Ahmed Kathrada with Adelia Douw – Freedom of the City Ceremony 26 November 2015

 

 

The spirit and nostalgia evoked by the Freedom of the City celebrations in honour of struggle hero, Ahmed Kathadra, brought back bittersweet memories for those of the guests who lived through, and were part of, the emotion and euphoria of the protest rallies, trade union, UDF and Human Rights concerts on campuses and in stadiums across Cape Town and South Africa.

We salute Ahmed Kathrada, Uncle Kathy, as a Rivonia Triallist, politician, Gentle Giant, comrade, advisor and quarry-mate of Madiba on Robben Island. During his speech His life attests to the truth that power found him incorruptible.

He remains a sun on the African skyline.
