Chimurenga 3: “Biko in Parliament” (Published – November 2002)

Chimurenga 3: “Biko in Parliament” (Published – November 2002)

“Mandela was not the only head of state taken in by Koagne. Le king kept snapshots of himself with many a man of power, among them Mobutu Sese Seko and Denis Sassou Nguesso […] He took Mobutu for 15 million dollars. Blaise Compaoré of Burkina Faso lost 40 million to him. Sassou, Etienne Eyadéma of Togo, several high officials of Gabon, Tanzania and Kenya, a member of the Spanish government and an ex-operative of the Israeli Mossad were bamboozled as well.” – Dominique Malaquais (Blood Money: A Douala Chronicle).

Lesego Rampolokeng: “there’s a politics tied up with every letter i knock out; how would i be able to rattle brain-cells if it’s in a language only my number-callers would find attachment to? […]no declaration of colonial-servitude comfort this: i’d have to spend the rest of my life learning setswana so as to be sufficiently equipped to wage war or make love in it […] i can’t go into hibernation that long.” (talking to Kgafela oa Magogodi)
