What's Happening In Your World
For years, Nelson Mandela has denied any association with the Communist Party.  But there were some who felt that this wasn’t true.   The white-dominated apartheid government claimed that Mandela was a Communist for years, and many felt that this was propaganda designed to smear his reputation.  Mandela spoke to the matter during his trial in 1963, saying that this was just an effort to get him behind bars. A new book is now stating that Mandela actually was a member of the Communist Party.  This revelation, were it to be true, would be shocking, since the Nobel Prize winner has denied it for years.  Mandela won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 and was part of an armed resistance movement within the ANC that did partner with the Communists. The research has been done by British historian Professor Stephen Ellis, who claims that Mandela held senior rank in the South African Communist Party (SACP) during the early part of his career as an activist.   Ellis claims that Mandela joined the party to enlist the help of Communist superpowers to support the ANC’s campaign of armed resistance. As evidence of Mr Mandela’s Communist party membership, Prof Ellis cites minutes from a secret 1982 SACP meeting, discovered in a collection of private papers at the University of Cape Town, in which a veteran former party member, the late John Pule Motshabi, talks about how Mr Mandela was a party member some two decades before. In the minutes, Mr Motshabi, is quoted as saying: “There was an accusation that we opposed allowing Nelson [Mandela] and Walter (Sisulu, a fellow activist) into the Family (a code word for the party) … we were not informed because this was arising after the 1950 campaigns (a series of street protests). The recruitment of the two came after.” While other SACP members have previously confirmed Mr Mandela’s party membership, many of their testimonies were given under duress in police interviews, where they might have sought to implicate him. However, the minutes from the 1982 SACP meeting, said Prof Ellis, offered more reliable proof. “This is written in a closed party meeting so nobody is trying to impress or mislead the public,” he said.

It truly can also be beneficial on the digestive application given that it breaks down the proteins, fats and minerals through the whatever you consume.

  2. This is very interesting. I will need to look further into this.Writing a new book that calls Nelson Mandela a communist is irrelevant now. Apartheid officially ended around 1994. There is no way his reputation can be ruined by old assumptions. I don't think this book would cause Mandela to lose his Nobel Peace Prize.

    • Prime example of trying to put an influential brother down, smh

    • When will this ever stop? (I got nothing but love for Nelson Mand…lol) Yes Mand not Mandela. Too bad the new black generation in America, may have a hard time recognizing influential brothers and sisters who contributed to fighting for our civil rights; here, Africa and Caribbean. Smh stuff like this tricks people who are not aware of the government's agenda to destroy the image of influential brothers and sisters during this time. Well I guess you can say the same thing is sort of happening today. Look at what the media tells us are influential brothas and sistahs??? What a lost generation; self-hatred, loss of identity, blacks being envious of other blacks trying to make a better life for themselves. (NOT ALL BLACKS, JUST SOME)

    • Many young people of this generation have not been properly guided. The Bible says to train a child in the way he/she should go and when they are older, they will not depart from it. It starts with setting a positive example for these children.

    • …encourage education, self-respect, and wanting more for themselves

    • Speak the truth sistah!! Amen
