In memory of Biko and the ‘Human Face’

12 September 2016, marked the 39th anniversary of the brutal murder of Bantu Stephen Biko by the South African security police in a prison cell in Pretoria.

Rhodes University Vice Chancellor, Dr Sizwe Mabizela, writes ‘We also recommit ourselves to advancing the ideals for which he was prepared to sacrifice his young life, and through eradicating the deep inequality and social injustice that still scar our land we may be true to Biko’s ideal, that:

“In time, we shall be in a position to bestow on South Africa the greatest possible gift – a more human face.”  On this day, we salute this great son of our soil!’

Coinciding with this event, the Rhodes Business School hosted the second  Archbishop Thabo Makgoba Development Trust  (ATMDT) annual lecture on Values Based Leadership. Former President Kgalema Motlanthe was the speaker.

In these difficult times it is all too easy to think that South Africa has lost its face forever.

BUT WATCH THIS VIDEO. IT WILL GIVE YOU HOPE THAT THE HOPE OF THE ‘HUMAN FACE’ IS STILL WITH US!
