Below are excerpts from the interview which can be seen here:
“I don’t know why they hated us - I just know that they did and very much.”
They still do actually (hate you, that is, and no, they don’t need a reason to, they just do.).
“…we called ourselves “street soldiers”.
If there were police coming into the township to raid homes and arrest people who were believed to be “terrorists” by the security forces, we did all we could to protect them.
We hid them in our homes and kept the police away by blockading the streets with burning tyres or large rocks.”
We can’t talk enough about our active resistance to genocidal oppression. We must counteract the belief that all we did was march, pray and talk, when we were not selling each other out, that is. Such an erroneous belief is propagated by the mainstream media and so-called liberals.
“Life was worse for those of us who were seen to be activists; the police would come to your home in the dead of night, kick down your door and drag you away kicking and screaming.
Many people disappeared without a trace during those home raids.
If you were lucky you would only get tortured and dumped somewhere; if you were lucky they would let you live.”
“I can’t even talk about that time without still feeling angry, without feeling pain.”
"The same people that told us to give up school and take to the streets for their release from prison and our liberation as black people came into power and then forgot about us..
They had nothing for us. I felt used, I still feel used.
There can be no doubt about the fact that not only has the Mandela settlement with the [FW] de Klerk regime compromised the poor black people it has also impoverished them even more.”
… “the sunset clause”… guaranteed the ill-gotten wealth of whites…
"The only thing blacks got was the vote after every four years and the spattering of a few black elite [politicians]…”
“Today I work as a mechanic, I have no formal qualification; everything I know about fixing taxis I taught myself (those who love to wax lyrical on the ‘laziness’ of black people need to go choke) - this government of black people does not care about me, it has no time for me.
Yes we are free to go where we want to without fear but we are still not free, not in economic terms.”
"Those who died for this freedom sadly died for nothing in my view.”
