EFF hits koppie on the head on land redress Malema’s unflinching stance offers the liberation movement an opportunity for reconciliation. ￼ The Economic Freedom Fighters’ launch at the site of the Marikana massacre near Rustenburg in North West province on October 13 was a clever use of symbols to meld a new identity. (Paul Botes) Andile Mngxitama: Politics mg.co.za, Fri 18 Oct 2013 00:00 GMT+2 At the launch of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) last weekend, just before the party's president, Julius Malema, gave his speech, a call was made for the EFF "national anthem" to be sung. More than 20 voices rose as one on the Marikana koppie where scores were massacred, and bellowed "Azania!" to the sky. The rest of the lyric of the meditative song commits to a fight to return Azania to its people by any means necessary. Something magical and almost impossible happened at that moment. Finally, the children of Nelson Mandela, Robert Sobukwe and Steve Biko spoke the same mythical language of a people searc ...

We are the greatest phillosophers of times, Marcus Garvey is an example, we are part of the militant souls that ever lived, I'm talking of Malcom X and Chris Hani, we are the determined youth of Hector Peterson and Solomon Mahlangu, the Nation of Orliver Tambo and Robert Sobukwe. We are of the patriots, the intellectuals and Afrocentric souls, the likes of Thabo Mbeki and Mugabe.

The best leaders SA ever had. We short of Chris Hani, Robert Sobukwe, OR Tambo.
Every Generation has its own mission to accomplish..the generation of OR Tambo, Robert Sobukwe, Steve Biko, Nelson Mandela and many more of our political struggle veterans had their own mission and they did their best to achieve that mission they were indebted to make it to come and pass in their lifetime time. It is our time now to materialize the mission of our generation. Economic Freedom in our lifetime is inevitable whether the agents of white capitalists( the likes of Cyril Ramaphosa and Patrice Motsepe) likes it or not. Economic Freedom Fighters is the last HOPE of those who are still oppressed post 20 years of partial political freedom. We have did our level best to penetrate and brake the walls of Jericho, that was hindering our people to know their real enemy and now is to re-adressing the critical issues that is affecting the working class in the four corners of our country. We were oppressed during apartheid era but we are still under the bondage of poverty's shackles without any redress of be ...

Reaffirming my Africanism by reading the Inaugural speech by Robert Sobukwe as a PAC president read more "Sir, Sons and Daughters of Afrika! Mr. Speaker as already informed you that we had hoped that this inaugural Convention of the Africanists would be opened by Dr. Kamuzu Hastings Banda, failing which, by Mr. Kenneth Kaunda of the Zambia African National Congress in Northern Rhodesia. Both have been unable to attend our convention, for both are now, in the language of the colonialists, "detained" in some concentration camps because they dared to demand the right of self determination for the indigenous African people of Nyasaland and Northern Rhodesia. The honourable task of opening this conference has, therefore, fallen to me, an Africanist, and I wish to thank the Central Committee for the honour. I am particularly grateful for the opportunity this offers me to treat briefly of certain issues relevant to our struggle which, though adequately treated in the documents that will be considered by this Con ...

Requiem to that defenseless young girl stoned to death by the American sponsored Boko Haram. May her unfathoming soul never rest. May her soul haunt each and every one of us to wake up. May her soul speak a resounding roar to humanity. May her soul communicate with society as emphatic as our many freedom fighters. May her soul's name be crucified on our hearts so we never forget. May her soul be remembered and placed alongside Steve Biko, Frantz Canon, Chris Hani, Robert Sobukwe, Malcolm X and many others. May her soul *** our consciousness... ...I keep saying this WE ARE A SICK SOCIETY!
Long before Helen Zille "made" Lindiwe Mazibuko, Mr and Mrs Caley made Robert Sobukwe. The missionary couple paid for the young Sobukwe's university fees, a sacrifice they made because they wanted to see "more educated leaders" amongst blacks. According to Benjamin Pogrund, author of Sobukwe's biography, "They also liked and respected Sobukwe's intellectual abilities but had little understanding of his thinking processes, or of the forces at work that were having an effect on him". As with Zille, disillusionment for the Caleys' would come unexpectedly in the autumn of 1949, May to be exact. Pogrund writes: According to Mathew Nkoana, a well-known journalist and a member of the Pan Africanist Congress, in a May 1949 article in Drum magazine, the Principal [sic] of Healdtown made a speech at Forth Hare about the brotherhood of man, suggesting it could be fostered between white and black by personal contact in homes and in informal meetings without changing the state's laws. Sobukwe addressed him: 'The momen ...

LIBERATION SPOILS... are more tempting than Delilah's beauty. Our Robert Sobukwe and Steve Biko both died untimely. Joe Slovo, Oliver Tambo and Chris Hani were wearied by the long struggle and are amongst casualties of this "our struggle". Nelson had a liking for the fine things life offers. So we had no "great egalitarian leader in Red" ...of Chairman Mao's mould. Karl Marx's theories and nationalism don't mix. The Red quickly fades into Black (think Mussolini). All those noble ideas about a classless society, only but a pipe dream. After all no one in Africa struggles to be poor.
Truth is had Robert Sobukwe became President of a Liberated Azania he would have given us Real Freedom not this sugar coated one
One is convinced of the ultimate triumph of our cause, because it is a just cause. While we are fighting for the vindication of every man’s right to life abundant, those who oppress us are fighting in defence of greed and baaskap arrogance. We have a strong intellectual and moral case. They have none. Ultimately they rely on pure brute force. We can justifiably look upon ourselves as the champions of mankind, because our aim is to restore to and preserve for mankind the best in human civilization---and we use the term ‘human’ advisedly, for we don’t subscribe to the view that civilization is the proud possession of any particular group of people or any particular part of the globe. We are sure to win because right must triumph over might, freedom over serfdom. We are sure to win because the lessons of history are that those who are fighting in a struggle such as our own are assured of victory.” ~Robert Sobukwe

It's sad that the story of Robert Sobukwe is never been told. My view about liberation changed the day I first visited Robben Island. It is rare that you may find the name Jafta Masemola in any book about our struggle. I could agree that our struggle to Economic Freedom changed the time senior ANC members left communist. I think CODESA was all about compromises.

Since the assassination by firing squad of Patrice Lumumba in January 1961 took place, the people of the Congo have never known political happiness. Then there was Kwame Nkrumah, , Sankara, Gadhafi and Samora MacHel. (I mention only the popular names; there were many like them). Robert Sobukwe, was also poisoned. What is common about the deaths of these sons of Africa is that their thoughts and actions were inimical to the interest of imperialism. Sadly, most of them died with the help of their own African brothers. Since the PAC carries the ideas and ideals of these heroes, it is not surprising that it is targeted by the same imperialists and with the help of our brothers. A pretty bundle of PAC votes were stolen, once again.
I am inspired by Thomas Sankara, I have respect just like Walter Sisulu, I have a forgiving heart like Nelson Mandela, I love people just like Steve Biko, I do not belong to you alone but to the nation just like Kwame Nkrumah, i am a man of God just like Tiyo ka Soga, I love kids just like Albertina Sisulu, I love reggae music just like Bob Marley, I enjoy writing just likeFrantz Fanon, Chinua Achebe, I like poetry just like Ben Okri, I like reading just like Thabo Mbeki, and most importantly I am a Thinker, a Visionary and a Pan Africanist just like Robert Sobukwe. -Noble Son

They left too soon: The tenth anniv of maDlomo's departure brought tears to my eyes as it did when this "Weekend Special" celebrity tragically died. She joined a long list of black people who showed apartheid that there are actually "clever blacks", crowd-pullers and deep thinkers in the arts, academia, sports, politics, business etc. This list includes Athur "Dancing Shoes" Mayisela, Paul Ndlovu, Moses Taiwa Molelekwa, Prof. Sam Nolutshungu, Steve Biko, Robert Sobukwe, Chief Albert Luthuli, OR Tambo, Chris Hani etc. We know why we were robbed of our land, culture, religion, dignity and self determination but this nation is at a loss to explain why we were robbed of these icons. Only the heavens can answer this question. Farewell Brenda Fasi, we will always sing your songs, we will keep you alive in our hearts as a nation, we shall dance to the beat and ponder on the lyrics. With you, our lives have never been the same, without you, our lives will never be the same.

Very sad for PAC. Robert Sobukwe must be turning in his grave.
People of Azania, you have failed Robert Sobukwe :(
I took the time to read widely on Mangaliso Robert Sobukwe today after two stressful tests. This was of course informed by the ANC's victory in the general elections. Having studied internal politics and factionalism within the ANC. I asked myself burning questions particularly about; disgruntled forces within the movement who broke away from the ANC, I come to a realisation that Sobukwe is the only leader that left the ANC out of principle rather than bitterness and anger nor attention seeking attempts. Given his remarks in kliptown when he said, “In 1955 the Kilptown Charter was adopted, which according to us, is irreconcilable conflict with the 1949 Programme seeing that it claims land no longer Africa, but is auctioned for sale to all who live in this country. We have come to the parting of the ways and we are here and now giving notice that we are disassociating ourselves from the ANC as it is constituted at present in the Transvaal.” I realise more and more that indeed if there are issues we ca ...

" We will wacth you too, we have been reminded time and again that fellows who while at College, were radicals, and as soon as they got outside became spineless stooges and screeching megaphones of white Herrenvolkism or else become disgruntled and disillusioned objects of pity. My contention is: those fellows never were radicals. They were anti White, and like Marcus Gavey says: You cannot grow beyond your thoghts. If your thoughts are those of a Slave, you will remain a Slave: "If your thoughts go skin-deep, your mental development will remain skin-deep." Moreover a doctrain of hate can never take people anywhere." Mangaliso Robert Sobukwe. (1947: 4). Graduation address- Speeches of Mangaliso Robert Sobukwe: Completers Social.
Come on the IEC come on Pansy Tlakula give PAC at least 50 000 votes in honour of Robert Sobukwe
Thanks for the imfo! Robert Sobukwe must have turned over in his grave! Any idea where they went? Did they join EFF?
Replacing the ANC with any other political party is just replacing one corrupt leadership with another . Unless we train leaders to become renounced in the likes of Robert Sobukwe , Thomas Sankara and the current day Nerendra Modi ( include a FEW ) more , we the people will be cheated again and again .
Robert Sobukwe and Zephania Mothopeng tried but never succeeded, Gatsha Buthelezi pointed the spear to the innocent, Holomisa could not stand it, Lekota and Shilowa could not sustain, did Malema think he can stand to ANC, this is the begining of the end for him. Never send a boy to do Men's job
ANC has worked so hard under due stress. But I'm worried about PAC the organisation of Robert Sobukwe is dying, there is no leader ever shine after him in PAC. Let me congratulate son of the ANC known as '' son of the people'' Julius Malema has done well as a 10 month old party. SA politics are so interesting.
I remain steadfast in my position that voting can never bring about any revolutionary change, unless you somehow con the system undetected; because voting is part of the neo-colonial labryinth system. Trying to beat the ANC with left, anti-capitalist politics in elections is like trying to bankrupt the Casino at the black jack table without cheating. This is precisly why the DA is the official oppostion, they are installed as a buffer to keep the farce going on. What the left doesn't understand is that the system has put strict resources in place to keep it divided so that they focus on fighting each other with petty things and not agree on moving forward with a united programme of action. While the left is busy, the ANC and its capitalist handlers have taken over the education system, and the media. What kids are being taught at school is the lie of an ANC that single-handedly defeated Apartheid with Mandela as the commanding knight. They don't know anything about the PAC, BCM, AZAPO and the stalwarts th ...
An insult to Robert Sobukwe I say "PAC embarrassed by poll performance
Can't help but wonder what Robert Sobukwe would say about the state of the PAC if he were still with us.
Robert Sobukwe is probably turning in his grave now "Election results an embarrassment to PAC
ANC is afraid of PAC than it is afraid of EFF & DA all together. ANC is afraid of Robert Sobukwe's legacy.
So we vote EFF and they say we got no respect for the fallen heroes (Nelson Mandela, Steve Biko,Robert Sobukwe, etc). Well you're all wrong it is for the great respect that i have for this fighters that i vote EFF, it is for the respect of the resilient spirit that they had that i vote EFF. Rest Assured when these heroes look down on us in heaven they're disappointed nge ANC. Long live the spirit of Nelson Mandela Long Live!!! Aluta Continua Ma EFF!

Its so good to hear or read that struggle heroes like the founder and first president of the PAC, Robert Sobukwe, and MK freedom fighter Solomon Mahlangu were honored at UNISA, "As the country celebrates 20 years of democracy UNISA believes that it is fitting tribute to rename the two buildings after the two struggle giants who left an indelible mark on the South African socio-political landscape," the university said in a statement. The Vista building will be named after Sobukwe and the Vudec building after Solomon Mahlangu.
When will People accept that Democracy was not Brought by ANC, it was part of the MDM, people Like Robert Sobukwe (who is not celebrated now, the Apartheid Gov. Feared Him more than Any leader in the continent) , Trevor Huddlestone, Desmond Tutu, Steve Biko , Hellen Zille (1st journalist who reported about Biko's death ) to name but few, organisations like SACC, UDF, Azapo, PAC, AAM nd sports bodies n Artists, pushed for sanctions against apartheid, ANC was part of these drives to bring apartheid down. Azapo's Army, Azanla and PAC's army, APLA were the first to take arm struggle against Apartheid government. South Africans u must read n Know yr History, dnt be indoctrinated, as it will destroy yr thinking ability , Amandla

If you are travelling along this direction, please take note: on the corner of Borchard's quarry and Robert Sobukwe Roads in Bishop Lavis, I was just informed by a beggar of two colored males (smash n grab) loitering checking out cars standing on the robot. So please remove all valuables from your seats and stay off your cellular phones, you might just become the next victim.
Freedom was not Free Ethekwini municipality really shows where its heart lies. This afternoon, at the end of the freeway which enters Dadoo street I noticed a huge, beautiful board with pics of the great Chris Hani, Robert Sobukwe, Rick Turner and one other. No Dr Goonam or Dr Monty Naicker or Prof Fatima Meer or Attorney Ismail Meer or Ahmed Timol. No South African Indians... I suppose this is an electoral strategy?
Lets go out there and vote against DA. Apartheid Oppression. Brutality. Satanism. phecelezi ngababulali aba bantu base Africa lets no go back. Lets not apply ourselves to Civil war. Think of Robert Sobukwe. the great Chief Albert Luthuli. Oliver Tambo. Chris Hani. Steve BikoMutupeng. The Sharpville Massacre. Soweto Uprising. King Hintsa King Shaka. We come a long way ma-Afrika

I voted to cherish the spirit of the fallen heros and heroines, who are not even counted in our own societies! I voted to the spirit of Robert Sobukwe, Steve Biko, and other many whites who fought for our freedom. This vote was for South Africans who want prosperity, no corruption and the respect of the presidency!
Robert Sobukwe, Steve Biko, Joe Slovo & Nelson Mandela only saw an X as a means to an end. Touch someone's life in ur community.

Robert Sobukwe is my hero. A great soul.
I REFUSE TO VOTE & SANCTION THIS CAPITALIST demockery ILLUSION. In the name of Autshumoa (aka Herry Die Strandloper), Krotoa, Gogasoa, Makana, Chaka Zulu, Bambatha, Robert Sobukwe, Steve Biko, Coline Williams, Ashley Kriel, Anton Fransch and millions more who died for our ongoing journey to freedom. God and Our Ancestors help the blind to see. Big business decides the EMPTY PROMISES politicians are unable to keep.
Now its time to vote for the future. I dedicate my vote for EFF to Steve Biko, Robert Sobukwe, Nelson Nandela and other freedom fighters.
Robert Sobukwe, Helen Suzman, Steve Biko also fought against apartheid. they were not ANC
I've just voted for Tatane, marikana workers,Mothluthlung residents but most important I've voted for the vision of Robert Sobukwe, Chris Hani,Tsietsi Mashinini,Thomas Sankara,Bantu Biko ensuring a brighter future for my Son Aluta Mtshweni and my daughter Azania Mtshweni. I've voted EFF

He was in the presence of bo Robert Sobukwe, so I wanna knw😐
what youve just said about the PAC&it's leaders is heartbreaking given contributions by Robert Sobukwe&others to our freedom!
I wonder if this is what the likes of Steve Biko and Robert Sobukwe had wanted to achieve.. I'm sure they are turning in their graves.
Pity ANC teaches black to hate whites, sounds like Robert Mugabe not Robert Sobukwe and Nelson Mandela. The UDF spirit = division
Ka laboraro ima vote for the 1st time. Will be honoring son of the soil Robert Sobukwe,as well as Steve Biko.
Robert Sobukwe's inaugural speech in April 1959? Pure leadership, resilience and wisdom. That African spirit needs to come back
No good story to tell here. After 20 years of democracy? Robert Sobukwe, Steve Biko, e.t.c must be turning in their graves.
Mangosuthu Buthelezi (born 27 August 1928) is a South African politician who founded the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) in 1975 and the former prime minister of the KwaZulu bantustan. His praise name is Shenge. In 1964 he played King Cetshwayo kaMpande (his own maternal great-grandfather) in the film Zulu.Mangosuthu (born Gatsha) was born on 27 August 1928, in Mahlabathini, KwaZulu, to Chief Mathole Buthelezi and Princess Magogo kaDinuzulu, the sister of King Solomon kaDinuzulu. He was educated at Impumalanga Primary School, Mahashini, Nongoma from 1933 to 1943, then at Adams College, Amanzimtoti from 1944 to 1947.Mangosuthu studied at the University of Fort Hare from 1948 to 1950, where he joined the African National Congress Youth League and came into contact with Robert Mugabe and Robert Sobukwe. He was expelled from the university after student boycotts. He later completed his degree at the University of Natal.EXPELLED IS THE KEY CONVERSATION
I vote because they are a lot of Black and white people dead. I vote because Steve Biko and Robert Sobukwe are...

Well, here is my view about Musi Maimane: I do not believe that Musi is faking Obama, I think He is inspired by Obama's leadership style. just like Steve Biko was inspired by Robert Sobukwe, and Patrice Lumumba who inspired by Kwame Nkrumah. leaders are inspired by other leaders and in a modern society like ours, it is good to have young leaders like Musi, and we should build a society that embraces such leaders.
'freedom without land and without economic freedom is no freedom Mayibuye I'Afrika - Robert Sobukwe'
Robert Sobukwe.. will never get the recognition he deserves but Mandela will
The pain our farthers went through cant be measured! Long live the Sprit of Robert Sobukwe, Harry Gwala, Steve Biko ect... ngoba umuntu omnyama uyaxola okwenziwa kobaba kubuhlungu ayikancane!!! Truth must told most of abelungu they still dont like us!!!
ANC expiry date 7 May 2014 The ANC thinks it owns South African Struggle... Those that died fighting are forgotten, only cowards who ran to exile are rewarded. Those with different ideology are chopped, ask Mzwakhe Mbuli and Julius Malema The ANC wont name South Africa, Azania cause its a named used mostly by PAC. Hector Peterson was not a member of the ANC, his monument is dictated by the ANC Steve Biko was not an ANC but his legacy is stolen by the ANC Robert Sobukwe was PAC, ANC even changed the day he championed from Sharpeville Day to Freedom Day and last year it was moved from Sharpeville to Soweto The ANC is afraid of school kids, thats why the stopped the FNB students debate. ANC told us to stop buying Citizen, cause it reports too much about Nkandla. They say we must stop banking with FNB and today they say we must not use MTN cause DA wanted to advertize on MTN airtimes. Any organisation or government that distances itself from Bible is a ticking-timed bomb. Bible says forgive 7X70 times, but Ma ...
As we face another day ahead remember that Kwame Nkrumah loves you, Robert Sobukwe thinks of you, Steve Biko believes in you, that Chris Hani will protect you, Oliver Tambo has been guiding you and Nelson Mandela said be very careful of Jacob Zuma, he will corrupt you. Morning Native people.
...and the 48hour pothole repair time is incorrect & misleading, I know one in Robert Sobukwe Road, more than a year!
Confidence is a great virtue; it is a vital tip of becoming successful. It is decipherable that one of the things that make the Black race lag behind is the lack of confident leaders that can stand tall and take on the world for real. The world is a game; every country, continent and race is trying to outsmart the other. The Black race is only struggling, not to win and outsmart but to integrate; hence, blacks work for other races more than their race. There is no gainsaying the fact that slavery and colonialism eroded the genuine confidence in blacks but it is within such carnage that the MESSIAH; Marcus Mosiah Gravey rose. It is within the carnage that Frederick Douglas rose. It is within the Caucasian inhumanity that Steve Bantu Biko, Walter Sisulu, Japhta Masemola, Robert Sobukwe and Nelson Madela stood tall and led. It is within the dehumanisation that Nkrumah, Sankara, Lumumba, Samora MacHel, Nyerere fought vehemently. We need the courage and confidence. Many who claim to be agents of change will qu ...
Happy Freedom day SA, I salute the spirit of Govan Mbeki, Raymond Mhlaba, Robert Sobukwe, Steven Bantu Biko, Chris Hani and all other hereos
Just thinking: How soon have people from the East Cape forgotten the role General Holomisa played in giving sanctuary to liberation army guerrilas and the liberation of the Transkei and Ciskei from the Bantustan regimes. How soon the people have they forgotten how Terror Lekota, Aubrey Mokoena and Trevor Manuel under the leadership of Mrs Albertina Sisulu, Archie Gumede, Rev Alan Boesak in the building the UDF and the Release Mandela Campaign. How soon! How soon have the people forgotten the role of the Black Consciousness Movement conscientized the oppressed about their plight. How soon, leaders like Harry Gwala, the Lion of the Midlands played in defending the people of KZN against reactionary repression. How soon has Winnie Mandela been relegated to the fog of history. How soon has the Pan Africanist Movement's Robert Sobukwe has been forgotten! Remember all these gallant revolutionaries and the many who have not been mentioned in name as you vote for whatever party of your choice in two weeks' time.
You can imagine Oliver Tambo,Walter Sisulu,Chris Hani,AP Mda,Anton Lembede,Nelson Mandela,Robert Sobukwe dedicated their life to our democracy,all died because of efforts devoted to our democracy. Now we have Ronnie Kasrils and his spoiling votes...
Rumour has it that when Steve Biko walked into a room and found Robert Sobukwe he exclaimed; "God is here."
Robert Mugabe represents the last of a dying breed.. A breed that brought us the likes of Thomas Sankara, Julius Nyerere, Patrice Lumumba, Stephen Bantu Biko, Robert Sobukwe, Amilcar Cabral, Chris Hani and many more.. Most of you will only realise 20years from now the depth of Mugabe's contribution to the survival and progression of Zimbabwe and Africa at large..
Propaganda and emotional blackmail by a bunch emotional black males must stop now...SACP has an entire campaign that read Do it for Mandela VOTE ANC, Do it for Chris Hani VOTE ANC...whats with the guilt trip! My love and memory of Mandela, Chris Hani, Robert Sobukwe, Biko and the likes propels me to NOT VOTE for this version of the ANC...the principles and tactics are shameful...the ANC has threatened the financial security of the society of people living off social grants, saying if they "vote for the opposition they are stealing from government"...desperate measures that must be seen as such as we chant down fear being spread through bullying tactics...
Traffic lights at Robert Sobukwe and 35th Ave not working but Traffic Officers are on duty!!!PLEASE drive safely!
Stellenbosch Arterial and Robert Sobukwe (old Modderdam Rd )intersection nightmare, traffic lights out , 4 way crossing gridlock , no traffic officers! 40 mins later and still have not passed through it
Politics is like evangelism,u have to keep on preaching the word converting the sinners and fighting for the betterment of humanity through every season.U have 2 spend 40 days in the wilderness and travel on a dry throat and with no food until you reach the land of canaan.Steve Biko,Robert Sobukwe,Nelson Mandela and Chris Hani are classical examples unlike this opportunitic fly by night politicians who only want to reach parliament.help me to fight this demon
This day has been hijacked by the ANC, even though our history point to only one man, called "the Man of Africa, Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe" All South Africans today MUST celebrate Robert Sobukwe's bravary to challenge the brutal & inhuman government of the white people, when he pioneered a powerful resistance strategy that saw about 200 men marched to Orlando police station to be arrested for refusing to carry a stupid pass. Mind you all ANC members including all its leaders used to carry stupid pass wherever they used to go, but it was Sobukwe on this day, Monday 21, March 1960, who strategically brought the apartheid government to its knees. His idea was to make the unjust police system dysfunctional and that will see the Bantu Commissioner's court where a magistrate usually disposed of all pass cases in few minutes. The truth is Mandela, Thambo and many other ANC leaders used to carry their passes wherever they used to go, even when going to the shebeens at night, but it was this African man who defied ...
Remember the past and celebrate the future on Human Rights Day Human Rights Day (21 March) was officially declared a public holiday in 1994 following the inauguration of former president Nelson Mandela. This national day-off is both a stark reminder of the tragic Sharpeville massacre and a celebration of South Africa’s unique constitution, which gives equal rights to all. The Sharpeville Massacre On Monday, 21 March in 1960 police opened fire, without order, on a crowd that had gathered at the Sharpeville station to protest pass laws, stipulations that required Africans to carry books and produce them for law enforcement officials on request; 69 unarmed people were killed and another 180 were injured. While little is known about what really sparked this tragic event, Joe Tlholoe, one of the nation's most acclaimed journalists who was a high school pupil at the time, recalled that the Pan Africanist Congress – under the leadership of Robert Sobukwe – appealed to all African men to take a stand agains ...
(Food for thought a speech by the fearless n most prominent leader Afrika has ever seen Robert Sobukwe at Fort Hare October 1949.its worth a read.) Prof. Dent, Ladies and Gentlemen, I intend to follow in my opening remarks the conventional pattern. And for that reason I will give a very brief review of our doings within the College this year. We saw at the beginning of the year the implementation of the Students’ Constitution, whereby six members of the S.R.C. [Students’ Representative Council were elected by secret ballot at a mass-meeting of the students and whereby also certain powers were delegated to the Council. Of that arrangement the worst I can say is that it seems to be working well. We witnessed also at the beginning of the year the promotion of Prof. Dent to the position of Principal of the S.A.N.C. [South African Native College. He was succeeding a man who was highly esteemed, Dr. Kerr. But I do not think we lament the change, for we are concerned not with personalities, but with policies ...
This is a quote from Shenge's speech in parliament . "I am from a generation of leaders like Oliver Tambo, Walter Sisulu, Nelson Mandela, Govan Mbeki, Rowley Arenstein, Alphaeus Zulu, Zami Conco, Robert Sobukwe, Steve Biko and Joe Mathews. Only Mr Andrew Mlangeni and I survive from that generation." Kodwa usafuna ukuvotelwa. Ihlazo...
If you give your life to Jesus 4 God'will 2 be done in your life also preparing 4 eternal life and if you vote ANC you are defending the struggle of our late heroes &heroins likes of Solomon Mahlangu,Chris Hani,Robert Sobukwe,Henry Zondo,Sbu Mkhize,Steve Biko,JL Dube, not democracy .(democracy =demo +crazy,anti Christ-ideology of imperialist)
Afrika my begining afrika my ending,mayibuye iAfrika,I was just thinking about how much we have deviated from the values and principles of our founding fathers like dr John Dube,Robert Sobukwe,Nelson Mandela,Steve Biko,Govern Mbeki,Chris Hani,Oliver Tambo,Walter Sisulu and others,the current crop of leaders put self enrichment and greed over selflessness and the will to serve the people,is this what the struggle was for?to eliminate white on black opression and usher in black on black opression,just thinking out loud.
Ours cannot be reduced into a democracy in which the only time leaders drop knowledge was when the books fell from their school bags.During Nelson Mandela's memorial Joyce Banda summed up leadership as the ability in which you fall in love with people and they fall in love with you in return.From Steve Biko Black conscioussness,Robert Sobukwe's pan africanism,Leopold Sengor's negritude,Nkwame Nkruma's belief Africa be self reliant,Julius Nyerere ujamaa,Kenneth Kaunda notion of humanism and Nelson Mandela's reconciliation over recrimination mother Africa has always provided good leaders.As the elections draw near we need leadership which does not play populist card which divide society,bring fear,resentment and prejudice.We need leaders who will show us not to look back in anger but instead look forward in hope.Nations are not build by a politician or single person but by millions of people signing up to a single vision and living out a set of common values.We need leadership which wears it heart on its sl ...
that is wat Steve Biko, Marcus Garvey, Robert Sobukwe, John H Clarke etc, we trying to get through to us as black people.
i would like wat heppend here could also heppen at my home town. KWAKWATSI. Dis is wat we call radical change. The criteria which has to be done in order to hourner all the people who fought 4 freedom like the late Matikoane Seroto, Chris Hani, Oliver Tambo, Robert Sobukwe, Tata Madiba n so on
The teachings of Mandela and Luther king are nothing but dangerous to the black world,teachings of liberal.the teachings that we should preach peace while our race is brutally butchered,these teachins speak of forgiveness before justice,it speaks about kissing the white men's bum,sacrificing and compromising your Afrikan values so that the invader may be accomodated in the name of some illusional peace and rainbow,it says blackman remain poor while the white remains rich in the name of peace. we should dream of one day being intergrated to white society and white values.the teachings of Mandela and King have created dangerous blacks such as Lindiwe Mazibuko,Khaya Dlanga and Mmusi Mamaine. Our young people should be taught about the great Marcus Garvey Steve Biko and Robert Sobukwe.the teachings of these leaders would emanicipate the Afrikan mind from mental slavery and Eurocentric thinking,the teachings of these great son's would force us to make our stand and take our place in this world infested by whit ...
Those of you that will be turning 18 before the 7th of May 2014, please do go to your nearest voting station and register to vote. It doesn't take much time to register. Play your part in making South Africa a better country by owning and using your democratic right. Vote for a political party of your choice and remember your vote is your secret. Do not neglect this call guys, our freedom didn't fall from a tree, blood spilled and lives were lost, for me and you to be able to vote. Remember, the likes of Ruth First, Chris Hani, Solomon Mahlangu, Mbuyisa Makhubu, Hector Peterson, OR Tambo, Albert Luthuli, Robert Sobukwe, the PAC boys that were killed by the apartheid SADF in Norwood (Mthatha), Cradock Four and many freedom fighters who died because of their stand for truth that entailed a right for a black person to vote. They died violently and some because of illnesses that were caused by involvement in the struggle. Go and register to vote for what what you believe in.
If Steve Biko, Robert Sobukwe and Chris Hani were still alive, who would be your president and deputy president?
ANC opposition parties are making it so difficult for the people to choose any other party. Mamphele Ramphele had a great idea and she allowed personality it get in its way. Mosiwa Lekota is a disgruntled ANC member meaning his drive is to oppose the ANC and not to bring anything innovative and helpful to the table. Helen Zille talks about "service delivery for all" but Nomzamo and Khayelitsha don't inspire any confidence that this service delivery is indeed for all. Julius Malema is too radical and there is fear of political unrest if he was to become president. I must add though about Malema that I think he is talking about very important issues, Steve Biko talked about land distribution so did Robert Sobukwe and those are intellectual giants that are respected to this day, so don't think Malema is a stupid fool he's talking about real tangible issues that ANC is not dealing with as much as they ought to. My point in the end though is despite the validity of the issues Malema is tackling, he is too radi ...
We must know and always remember that we won't return the like of Robert Sobukwe, Tambo, Chris Hani,Joe Slovo,...
Accident: N2 Outbound on Robert Sobukwe, lane closure, no delays
XHOSA MEN I am a pan-Africanist through and through, and my feelings about African people in their entirety remain consistent. As pan-Africanists, we don't encourage divisions among the African family. To us,all Africans, be they Nigerian or Azanian, are the same. However, we cannot deny that divisions DO exist, both socio-economic class and ethnical divisions. Because of geo-politics, certain ethnic groups will have certain characteristics that differ from other tribal groups. Societal norms and traditions differ, hence Xhosa people, for example, believe in "ulwalukho" while Zulu people don't. I have interacted with and observed the different tribes in our country, and while there is more that unites us than there is what divides us, there are certain traits that are dominant in some cultures than others. What i've concluded is that Venda, Tsonga and Pedi women are generally more conservative than Xhosa women,who are rather outgoing and free-spirited. Regions also play a significant role. Soweto people a ...
Where is the PAC who is the president of the PAC oh may the soul of Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe rest in peace
Biko,Sankara,Malcolm X,Robert Sobukwe,Chris Hani, , contribute to how I understand the plight of Afrikans
One of the saddest new things I learned at Robben Island in early Jan, was the treatment of Robert Sobukwe, and the Sobukwe Clause.
Let me unmusk if not to demobilize the hallucination to those who perceive our capitalist education as free education and as PAYCO of Limpopo we regard this tendency as a brainwashed education and should be condemned. We cannot cherish an education that leave an African child running behind the van zyls and van der Merwe saying, "EK SOEK DIE WERK" but we demand an education that shall empower the African masses as the bosses as the future dominanents of our economy. As PAYCO, we also condem the continuation of maths literacy and life orientation as part of curriculum of our basic education. PAYCO wants the the basic education to include atleast two basic mining and agriculture subjects as part of curriculum to ensure that we are moving towards economic emancipation of African society. In South Africa will continue to teach our learners about the characteristis of a cochroach while a learner in America is taught about distinguishing a platnum on our our African soil. It is a nacked secret that Agriculture ...

Author: Reagile Rey Makwela Title: African Politics As African individuals. We have been brainwashed by the monarch-like government that starves us of transparency and honesty, Stringing us along like political puppets used as an entourage. Hiding the corrupt and unjust truths of bribery, deceit and capitalism. We were woken up from an African Dream by white oppressors who lust fully raped our mothers and impregnated them with hatred. They, who now call us kaffirs and niggaz, shamed us for being fatherless not caring about our heritage, culture or tradition for the sake of their over grown testosterone. They now live lavish lives while we still live in peasant conditioned dungeons and feast on each other's blood for survival. Trusting, we poured out our blood to place in power those who seemed to have our best interests at heart. Unfortunately, they too have been poisoned by illuminati replicas of deceit and hypocrisy. Hypnotizing us like the white colonizers who fooled our forefathers into believing a pi ...

If u talk about LAND they'll KILL YOU,They killed ROBERT SOBUKWE! But that won't change my MIND,I WANT MY LAND BACK!!
Who's that ? Buthelezi studied History and Bantu administration at the Fort Hare University in 1948. It was at this University that his short-lived involvement in liberation politics developed. Here he met Professor Z K Mathews (who was to make an impression on him) and through him, Robert Sobukwe, African National Congress (ANC) Youth League leader, and other African nationalist liberation leaders such as Robert Mugabe. In 1950 he took part in the student protests against the visit of Governor General G Brand Van Zyl
