Myeza's critique was published on 4 May, 1987 by the Sowetan newspaper, under the heading 'Force White Voters Ignore'. As I understand it, his critique sought not only to expose the uselessness of this election to Black people, but also the dangerously deceptive role of white liberal organisations in 'mainstream' South AfriKKKan politics.
On numerous occasions some of us have made a call for pan Afrikanist/Black consciousness/Afrocentric movements to unshackle themselves from egocentric politics and what Mwalimu Mphutlane wa Bofelo aptly refers to as 'party nationalism. And that they should find each other and put a sincere effort into developing something that can be referred to as a Black radical agenda.
Many of these rebellions are youth driven. There are calls for governments to step down. In reaction, in some countries the state has been very brutal (killing and kidnapping people). This happens even in countries where the governing parties have an anti-colonial or anti-imperialist credentials.
It is us Black people who engage in all this msunery. Not Solidarity or AfriForum! That's how heartless we are. Then we want to turn around and call Solidarity racist for using their membership subscriptions and other funding, to build 'Afrikaans' educational institutions? WTF?
uBab'Mugabe didn't just fight British settler-colonialism in Zimbabwe and white racism, but he also supported (not just theoretically), the Liberation Movement (which the DA was not part of) in Southern Afrika, by among others, providing protection, accommodation, training and passage to the leaders of the BCM, PAC and ANC and their armed wings (Azanla, Apla and MK).
