Quotes

"COSATU calls on the person, and those who supported his anti-revolutionary proposal, to publicly apologise and withdraw the statement, out of respect for those who were the victims of brutal killings by a racist AWB leader and those who are disabled from those racial attacks from the same white racist leader" Cosatu's North West Provincial Secretary Solly Phetoe said
'I miss him already,' Asanda Ngono, Mkefile's best friend said. "I do not know why it was time that he had to go."
"His life is a true example of the consistency between proletarian internationalism and healthy nationalism. He spurned racialism in all its forms whether expressed in white arrogance or black chauvinism. Never hiding his dedication to the cause of communism, he also became a respected leader of the African National Congress because of his great contribution to the work of that organisation over many decades."
"But all women, too many women in South Africa and too many children [are at risk]... we have a long way to go."
