NEHAWU mourns the passing
of Cde Fidel Castro

Cde Fidel Castro

"I’ll be 90 years old soon. Soon I’ll be like all the others. The time will come for all of us, but the ideas of the Cuban communists will remain as proof on this planet that if they are worked at with fervour and dignity, they can produce the material and cultural goods that human beings need, and we need to fight without truce to obtain them.” Fidel Castro.

The National Education Health and Allied Worker Union [NEHAWU] mourns the passing of Comandante Fidel Castro Ruz, the father of independent revolutionary Cuba and a model champion of the liberation struggle against American imperialism.

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.
