The plan to overthrow then Apartheid government began as early as 1963 when Zephaniah “The Lion of Azania” Mothopeng was in the notorious Robben Island prison following his arrest during the PAC led Anti-Pass Campaign on the 21st March 1960. He was a member of the PAC National Leadership at the time.
1ST MAYIHLOME ANNUAL LECTURE HELD AND DELIVERED ON THE 30TH MAY 2009 AT HOTEL 224, CITY OF TSHWANE, ARCADIA
Mayihlome evokes memories of one’s engagement in the on-going societal struggles to assert their rights and class position. I don’t forget that in our days, back then as students, we had used Mayihlome as an effective tool to communicate our Africanist views. We have also done the same in the youth movement. So Mayihlome, whatever our different interpretations may be, has for some time been an associate of the young, dynamic Africanists.
Mayihlome team takes this opportunity to introduce this informative, educative and engaging news publication. This publication will focus on issues affecting the poor working class African masses.
