Even if we did our 67 minutes of service on Wednesday, in all likelihood, we ticked it off a to do list and went back to our lives when it was over. We should remember, however, that that’s the one thing Nelson Mandela never did. Video courtesy of JAY NAIDOO.

Instalment four of our Nelson Mandela video series features the establishment of Umkhonto we Sizwe and Madiba’s appointment as Commander-in-Chief.

He further goes on to discuss the infamous Rivonia Trial. We gain insight to the real risk and possibility of death he and his comrades faced. He shares his trepidation and the intimidation he battled with, but he inspires us all with his unrelenting resolve as he stood his ground in the face of the illegitimacy of Apartheid. DM
