NelsonMandela

At his arrest in August 1962, Nelson Mandela was not only a member of the then underground South African Communist Party, but was also a member of our Party’s Central Committee. To us as South African communists, Cde Mandela shall forever symbolise the monumental contribution of the SACP in our liberation struggle. The contribution of communists in the struggle to achieve the South African freedom has very few parallels in the history of our country. After his release from prison in 1990, Cde Madiba became a great and close friend of the communists till his last days. – See more at: http://www.sacp.org.za/main.php?ID=4151#sthash.ECztJvMz.dpuf

The South African Communist Party website describes Nelson Mandela as  “a true revolutionary.”

If they are lying, they need to be exposed as liars.

If what they say is true, the need is to know when Mandela quit the SACP – if he did.
