  • Transcript:
    *It is a phenomenal leader who can succeed in exile to keep united a vast multi-racial orga- isation with divergent schools of thought, with a membership deployed in distant continents, and a youth seething with anger at the repression of their people; a young who believe that anger alone without resources and proper planning can help to overthrow a racist regime. O.R. achieved all this. To political and common law prisoners inside the country, to foreign freedom fighters, diplomats, Heads of States, OR was acknowledged as a shining example of a smart and balanced leader who was sure to help restore the dignity of the oppressed people and put their destiny firmly in their hands.
