Doctor Wilson Conco - Was post of national president of A.N.C a little outsize for this soft-spoken doc? This 37-year-old medical doctor has thrown his wisdom and his spirit into the common fight for a better South Africa. Wilson Zamindlela Conco got his earliest lessons in politics whilst a medical student at the University of the Witwatersrand. We also find Dr. Conco presiding over the 1955 Congress of the People at Kliptown, Johannesburg, the meeting which launched the Freedom Charter. He was already on the executive of the Natal A.N.C.
