millions on upgrading Nkandla. • After 20 years of freedom, many schools in the rural area are still made of mud. • Government corruption. As I said before, I know these reasons might not be good enough for you, but they are to me, and so I will sit out this year’s election. And by doing so I don’t mean any disrespect to the memory of Walter Sisulu, Oliver Tambo, Govan Mbeki and Albert Luthuli. I’m just exercising my right not to vote. I’m sure they would not want me to do something I don’t believe in.
Just heard an interview with "Ma Mbeki" at 98 years of age- speaking strongly and lucidly with more common sense and authority than any of our latter day ANC politicians. She says that the education system is failing the youth, that the electoral system must be changed to allow people to vote for a person and not a party who gives jobs to friends etc, over which the people at grassroots level (and in between) have no control over. She also says that the politicians( and all public servants) need to learn humility , and to serve the citizens and not be self-serving the way things are now. What an amazing woman. It's no wonder she is one of the last struggle icons left and was married to Govan Mbeki and had a son like Thabo Mbeki . At least there was vision and integrity there and to a certain extent, greater resolve. The ANC would do well to heed her words. It should be the reality check they need to come back down to earth from the heady heights of parliament which should be properly grounded in good gove ...

Vuyisile Mini was born in 1920 in Tsomo in rural Transkei.

He was also active in campaigns against forced removals of Black people from Korsten (where he lived) to Kwazakhele. After completing elementary school, he worked as a labourer and trade union organiser.

Thembisile Chris Hani was born in the rural village of Sabalele, in the Cofimvaba region of the former Transkei. He was the fifth of the six children of Gilbert and Mary Hani, and one of the three that did not die during infancy. The name Chris was adopted by him as a nom de guerre, and was in fact the real name of his brother. Chris grew up a devout Christian. Hani was introduced to the politics of inequality early in life, when his father had to leave their rural home in search of work in the urban areas of South Africa. This had a profound influence on the young Chris, who became aware of his mother's struggle to run the household. Like other young men of his age, Chris tended the livestock until he reached school-going age. Hani was enrolled at a Catholic school ...

The Bethal Complains Forum had a meeting today with the Executive Mayor, the Municipal Manager, Regional Manager of Bethal and Director for technical service. The meeting was held as a result of a section 4 meeting which was held on the 10th of April 2014. In this section 4 meeting the municipal representation requested the Bethal Complains Forum to rather consider meeting with the Mayor & Municipal Manager, which the Forum represented by Miss Michelle Viljoen, Mr Walter Arrow and Mr Daniel Maseko who is also a DA candidate for National Parliament. On the meeting held on the 10th of April with the Mayor firstly blamed the ward councilors for failing to call public meetings and address community challenges. Issues discussed were amongst others: 1. Housing for Freedom Square residence. 2 Electricity, 3 Sewer spilling into Bethal Dam, 4 Roads conditions- portholes. The Govan Mbeki municipality trough the mouth of the Executive Mayor and the Municipal Manager has promised not only the Bethal Complain Forum b ...
"Revolutions, even modest ones, are made not made in dreams but in concrete, historical situations". Govan Mbeki, Sunset in midday.
My inspiration in struggle has been OR Tambo,Chris Hani,Winnie Madikizela Mandela,Alija Barayi,Mangaliso Sobukhwe,Govan Mbeki ,Jay Naidoo,Peter Mokaba,Frank Chikane,Beyers Naude,Alan Boesak then Nelson Mandela. They all have one think in common,they never gave us their backs,they guided us with great intergrity.They have been parents,brothers,sisters and our comrades.We miss this spirit in our Society.

My decision to join the Party was influenced by our struggle like Govan Mbeki, Braam Fischer, JB Marks, Moses Kotane, Ray Simons
Cadre Chris Hani It was at Fort Hare where He openly engaged in the struggle for the first time because of the liberal nature of that university which emphasized academic freedom and institutional autonomy. It was also here that he came in contact for the first time with Marxist theory as a scientific tool to analyse the development of society and thus engage in the struggle more meaningfully." "He learned Marxism diligently. He began to fully appreciate the extent of the brutality of racial oppression and capitalist exploitation as well as the patriarchal relations of power which make these two demons worse for black women." "He joined the underground SACP in 1961 influenced and inspired by such giants of our revolution as Govan Mbeki, JB Marks, Braam Fischer, Moses Kotane, Ray Simons and others. Because he knew that freedom would not come as a gift, he joined uMkhonto we Sizwe in 1962 to fight for it." "He rose to become an ANC NEC member also serving in the Politico Military Committee. He rose through ...

Politics, politicians, expensive mind games, show no remorse, greed and corruption till the grave. I am an objective "political analyst" and a none card carrying member of the ANC of Albert Luthuli, Oliver Tambo, Joe Slovo, Alfred B Nzo, Helen Joseph, Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Thabo Mbeki etc. The leaders of integrity and dignity. My views and opinions are not bias nor sexists or racists. South Africans our country is between the toilet pipes and the drain. Firstly, SANDRAL in Gauteng is just wasting the State funds, in the mission to recover e-toll funds they spend R154 000 000.00 to only recover R150 000 000.00 meaning they spend more to recover less. Already as it is the millions of motorist that are not registered they owe a half a billion to SANDRAL which they claim those who do not pay will be summoned to court and possibly be arrested. What is the logic of having thousands and thousands of motorists imprisoned if prisons are already jam packed as it is. The ANC and the parti ...
Did u know: Pella, or Matlhako, formerly known as Tampostad, has given to SA one of the most illustrious sons, a political leader extra-ordinaire who prompted both Walter Sisulu and Nelson Mandela to declare that without Moses Mauwane Kotane, the ANC would not have grown in stature the way it did.Kotane is also credited with bringing ever closer the ANC and SACP as the same fellow travellers, persuading stalwarts such as Mandela to withdraw his suspicions of the communists. Kotane and the late Govan Mbeki, father to former President Thabo Mbeki, were close comrades.

Kenneth Kaunda, Julius Nyerere, Agostinho Neto, & many other African leaders in the history of our struggle lie doment in the archives of our history. Their story of heroism & defiance seldom told. As Kenneth Kaunda lies in Hospital I hope many of us will proudly tell his story, that we will not wait until he is laid to rest. His story must b told whilst he is alive. His story of bravery needs to be told. Our children need to know that Lusaka was our second home. Kenneth Kaunda, Oliver Tambo, Archie Sibeko, Govan Mbeki & many freedom fighters should b what we all aspire emulate. Selflessness!

Jewish Rule In South Africa Jews Founded the ANC And Guided It To Power Reported by Deirdre Fields Commentary -- [Bill: The following is derived in large part from an excellent article on the subject entitled "The New South Africa", which appears in the most recent issue of the Barnes Review.] *** Jews conspired to destroy the white South African government and murder the Boer / Afrikaaner people. In the 19th century the British fought wars to subject the Boer states to British Rule. In 1948, the Boers took power democratically, with the election of the National Party. In the 1960s the government of Hendrik Verwoerd took power and implemented the formal separate but equal policies in South Africa. These policies made South Africa the economically strongest nation in Africa, and gave the blacks in South Africa (and the whites) the highest standards of living of any African nation. Verwoerd's policies had two main opponents. One was a Jew named Harry Oppenheimer, the other a Jew named Anton Ruppert. Both c ...

LONG WALK TO FREEDOM Chapter 98 - 99 Chapter 98 EVEN AS DE KLERK became president, I continued to meet with the secret negotiating committee. We were joined by Gerrit Viljoen, the minister of constitutional development, a brilliant man with a doctorate in classics, whose role was to bring our discussions into a constitutional framework. I pressed the government to display evidence of its good intentions, urging the state to show its bona fides by releasing my fellow political prisoners at Pollsmoor and Robben Island. While I told the committee that my colleagues had to be released unconditionally, I said the government could expect disciplined behavior from them after their release. That was demonstrated by the conduct of Govan Mbeki, who had been unconditionally released at the end of 1987. On October 10, 1989, President de Klerk announced that Walter Sisulu and seven of my former Robben Island comrades, Raymond Mhlaba, Ahmed Kathrada, Andrew Mlangeni, Elias Motsoaledi, Jeff Masemola, Wilton Mkwayi, and ...

STATEMENT BY H. E. MR. ABDULRAHIM ABBY FARAH (SOMALIA), CHAIRMAN OF THE SPECIAL COMMITTEE AGAINST APARTHEID, AT THE MEETING OF THE COMMITTEE ON JUNE 26, 1969 Today, 26 June, is traditionally observed by the African National Congress of South Africa and its *** ociate organisations, as well as by many other bodies, including anti-apartheid movements and vario us international organisations, as "South Africa Freedom Day." 26 June was so designated because it was on 26 June 1950 that the first national stay-at-home stri e was organised as a mark of protest against the Suppression of Communism Act and other undemo cratic and unjust legislation. It was, again, on 26 June 1952, that the historic Campaign of Defiance of Unjust Laws was launched. But above all, 26 June was chosen as "South Africa Freedom Day" as it commemorates the historic adoption, on 26 June 1955, of the Freedom Charter by the Congress of the People of South Africa, a multi-racial conference of the opponents of apartheid and racial discri mina ...

Today we addressed the Councillors, CDWs and Ward Committees of Govan Mbeki Municipality on the critical event that we are having in March
We hope to have a leader whose vision resembles that of Oliver Tambo, whose courage is of Nelson Mandela, whose wisdom is of Walter Sisulu and whose resilience is of Govan Mbeki, whose friendship is of Ahmed Kathrada, whose leadership is of Chief/Inkosi Albert Luthuli, whose bravery is of Chris Hani, whose sacrifice is of Solomon Mahlangu, whose intelligence is of Thabo Mbeki, whose speech is of Anton Lembede, whose initiative is of John Dube. We hope for this leader, and pray to GOD to send us this man in this generation.

I had a dream, that as from the 7th May 2014. Julius Malema will be ruling this country. And all names of streets, places, towns and status named after ANC leaders will be removed. That will be replaced by EFF leaders and other small political opposition parties except the ANC. Remember what the ANC did after they defeated the apartheid regime.They name everything after their leaders. You can name Thabo Mbeki street, Joe Slovo, Chris Hani, Nelson Mandela, Govan Mbeki and the list is endless. Even shebeens were named after their mistresses, koDorcas, koNtswaki. These ANC dudes they think for themselves. They changed Potgietersrus to Mokopane. We are going to change it to Mokerong. Mokgopong and Makhado! Whats that? We’ve got names waiting for them. The ANC took over and disassociated itself with anything that has anything to do with apartheid. Even EFF is going to do the same.

CITY OF Cape Town 8 FEBRUARY 2014 MEDIA RELEASE Metro Police Officers wounded in shooting incident Two brave Metro Police officers shot multiple times whilst on duty. Read more below: In the early hours of this morning, two Metro Police officers were conducting routine patrols on Govan Mbeki Drive in Manenberg when they spotted a white VW Polo driving without lights. The officers signalled to the driver to pull over and as they approached the vehicle, the occupants opened fire on them. Both officers; a sergeant and a constable, were shot multiple times and are currently in a serious but stable condition in hospital. It was later confirmed that the vehicle was hijacked in Athlone shortly before the shooting incident. 'Our thoughts are with the officers and their families. We wish them a speedy recovery.

The logic behind not voting: "The ANC will win so wha'ts the point?" Don't those *** know that every abstention is like a vote for the ANC because you could have made the opposition stronger but either you're too stupid or lazy to realize that. Those that do not vote disrespect the legacy of Nelson Mandela ,Steven Bhiko, Govan Mbeki etc.

Govan Mbeki is said to have been a Rigid person, the enemy in Court called him Ruthless. Such that certain Indian comrades on the Island didn't like him. But what I know is that he would never do that to the New Converts. A man of his intellectual stature wouldn't just do to infants. Oom Gov's Theoretical adequacy surely might have provided him with Wisdom in Dealing with ooTata

Former President Thabo Mbeki (as a 22 year old) made this statement in front of the United Nations Special Committee Against Apartheid in 1964, London, a year after his father Govan Mbeki, Nelson Mandela and others were arrested: "If the butchers have their way, we will draw strength even from the little crosses that the kind may put at the head of their graves. In that process we shall learn to hate evil even more, and in the same intensity we shall seek to destroy it. We shall learn to be brave and unconscious of anything but this noblest of struggles. Today we might be but weak children, spurred on by nothing other than the fear and grief of losing our fathers. In time we shall learn to die both for ourselves and for the millions."
ANC great thinkerz of times that history wont forget ever,Mxolisi Majombozi,Anton Lembede,Oliver Tambo,Nelson Mandela,Mzala Nxumalo,Chris Hani,Pixley Ka Semme,Sol Plaatjie,Peter Mokaba,Walter Sisulu,Oom Ray Mhlaba,Govan Mbeki and many more late Cadres of contributory caliber in our Revolution,each of them carry a treasured history of their own n the ANC,they are the sanctuary of our mvment,the less we forget
(Stefanie) Brad Mulder Algoa FM News Port Elizabeth police are searching for a man in his 20's, after a woman was shot dead in Govan Mbeki avenue late last night. Spokesperson, Captain Stanley Jarvis says the 20-year old woman was thrown out of a black VW Polo in Central following an argument with the driver. He says she started walking, and was followed by the man in the vehicle. Jarvis says according to eye witnesses, three shots were fired at her. She was hit in the head and neck, and died at the scene.
South Africans lets consider having Tambo days and Chris Hani days as our public holidays than Christmasday and new years holiday,I cant wait the day we celabrate Slovo day as an holiday,Govan Mbeki day and so on,I am tired of the Christian calender.
"A tribute to our people" by Thabo Mbeki That sense of privilege, which will stay with us for all time, is intensified by our recognition of the fact that never before have we as a people hosted this large a number of high-level delegations representing the peoples of the world. We thank you most sincerely for your presence, which itself constitues a tribute to the millions of our people and a profound statement of hope that all of us will together continue to expand the frontiers of human dignity. For us, as South Africans, this day is as much a day for the inauguration of the new government as it is a day of salute for a generation that pulled our country out of the abyss and placed it on the pedestal of hope, on which it rests today. I speak of the generation represented pre-eminently by our out-going President, Nelson Mandela; the generation of Oliver Tambo, of Walter Sisulu, of Govan Mbeki, of Albertina Sisulu, of Ray Alexander and others. Fortunately, some of these titans are present here today, as ...
Last night I watched a bootlegged version of the Mandela movie. Best thing about the movie: Idris Elba and the title. How do you tell Mandela's "story" without those others involved? Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki and Ahmed Katrada among those who were on Robben Island with Mandela, not one of them is given a little shine in the movie. What about the Bikos and Sobukwe's, the Onkgopotse Tiro's, the thousands exiled? It made the movie about Mandela and not Mandela within the context of liberation struggle. It was typical history as told through an individual rather than a collective effort in which heroic individual occasionally step forward. As an aside, I liked Idris but I would like to see films like those pull heavily from continental African actors who should get a chance to be foreground in their narratives. If you love Idris Elba (and lots and lots of us women do) then see it. However, if you want to see a good movie about Mandela, Winnie, the ANC and the struggle, don't watch it. The acting wasn't bad, ...
Respect to all our struggle apartheid heroes all of them who contributed and sacrifice for all of us to be free even though some of abuse that freedom legends like Walter Sisulu,Ahmed Khathrada,Govan Mbeki ,Oliver Tambo,Alfred Nzo ,Andrew Mlangeni and the man himself who is a respected all over our father of our beloved country Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela I say thank u to all of them u made it possible to us all after watching the movie Long walk to freedom seeing what they went through for us I will never take my freedom for granted cause it never came easy and I will make sure my kids know that and also to those who participated lost their lives during those times I say it was not all for nothing u also contributed to ur families freedom and to all ANC giants who have passed on Oliver Tambo,Walter Sisulu,Alfred Nzo ,Joe Slovo ,Chris Hani and recently Tata Madiba I say may ur soul rest in peace and keep on fighting for us even when ur in ur resting place and thank u a trillion times especially Mr Mandela t ...
“One of South Africa’s Prime Ministers, Verwoerd or Vorster was asked about political prisoners in South Africa. He replied that there was only one political prisoner in South Africa and that was Robert Sobukwe. The rest, he said, were his followers. He included ANC members and their leaders like Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu and Govan Mbeki.”
I wanted to play Govan Mbeki. My personal honor.
Long live the spirit of Nelson Mandela,OR.Tamboo,Govan Mbeki,Walter Sisulu,Ruth First the list is endless Amandla!!!
Also enjoyed seeing you play Govan Mbeki
Wow, this movie is awesome. Idris Elba walks & talks like Mandela. I got to understand our history better. It's a must see, it's painful, but very informative nge history yetfu. Now I fully understand da sacrifices Mandela, Winnie, Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Kathrada, Mhlaba & them had to make for us to be free. I would watch it over & over.
Just bought myself 2 vests for under R60... :) pity I didn't get white though. The wonders of Govan Mbeki
The condition at Secunda Dumping Site has gotten worse since Govan Mbeki Municipality closed it. People are now dumping next to the main road with scavengers making fires and more of a mess.
Son of Govan Mbeki, protege of Oliver Tambo and successor to Nelson Mandela, Thabo Mbeki was given the immense task of making SA work
How we funded anti-apartheid struggle in S/Africa – Jonathan Being excerpts of an address by President Goodluck Jonathan to South African Parliament in Cape Town, May 7, 2013 during his current state visit to the country. 1. May I use this opportunity to say how delighted my delegation and I have been since our arrival in South Africa. I am also deeply appreciative of the warm hospitality and reception accorded to us. This is also evident in the manner the leadership of the Parliament has received us this afternoon. All of these are consistent with the well-known South African hospitality. I wish, particularly, to thank my brother, President Jacob Zuma, for extending the invitation to me to pay this State Visit to South Africa. 2. Mr Speaker, Distinguished Parliamentarians, Ladies and Gentlemen, it is indeed a great honour to be given the opportunity to address the Joint Sitting of members of this august body, the South African Parliament. As the arm of government charged with the important responsibili ...
Interesting circus at Mogalakwena Municipality amid one of the greatest slumber of the Communist Party in Govan Mbeki District
we would have booed him on Govan Mbeki's memorial service
We need a generation with a Govan Mbeki intellect, an Oliver Tambo drive, a Walter Sisulu perseverance and the unity of Nelson Mandela.
False. She was convicted of assault and kidnapping. O.R. Tambo and Govan Mbeki campaigned internationally for his release
S'truu brah. If you're ever bored read some of his brothers works (Govan Mbeki), quite the thinker
Our Jacob of Nkandla wouldnt approve that RT"I will go with Govan Mbeki International Airport!"
Nelson Mandela AFRICA THANKS YOU . I wonder what Africa would be if the World Leadership visited a Continent beyond a Man celebrated by Africans for so many years in times when he was unwanted anywhere else . But so much wanted , respected and loved in his continent by his peoples because he said : my peoples matter more than my life. It was not easy to black in the continent and anywhere else my father told me and it was even harder to be black and conscious. And my mother to say , marrying a black freedom fighter was marrying a struggle , just an idea but not a man. We thank the whole world for celebrating the man Nelson Mandela and I am sure Africa is not mad at me saying so. As much as Africa would not be mad at me just saying we as Africans knew an ideal more than we knew of a man who always identified himself as so . And as all were kind enough to celebrate him I am sure as always he is kind enough to appreciate you sharing and living his ideal of Love , Peace , Unity and Justice . No better cele .. ...
Govan Mbeki, Raymond Mhlaba, Andrew Mlangeni and Elias Motsoaledi join up from the Cape regions. As does Ronnie Kasrils in Durban
WHO COOKED THE SOUP? IN RESPONSE TO THE UNCOUTH AND RENTED MARIANNE NGHIDENGWA OF CONFIDENTE NEWSPAPER AND HER STREET VENDORS ON THE MANDELA MATTER 13 December 2013 By Job Shipululo Amupanda I became aware of Confidente´s plans to run a story on and about me through the questions sent to the SPYL Secretary Comrade Dr. Tjitunga Elijah Ngurare. On December 13, 2013, I read the story online, while preparing for sessions, in Ecuador. The story was titled “Amupanda in hot soup over Mandela sell-out remark.” They did not tell the readers who cooked the soup. From the reading of the article, three (3) objectives becomes clear; (1) to character assassinate my person and present me as insensitive, ill-disciplined and a liability to the SWAPO Party (the movement); (2) to drag in the movement in personal matters having nothing to do the party; (3) and finally to make a contribution to the greater scheme of what the Paguel Thugs “it is a matter of time before we get rid of the boy.” All these are of course m ...
"We longed for bread everyday yet the people who denied us of bread were telling us everyday how they were Christian ,they prayed...give US this day our daily bread..but we were not included in the US...they prayed twice a day" Govan Mbeki on Robben Island experience This statement broke my heart...forgive us and every Christian who are still performing ills in Your name.
lol Tata Govan Mbeki " These men that deprived us of bread - were Christians who prayed : Give us our daily bread everyday, I'm sure even twice a day with their kids and families and yet they deprived us of our daily bread in Roben Island".. lol
Mandela Passing Ends an Era of Heroism and Struggle The late Afro Beat King Fela Kuti played a concert at Legon in the early 1970s during which a hilarious but historically significant incident occurred. Fela had a troupe of about 20 young women in his entourage who danced rather provocatively as part of the show. They would bump and gyrate their behinds as the musician pranced about the stage wowing the audience with his melodious tunes and rebellious lyrics. At some point during the show Fela suddenly screamed an order to the band to stop playing and like soldiers obeying their general the music ground to a sudden halt. Fela claimed that someone at the front touched one of the women on the bottom, or “nyass” as Fela called it. He asked the guilty person to own up or those who saw him to give him up. When nobody was coming forward he launched into a long speech about how those women were artists and deserved respect and all that. He then threatened to walk out of the show amid pleading cries from the ...
The A team of the ANC John Dube, Sefako Makgatho, Zaccheus Mahabane, Josiah Gumede, Pixley Seme Alfred Xuma, James Moroka, Albert Luthuli, Oliver Tambo, Govan Mbeki, Walter Sisulu together with Joe Slovo, Steve Biko, Chriss Hhani. they are all celebrating the arrival of .Nelson Mandela
Some of us wondered why Govan Mbeki objected to Thabo Mbeki becoming President of ANC and country. Well he knew his son was too self centred
We remember Govan Mbeki as a good comrade of Madiba. They differed sharply at times, however, Govan never attempted to undermine Madiba!
Tata Madiba you & Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki and many others built a sure foundation for South Africa! Nothing will destroy your hard work.
HOW TO ANSWER STUPID QUESTIONS ABOUT Nelson Mandela 15 December 2013 By: Pedro Mzileni President Nelson Mandela was a political animal who has made our history fashionable to even a 3-year-old this December. Even the popularity of the festive season with its alcohol and DJ's did not stand a chance. Unfortunately, his political animalism did not attract people who understand him in this jungle of political animals. There's a difference between knowing and understanding. Now as political animals ourselves, we are forced to separate lions from cheetahs. Keeping things simple is a liberal addiction that seems to never find relevance in our politics. Even googled-research about Comrade President Nelson Mandela doesn't assist them because its a liberal salad itself. Here are a few questions and myths expressed by many liberal crusaders that we must answer with patience. MYTH Nelson Mandela made the ANC FACT Nelson Mandela was born 6 years after the ANC was formed. Whilst he was being carried out of his mother's ...
Govan Mbeki used to say it's dangerous to 'feed' people with slogans because they do not think. Yes, there must be sweat behind.
Ode to Nelson Mandela Always will be remembered I will cherish your loyalty to Africa until the day I also see you sited somewhere beside Albert Luthuli, Walter Sisulu, Steve Biko, AP Mda, Tsietsi Mashinini, Lillian Ngoyi, Govan Mbeki, Chris Hani, Albertina Sisulu, Oliver Tambo, Peter Mokaba and the likes. I could have sworn I felt the ground shake When your soul escaped form the body it was kept I could hear the sounds and celebrations of the jubilations in *** last night when the world wept - the angel has gone where he belongs. Hope they tell me where they bury you so I come and lie down near you and listen to all your stories Stories of how you and your comrades marched down the streets towards the enemy Ran Soweto carrying nothing but banners the only bullets you had was the shouts of 'freedom'. How did you really feel when you drank coffee with the same men who put you in cages? I bet they almost died of your brutal, unconditional forgiveness. Dear Nelson Take thy place as God's greatest grandson B ...
It was nice to see Dr. Kenneth Kaunda running to the podium. It says a lot about his diet, for those who don't know, he's vegetarian! But the outstanding remark for me was when he told Cyril Ramaphosa: this young man is trying to stop the old man who fought the boers and his persistence of using the word at every instance. Had they given him enough time, you would've seen his tears. Great leaders of our times. Not forgetting Oliver Tambo, Walter Sisulu, Thomas Sankara, Kwame Nkurumah, Mwalimu Nyerere, Bantu Biko, Brendan Simbwaye, Robert Mugabe, Sam Nujoma, Toivo ya Toivo, Andrew Mhlangeni, Chris Hani, Mama Winnie, Marcus Garvey, Martin Luther king jr., Govan Mbeki. Be reminded they did theirs, power now is within me and you. What can we use this power for? Find the answer to that question within yourself. God bless Africa.
In October 9, 1963 Rivonia Trialists Mandela, Sisulu, Govan Mbeki n others charged with attempting to overthrow the state.
Govan Mbeki sound exactly like Thabo...wow!!
I think ANC got its own heaven. I heard them saying he is with Govan Mbeki, Oliver Tambo, Chris Hani and the rest.
Cde Vavi do u have a video of Govan Mbeki's funeral? I'm collecting videos of all our leaders, late n alive ones.
JZ sings that song well but nothing compared to the day he sang it for oom Govan Mbeki
now our Hero is gone, now our Icon is nomore, now our president ukunye nabalingani bakhe, O.R Tambo, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Chris Hani, Braam Ficher, Joe Slovo, Peter Mokaba and many others! They will always important in the struggle of this nation.

MANDELA'S BIOGRAPHY Mandela's one-week long burial ceremony draws to a close with his burial today in South Africa. President Obama, Prince Charles, David Cameron and several heads of government where present during the week. Rolihlahla Mandela was born in Mvezo, Transkei, on July 18, 1918, to Nonqaphi Nosekeni and Nkosi Mphakanyiswa Gadla Mandela. His father died when he was 12 and he became a ward of the Thembu Regent Jongintaba Dalindyebo where he heard stories of his ancestor’s valour. At primary school in Qunu his teacher Miss Mdingane gave him the name Nelson, in accordance with the custom to give all school children “Christian” names. His university studies were cut short when he was expelled for joining a student protest but he completed his BA by correspondence and graduated in 1943. He and his cousin Justice fled in 1941 when the Regent began arranging their marriages. In Johannesburg he did his law articles and registered to study for an LLB. He finally graduated in 1989 while in the last ...
Today we bid a final farewell to the Father of our Nation, Comrade President Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. He goes to join his friends, Govan Mbeki, Walter & Albertina Sisulu, Oliver Tambo, all former Rivonia Trialists and Robben Island prisoners. We will never forget what you have done for our country Madiba
THE END OF AN ERA- Good Night Nelson Mandela!!! Dear Friends! As Africa and the World, lays one of her Great Icons of Peace, Lover of Sports and Unity, I wish to Portray his Works, achievements and Legacy, through this Timeline. To condense all of Mr Nelson Mandela's achievements into one chronology would be impossible; as a result, I do not claim that this work here is comprehensive. Below you will find a chronology of important events in his life. It is a work in progress and am happy to receive your comments or additions. 1918 July 18 Born Rolihlahla Mandela at Mvezo in the Transkei 1925 Attends primary school near Qunu (receives the name ‘Nelson’ from a teacher) Circa 1930 Entrusted to Thembu Regent Jongintaba Dalindyebo 1934 Undergoes initiation; Attends Clarkebury Boarding Institute in Engcobo 1937 Attends Healdtown, the Wesleyan College at Fort Beaufort 1939 Enrols at the University College of Fort Hare, in Alice 1940 Expelled 1941 Escapes an arranged marriage; becomes a mine night watchman; S ...

Your spirit will live on. Siyabulela,Qawe lama Qawe!! Adieu et Merci Beacoup Tata!! Hamba Khale,Umkhoto!!
I have seen Madiba addressing Cde Peter Mokaba, Walter Sisulu, Raymond Mhlaba, Govan Mbeki and many other comrades funerals and some instances Madiba tributes were read by his wife Graca. The million dollar question is why President Mbeki is excluded. I understood that the national memorial service President Zuma spoke on behalf of the nation but why do they exclude him in the ANC memorial service.
When recounting their ordeals during hard times with his comrades in Robben Island, Govan Mbeki relayed a very sad story about how they were deprived of bread. White wardens at Robben Island were deeply religious, staunch christians, yet they would not give Mandela, Oom Gov and other black prisoners bread. But these wardens would come to work every morning to tell black prisoners how they prayed every night at dinner with their families. Like true Christians, they would pray to God: please give us our daily bread". Yet they would not give black prisoners bread. Mandela, Govan Mbeki and other black prisoners longed for bread. How many of us take having bread every morning as we do today for granted? Hasta la victoria siempre. .
It seems like a long speech and if you are not religious or follow another faith it really does not matter. I had the pleasure of hearing the very moving tributes made yesterday and feel deeply that the following speech should be heard by the world bringing the essence of Mandela into a very personal context. Beautiful. Wednesday 11 December 2013 When Nelson Mandela came to Britain 13 years ago he described himself as an ‘unemployed pensioner with a criminal record.’ Yet what he had achieved is one of the great feats of the twentieth century. Isaiah chapter 11 promises that in the midst of Israel’s despair one shall arise who represents a future beyond the people’s imagination. This is what it says about that figure: ‘The spirit of the Lord shall rest on him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.’ Those words have a particular resonance in view of the tributes laid in the last few days at the feet of Nelson .. ...
Indeed Madiba your life need to be celebrated bt our leaders not just celebrate bt also learn lessons. I hv watched aprofile of this guy and asked can we hv determined Africans like Oliver Thambo, Albert Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Madiba Mandela,Winnie Mandela among to fight dominance. RIP Madiba, I hv learn Alot from u.
Pitika's Poem for Madiba that he read on eNCA: Madiba ka Hala, The Last Walk! Struck by a lightning bolt in the dead of night Dazed and disoriented Grappling with a cauldron of emotions Struggling sinew and nerve to bid farewell to an immortal Caught in the whirlwind what do I do? I bleed a poem! When sadness and celebrations commingle The body shudders shakes and implodes Ancestral winds blow memories The land heaves dreams of a future without you Madiba You are lodged in our memories You tower over the world like comet Leaving streaks of light for us to follow! We salute you! Madiba! Ka Hala ka Dlomo ka Nxeko ka Ntande ka Mnguti ka Cedume ka Mvelase ka MTHEMBU! * The giant iroko and the baobab tree has fallen A colossus Prometheus who stole the fire of the gods To light our path to freedom Who lit our stoves to cook a meal Of peace and reconciliation! Put differently! The giant tree has fallen Scattering a billion bright leaves Each replicating a million messages of peace Of love and reconciliation! Sha ...
Lets us restore pride,respect and dignity in ANC just to pay tribute to John Dube,Govan mbeki,Sisulu,Mandela and Tambo.
Operation Mayibuye Nelson Mandela first discussed the possibility of using violence against the state in the early 1950s, but it was only in June 1961 that he raised the issue with the ANC’s Working Committee, and on that occasion Moses Kotane, who was an ANC executive member as well as the secretary of the SACP, vigorously opposed the idea. But Mandela convinced him and Kotane did not oppose the idea when Mandela again brought up the issue at a meeting. Eventually, he was authorised to form uMkhonto we Sizwe. David Welsh, in a book published in 2009, says: ‘Operation Mayibuye was the strategic plan, drawn up in 1963, whereby MK proposed the transition to guerrilla warfare. Hundreds of MK recruits would go abroad for military training, thereafter returning to four rural areas to be joined by thousands of local recruits. Attacks would be launched on strategic targets, complemented by urban sabotage and mobilisation for protest. Including a national anti-pass campaign. By mid-1963, 300 people had been s ...
One ANC, One Mandela, One Vote!!! Mandela became President of the country because of the ANC, He was in Prison as a result of struggle led by the ANC. Govan Mbeki was intact in Robben Island for 25years with him, released around the sametime Mandela began house arrest.
Hope this week has made us*the youth of today* reflect on r lives and appreciate what we have and the likes of Tambo, Sobukwe, Sisulu,Mandela, Govan Mbeki...the list is endless. Freedom in my lifetime.this is are struggle today HIV/AIDS, teenage pregnacy, drug abuse, corruption. ... we are spitting on their graves
infact Luthuli ws a nobel peace prize laureate as ealry as 1961 b4 Madibas incarceration..Madiba shared his award with De Klerk..Tambo spearheaded the anti-apartheid struggle as ANC president whilst Madiba & other Rivonia convicts were doing time in jail..how could Madiba hv fought a lone battle against apartheid whilst in jail for 27 yrs??..how about Luthuli,Govan Mbeki,Oliver Tambo,Walter Sisulu,Ahmed Kathrada,Joe Slovo,Chris Hani,Mac Maharaj & others..surely apartheid wsnt fought by Madiba alone as 46664. In renouncing nationalisation,ANC deviated from its central vision of its founders courtesy of Madiba..
A frail gentleman entered the conference hall supported by an elderly lady. There was some commotion as we realized it was Nelson Mandela who had entered the room with Graca Machel, Kofi Annan and Nana Annan. We were at the Say YES for children campaign at the UN General Assembly special session for children in New York, USA in 2002. This was the first time I laid eyes on the man who I had read and heard so much about. The man who had gone through so much in a struggle for the freedom of the black African population in South Africa and revered around the world. My first thought was that he looked so old and frail, not like the man I had imagined him to be after reading the stories. This made him mortal as opposed to the picture of him in my young mind. This was when one of the first lessons I learnt from Nelson Mandela became clear. I learnt that all our heroes are mortals like us, but they embrace that mortality and give up their comforts and many times their lives for a cause. For Mandela, it was losi ...
Imvula isakhapha umkhul'uMadiba , inganikhalisi kakhulu , I was jus imagine lately , Mandela's spirit reunite with those of Albert Luthuli , Oliver Reginald Tambo , Walter Sisulu , Joe Slovo , Govan Mbeki , da list is endless , I wonder how is the atmosphere there , the good spirits zidibene kwakhona ? U can also picture that , Afternoon buddies , one love.
Madiba once said,the first thing he gonna do when he reaches heaven will be to look for the nearest branch of ANC.I think that is where the likes of Walter Sisulu,Govan Mbeki,Albert Luthuli and other stalwarts will ask him about the status of ANC,I think he will avoid to answer the toll gate saga,the nkandla issue or the gupta issue.What do u think?

WHAT IS Nelson Mandela’S LEGACY? In paying tribute to Nelson Mandela the corporate media and Hollywood should not conceal his mistakes or glorify him as a flawless personality whose character is without blemish. His role in the liberation struggle should be acknowledged just like many before him, his contemporaries and those who came after him but it should not be exaggerated. Many articles were penned by this writer on Nelson Mandela even before he became President of South Africa, including two book reviews on Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela and Young Mandela by David James Smith. This writer’s point of departure will be a reflection of Mandela’s years as a young person as revealed by PAC founding President Mangaliso Robert Sobukwe, especially because Mandela passed away on the birthday of Sobukwe. The question is whether Mandela was the way the media, especially the Western media, portrays him? Was he really the African people’s saviour? During an interview conducted by Gail Gerhard in A ...
Just finished watching I'm disappointed to say I am not impressed, thought the movie would change my perspective of the late Former ANC President Nelson Mandela but instead assured me that he was everything I sensed he was... He sold out his fellow freedom fighters, defied the ANC as well as let down South Africans... He 4got who he was fighting for, it became "I" instead of "we" and don't tell me the movie wasn't written by him because it was taken from his book, an account of him... And I still don't understand why there is no mention of Chris Hani, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Oliver Tambo, Cyril Ramaphoza, Chief Albert Luthuli & Steve Biko 2 mention a few... This movie paints the Apartheid struggle as a 1 man show, painting the Soweto Uprising, Sharpville Massacre and Massacres in KZN as merely petty... I am disappointed!
Nelson Mandela, known for his sense of humour, which most of our leaders here lack, once joked that when he died and he went to heaven, he would first look for his other colleagues in the struggle to free South Africa from Apartheid Oliver Tambo, Govan Mbeki, Albert Luthuli, to take him to the ANC headquarters for him to register. I believe he has done that already as he is heading the militant wing of the party in heaven.
Barack Obama, commands a lot of respect in his speech and he has a lot of presence, that marks the qualities of a states man, one can safely say in terms of leadership trajectory, he is in the league of the Nelson Mandelas, Oliver Tambo, Govan Mbeki, Chief Albert Luthuli and Thabo Mbeki... just to mention few...
THANX TATA for leaving us with such a gently rain this is a true sign that the Real Son Of De Soil is now Welcomed by the ancestors of our mother land:HAMBA KAHLE MKHONDO WE SIZWE baku lindile bo Sisulu nabo OR Tambo Govan Mbeki dr James Moroka Chris Hani Steve Tshwete etc basoku fike baku amukhele:your spirit will remain with us now always & forever U will be forever cherished & loved LALA NGO QOLO QAWE LA MAQAWE
Few people will really understand the legacy through so much suffering that Madiba, Steve Biko, Govan Mbeki, Walter Sisulu but to name a few have left for us. When we started our SACCO it was during a period where gatherings of 3 or more non whites were illegal, where it was so difficult to or even impossible open a bank account for a majority of people, where we had difficulty to withdraw our money as a SACCO, where some of our fellow credit unions had to ask head office to send a white face so that they can withdraw their own funds. Things have changed so much for the better, we have lots of challenges but I will never want to go back to where we were. I am truly free.
Very sad about the loss of Mandela but incredibly privileged that our family was part of his extraordinary story. Mum often sheltered fugitives at our home in Port Elizabeth, when they met to plan the resistance movement, including Mandela, Govan Mbeki and Walter Sisulu. And of course dad spent time on Robben Island as part of the resistance movement. It's impossible to comprehend what life was like for them. I was fortunate enough to hear Mandela speak at the opening of Parliament in Cape Town in 1997
My take on the Mandela Story (Its long, so be forewarned...) Mandela certainly deserves all the tributes and in some instances panegyrics from all over the world. My take on the lessons from his life: 1. Mandela's achievements were made possible because he worked as part of a collective and was supported by colleagues. He built on what was started by people like Albert Lithuli and Govan Mbeki. In prison he had Sissulu and others while outside prison Tambo and co kept the flame burning. Those who want to emulate his example should remember this. 2. He was willing to pay a heavy personal price for his convictions. The time in prison is usually what comes to mind.
