    What the Centurion did was so humbling and appreciated. They did what was never done by any brach of the ANCYL. I get the sense that there is a lot of ANCYL members who do not know who Anton Lembede was.

    This was the first President of the ANCYL and his secretory was Nelson Mandela. He was well educated,he held a BA Degree, LLB and a Master degree. He studied Law. I can safely brag and after him no any other President of the ANCYL has ever broke his record in terms of credentials since 1947.

    One or two of his quatations are ‘Africa for Africans” another one is “My heart yearns for a new Africa,Africa that is gone,but I shall labour for an Africa free and strong among the nations of the world”

    He was extremely eloquent and brilliant. He died at the age of 33.
