The Foundation was delighted to hear that the African National Congress had bestowed its highest order, the Isithwalandwe/Seaparankoe award, on Denis Goldberg. President Ramaphosa, in bestowing this honour on Denis and several others said: “Their contribution to the struggle for humane social relations must continue to guide and inspire our actions. During the course of our struggle for freedom, the African National Congress has bestowed its highest order, Isithwalandwe/Seaparankoe, on cadres who have made an outstanding contribution to the liberation struggle.

These comrades, as illustrated by the literal translation of Isithwalandwe, “are the ones who wear the plumes of the rare bird”, and have shown themselves to be among the bravest warriors of our people in pursuit of social justice.”
