DM2001011804:SAED:POLITICS:SOCIAL:MAR1957 – Worlds Longest Walk To Work – And boycott becomes the latest political bomb. Alexandra boycotters, walking 500 miles a month, beat world records. Azikwelwa! For all its fierce passion and aggressive power, this slogan of the bus boycott in Johannesburg and Pretoria is in the Passive Voice. No one uses the active voice form ‘Ningazikhweli!’ (Don’t board them) and ‘Angizikhweli!’ (I don’t board them). The passive voice form expresses the mute long suffering and frustration of a voiceless people. (Photograph by Drum Photographer Baileys Archives)
