Sobukwe's sacrifices not remembered

I am very disappointed that the government only honours ANC members and not the heroes of the nation.

This is sad. The ANC is not the only organisation that fought for freedom. The PAC's Robert Simangaliso Sobukwe sacrificed his life for us to be where we are today. He played a big role in the freedom struggle, but he has not been honoured. This shows, no matter how hard you work, if you are not an ANC member you will not be recognised. Sobukwe was only on Robben Island for eight years but he faced bigger challenges as a prisoner than Nelson Mandela and Govan Mbeki did.
