Cde Fidel Castro

The African National Congress turns 105 years old.

This tremendous achievement is the result of the dedication, sacrifice and hard work of millions of people, in South Africa and across the world, who acted in unity to ensure that we can live in a free South Africa. Many of you present here today are part of those who fought alongside the ANC and the broad Mass Democratic Movement to achieve the freedoms we enjoy today.

This celebration is your celebration, your victory Comrade Oliver Reginald Tambo would have celebrated 100 years of age had he lived until 2017. We dedicate this year – his centenary – to him.

NEHAWU celebrates the life and times of Oliver Reginald Tambo

Cde O R Tambo

“We have a vision of South Africa in which black and white shall live and work together as equals in conditions of peace and prosperity” OR Tambo

The National Education Health & Allied Workers Union [NEHAWU] celebrates the life and times of the longest serving President of the African National Congress [ANC] from 1967 until 1991, Reginald Oliver Kaizana Tambo. While we celebrate 99 years since the birth of Comrade OR we must reflect on the South Africa we sought to build and the vision he had for this great Nation.

According to him, he had other plans for his life. He initially wanted to be a minister of the Anglican Church but the desire to fight for the political liberation of all South Africans against the National Party government won. He dedicated his entire life without reservation in the struggle for emancipation of the working class and the poor against white monopoly rule.
