Prof Robert Mangaliso Sokukhwe was the most feared leader by the white apartheid regime He was the fearless leader of the Pan Africanist Congress in South Africa A party whose motto was Afrika for Afrikans at home and abroad I was only four years old when he was arrested and sent to Robben Ireland It s so funny that as I grew up I always observed that when somebody mentioned his name other people would caution that somebody to keep uiet Shhhh As I started schooling in history classes I would hear some of my classmates mentioning in silence that there are black people one does not have to mention their names and the most feared one by the whites was Robert Sobukwe At the time I was not so sure why but as I grew up and entering higher primary school I met mature boys who understand the history of the Pan Africanist Congress and Robert Sobukhwe They said he was capable of organising thousands and thousands of local Township black people to march and occupy cities demanding freedom The whites and apartheid government would be so scared that they negotiate nicely and promise concertions and when people have gone home the apartheid police would come and arrest him I listened attentively but secretly so that our teachers cannot hear or figure out what we were talking about One would also be reported by the teachers to the authorities if RSobukwe s name is heaared mentioned by studentsDuring Sharpville Massacre of the 1960s I heard that he was the one who organised the black people to burn their Passes or IDs and demanded to hand themselves over to be arrested by the police The police came in large numbers and fired live ammunition that killed and injured many black people And he was later arrested I heard that he was the first long term prisoner in Robben Irelandand he was placed in solitary confinement at a secluded place in that notorious prison The other later prisoners like Nelson Mandela would not see him for years and yearsWhen I was 20 years in 1976 I heard the whole story about him because it was now time for Soweto student apprising all over the black Townships of South Africa We all sang songs about him including MAYIBUYE I AFRIKA COME BACK AFRIKA They must give back our Africa otherwise we will take it by force I know that the writer of this book was one of his best friends and therefore I would recommend anyone to buy and read this book and find out for yourself why he was not made popular then and even now by the ANC government

Let me start by saying I am not a huge fan of biographiesi much prefer auto biographies I feel auto biographies are a bit Personal Anyway I approached this book with a hint of cynicism thinking Pogrund had just written it merely as an academic exercisebut boy was i wrong This book conjured a lot of emotions in my usually immovable heart mainly awe envy and something akin to sympathy but not sympathy I m yet to be able to label that emotion This man was a legend albeit a lonely legend let me hasten to add that I had the privilege of going to Robben Island and saw where the diabolic apartheid government had decided to hide him Standing there looking at the dingy place where he was kept hidden I was attacked by a sense of shame and this strange sensation that made my eyes want to release that salty fluid that is a cause for embarrassment for a strong man such as myselfThis man was a genius he is an unsung hero in not only South African but African liberation This is a man who was a pioneer in Pan AfricanismThe book is a very detailed look at the philosophies and decisions of a genius Pogrund out did himself he paid attention to detail and the book is very well researchedNot to be read by the overly emotional
