The African National Congress (ANC) today (21 August 2009) joins many South Africans in wishing struggle veteran and former Rivonia Treason trialist Ahmed Kathrada a happy 80th birthday.
With Comrade Kathrada's birthday being celebrated in just a month after that of struggle icon Nelson Mandela, the ANC is proud to have produced leaders of the calibre of Kathrada, Madiba, Dennis Goldberg, Andrew Mlangeni and many others who have sacrificed all to ensure that we enjoy the constitutional democracy we have today.
A veteran of our liberation struggle and one of the long-serving political prisoners on Robben Island and Pollsmoor Maximum Prison, Comrade Kathrada (who is fondly known as "Comrade Kathy") has been an inspiration to all of us for the role he has played in making South Africa a better place.
May the years continue to be good for you. Happy birthday Comrade Kathy.
