DM1999121303:POLITICS:PERSONALITY:MAY1959 – New Africanist Leader And Political Tough Talker – There is a new name in the political melting pot: Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe. Young, intellectual, uncompromising. He has risen above the heads of the veterans to become leader of the Pan Africanist Congress, the voice of South Africa’s bristling, black nationalism. The name Mangaliso means ‘wonderful’. After the split with the African National Congress he organised on hebhalf of the Africanists. Then all of a sudden, he was catapulated into the headlines with his election as the first president of the new Pan-Africanist Congress whose cry is Africa for the Africans.
