ANC BOKONE BOPHIRIMA THANKS THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT FOR DONATING LAND TO MKMVA VETERANS

The African National Congress (ANC) in Bokone Bophirima expresses gratitude to Bokone Bophirima Provincial Government for facilitating a donation of a farm to a co-operative of Luthuli Detachment members of the Umkhonto we Sizwe Military Veterans Association (MKMVA).

On Monday morning [15 May 2017] a farm in Jagersfontein near Zeerust was handed over by Ngaka Modiri Molema District Municipality to the 14 remaining Bokone Bophirima members of the MKMVA's Luthuli Detachment. The farm belongs to the municipality and these veterans of our struggle will utilize it to produce food, earn a living for their households and improve their socio-economic condition.

The Luthuli Detachment is the first group of freedom fighters to leave the country to join the ANC's Umkhonto we Sizwe military wing in exile in different African countries and were trained in those countries, including in the Soviet Union. It is an open secret that many of them lost out on an opportunity to study and pursue their preferred careers because they selflessly prioritized liberating South Africa and giving us the freedom and democracy we are enjoying today.

These 14 Luthuli Detachment members have formed a co-operative that will breed goats and chickens, grow vegetables and other crops and also produce bottled spring water. Beneficiaries of this essential programme will be the 14 members of Luthuli Detachment and their spouses and families. This number is down from the initial 28 Luthuli Detachment members who returned from exile.

The ANC in Bokone Bophirima commends this revolutionary milestone and applauds the progressive ANC-led provincial government and Ngaka Modiri Molema District Municipality for not turning their back on the selfless fighters who left their homes at a tender age to join the struggle to liberate an African child from the bondages of apartheid and colonialism. We cannot continue with our usual daily business while some of them struggle to make ends meet.

Provincial Chairperson of ANC Veteran's League in Bokone Bophirima, Cde Tax Rantao, expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the ANC-led government. In an emotionally and touching acceptance note, Cde Tax Rantao used the platform to share the experiences of living in exile with those who attended the official handover ceremony He once again expressed excitement at living long enough to witness and live in a free and democratic South Africa.
