Umkhonto we Sizwe, Spear of the Nation, was arguably the last of the great liberation armies of the twentieth century—but it never got to “march triumphant into Pretoria.” MK—as it was known—was the armed wing of the African National Congress, South Africa’s liberation movement, that challenged the South African apartheid government.

    genuine Confucian The S.A. African National Congress rocket attack on Voortrekkerhoogte background data, characteristics, tactics & illustrations: special report, Michael Spence Lowdell Morris, Willem Steenkamp, Terrorism Research Centre (Cape Town, South Africa), , History, 88 pages.   Nelson Mandela's African National Congress rose from a local liberation movement to govern Africa's richest country, but scandals and mismanagement have tainted its once glorious image. Mandela, who died Thursday at 95, leaves behind a party that won equal rights for all South Africans 19 years ago and improved the lives of millions.

      Images of the dead played all over television and South Africa, going through a touchy transition to the Mandela and African National Congress era, and a commission was ordered to investigate.   The indications have been that the African National Congress is hoping to serve as a catalyst for a mass rising, rather than to launch a conventional guerrilla war against Africa's strongest power.
