Madhuku Says He Was Inspired By Mandela In Joining Motlanthe Commission

Motlanthe Commissioner Lovemore Madhuku has said that he agreed to join the Commission so that people can hold on to the positive changes brought about by the so-called ‘New Dispensation’. He likened himself to South African liberation icon Nelson Mandela who reconciled with whites after his release from a 27-year jail term. Said Madhuku

Yes, I know they would be elements in the new dispensation that are of the old order, but they are a new thing and we have to move and hold on to advantages that come with this. I can also give you an example of Mandela, 27 years in prison under that apartheid regime, but he still came out to work with the once oppressors.

I have colleagues, who kept reminding me when I was in the commission; hours and hours ‘you were beaten’. Yes, we were beaten and so on. Up to this day, I don’t understand why I should not have been in the commission that seeks to ensure we end such acts.
