A job well done by a revolutionary who saw the wisdom of bringing about changes through the ballot box. Dr Brigalia Bam and Winnie Mandela caught the eye of Nelson Mandela while studying. The two Xhosa girls captured his imagination. He went for Winnie wooing her with chocolates and other sweet things which comrade Winnie shared with Brigalia. he later married Comrade Winnie who is the “mother of the nation”. Comrade Brigalia is our “mother of democracy”.
Winnie lead the revolution and when it was won Brigalia ensured free and fair elections. Let us not forget the contribution of the “two Xhosa girls”. Today we pay tribute to the one. A job well done.
