The Sabotage Campaign - The O'Malley Archives "It was just the beginning" By Joe Slovo The sabotage campaign began when we launched Umkhonto, and continued until 1963. This period from 1961 to 1963, was a particular phase in the life of Umkhonto. This was because it was the first time that the liberation movement began to use violent methods. It is also a particular phase because after this, Umkhonto changed its approach to the armed struggle.

South African English is lekker! South Africans speak English, but that doesn't mean you'll always understand us. Our "robots" are nothing like R2D2, "just now" doesn't mean immediately, and "babbelas" is not a shampoo.

Some words come from colonial-era Malay and Portuguese immigrants. Nelson Mandela Funeral Memorial On Sunday 15 December 2013 Nelson Mandela’s funeral was held in his childhood village of Qunu, South Africa. To commemorate the occasion, this visual reflects on a man who, despite tremendous adversity, played an incomparably important role in the struggle for freedom and human dignity worldwide. Mandela’s so-called “walk to freedom” was never an easy one. It spanned most of his 95-year life, during which he was simultaneously vilified and exalted. Although Mandela’s 27 years in prison are in no way forgotten, we often fail to remember that during those decades, and for many years after, Mandela was also seen by members of the international community as a radical. Throughout the anti-apartheid movement, Mandela never failed to see himself as part of a larger movement, one that encompassed the right to self-determination everywhere.
