OVERVIEW OF THE PARK
Cuba’s involvement in Africa is a remarkable tale of selflessness, unconditional support and the invaluable contributions to the cause of freedom, justice and development which spans more than four decades.
Dick Mokoena is a long-standing member of Freedom Park’s Names Verification Committee. Also, he is a member of MK that went into exile in Angola during the liberation struggle. The purpose of the interview was two-fold: as R&D, we are developing profiles / biographies for each NVC member. Secondly, Mr Mokoena wished to speak about his time in exile, particularly MK / ANC camps in Angola.
Freedom Park bids a teary farewell to Ma Agnes Msimang, a struggle heroine, gender activist and a true servant of the people. She served as a deputy chief representative to India and trained Indian school children about South Africa’s struggle for liberation as well as the signing of the national anthem. Indeed she was a surrogate mother to many activists both inside the country and those living in exile.
