Isiqalo esisha

Kwakunzima ukufunda imicabango kaNelson Mandela. Wayengumngane ofudumele futhi ohloniphekile edilini lesidlo endaweni yakhe yokuhlala, uMahlamba 'Ndlofu (Ukuvuka kweNew Era), owayenguLibertas owayengomunye wabafazi baseNdunankulu nabaPresidenti ngesikhathi esisodwa. Uphinde wamema abafazi nabafelokazi abaholi bezinhlangano zokukhulula, phakathi kwabo owayenguMfelokazi we-African National Congress ongumfelokazi u-Oliver Tambo, u-Adelaide no-Albertina Sisulu, owayengumengameli we-ANC uWalter Sisulu.

La maqembu amabili, i-Nationalists emhlophe kanye nabafazi abamnyama nabamhlophe nabafelokazi babaholi benkululeko, babengakaze bahlangane ngaphambili. Babehlezi emaqenjini ahlukene lapho uMongameli Mandela ehambela ngokubingelela okuthokozile, "Nansi abesifazane abadumile". Kwabe sekukhonjelwa u-Elise Botha, umkaMengameli wangaphambili uPieter W Botha, noMagda Diederichs, ongumfelokazi kaMengameli wangaphambili uNico Diederichs.

Ngaso sonke isikhathi wayenamaqembu amabili ahlangana ndawonye, ​​ngenkathi ehlanganyela amnandi kanye ne-banter enenhliziyo enabo bonke. Kwakungekho ukusikisela ukuthi wayedlala indima. Akukhona kuye amazwi angenakwenzeka kaVorster ngemuva kokumemezela esidlangalaleni uMongameli waseMalawi uHastings Banda kanye nomphathi wakhe ophethe isikhulu uCecilia Kadzamira, edilini likahulumeni eGoli. UV Vorster wayechazele abalandeli bakhe bezombusazwe ukuthi uhlezi eduze komfazi omnyama emsebenzini "njengesibopho sokuthanda izwe ngenxa yeNingizimu Afrika".

Khothelela, Kodwa Ungakhohlwa!

Isizathu sokuthi uMongameli Mandela wanikela ngokuzijabulisa abesifazane - futhi kwakuyinto yakhe siqu - kwaba yinselele ezweni. Uthi "kuyindlela ewusizo yokukhohlwa okwedlule" futhi, nakwezinye, imizamo yakhe eqinile yokwenza ukubuyisana phakathi kwabo bonke abantu baseNingizimu Afrika. Isitatimende sakhe, ngokubambisana kwakhe ngokuqinile neKhomishini yeQiniso neKubuyisana eyasungulwa ukuze kugxilwe ukukhanya okunamandla ekuhlaselweni kwezinsuku zobandlululo kanye nengxenye yenkathi yokubandlululwa kwesibandlululo, kubonakala kungenangqondo.

Kodwa kwakusobala ukuthi wayegxila ezimweni zengqondo kanye nokubandlulula abantu abaye bakwamukela ngokushesha futhi ukwesaba okwenzelwe izinqubomgomo zobandlululo.

Ufuna ama-Afrikaner ezinzima ezinhlanganweni ze-Conservative ne-Nationalist kanye nezinhlangano eziphikisayo ezifana ne-Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (i-Ultra Right Wing Afrikaner Resistance Movement enezibonakaliso zayo zamaNazi) ukuze ziqaphele ukuthi azidingeki ukwesaba ngentando yeningi entsha nokuthi iNingizimu I-Afrika ingakunqoba ubuhlanga bayo futhi ibhekane nekusasa njengesizwe esisodwa. Kodwa akazange avunyelwe ukudibanisa ukubuyisana nomsebenzi weKhomishini yeQiniso.

UNkk Ntsiki Biko, ongumfelokazi wezishoshovu uSteve Biko owahlukunyezwa futhi wabulawa yiPhoyisa lokuPhepha ngesikhathi ebuza imibuzo, wayengamvumeli. Wathi, "Singaxolela, yebo, kodwa singakhohlwa!"

Ukubuyisana Kwabo Bonke AbaseNingizimu Afrika

Futhi amaqembu aphumelele. Abesifazane besidlo sasemini babethandwa nguye, njengoMnu Verwoerd. UMongameli uMandela wayesebenza kanzima ekubuyisaneni. Njengoba ebesebenza ngokuyinhloko ekwenzeni izinguquko ezingavamile ezingxoxweni kanye ne-Afrikaner National Party, uye wazama ukubeka abantu abamnyama amandla ngenxa yokuntuleka kwentuthuko ohlelweni Lokuvuselela Nokuthuthukiswa kanye nezinye izinhlelo zokuphakamisa umphakathi.

Naye behlisa ukwesaba kwabamhlophe, ikakhulukazi amaphiko afanele, abaningi babo ababezivimbela emakhaya abo ngezibhamu zabo ngesikhathi esilungele ukhetho. Babesaba ukuthi abantu abamnyama bayakuvukela ngokuphindiselela iminyaka engu-48 yokushushiswa nokucindezelwa kabuhlungu okwenziwe ngabo.

Kulo mcimbi, ukuthula kwabusa - ngakho yonke indawo ukuthi abaningi babiza ukhetho ngempumelelo yokuthula. UMengameli Mandela ubonakala ewulinqobe lolo daba naphezu kokuqhuma okuqhubekayo kobudlova buhlanga okwenzeka kusukela ngaleso sikhathi. Wayeyindoda engavamile enesineke esikhulu kanye namandla amakhulu okubekezela. Futhi abantu ababengeke bakwazi ukuma abamnyama, empeleni, babazonda, manje babheke kuye ngenhlonipho nangothando.
