  • Transcript: 1984 March 12 Sowetan: U.S. Congressman want unconditional release of Madiba. Resolution introduced last month by bi-partisan group of 2 Democrats & 2 Republicans, led by Congressman George W Crockett of Michigan, a former Judge & member of Black Congressional Caucus. It now has 79 sponsors. CT. Leader of ANC, NM, rejects offer: he would defy any attempt to release him & restrict him to the Transkei: determined to return to his home in Soweto & will not stay in Transkei. Die Burger: Mandela weier vrylating 13 Winnie Mandela appears on Bop T.V. 15 Madiba records sell well. Record calling for the release of NM has made a big impression on pop charts after only one week. “Free NM” by the Specials – a multi-racial group – is no. 4 on Capitol Radio charts & no. 68 on the national charts. 16 Die Burger: ‘n Ander Student wou weet of biskop Tutu N.M. as sy leier sou aanvaar as NM vry is was. Hierop het gevantwoord: “Ja, ek sou hom as my leier aanvaar, al stem ek nie saam met die huidige metodes van die ANC nie.” 17 H.B.P. 120/80 taken immediately after breakfast
