Pan Africanists must unite now

This is a call to all Pan Africanists within the length and breadth of Azania. It's high time to stand up and be counted among the main role players of national democratic revolution.

I'm challenging all the socialists and Pan Africanists on this much-debated but never tried idea of forming the Azanian bloc to really give The Charterists bloc (ANC) an opposition which is African oriented and not the kind of opposition DA and now Cope are dishing out.

The Pan Africanist formations need to rise to the occasion to champion the interests and aspirations of the people or we will be, as prophets of doom have already said, dying a silent death.

The first and foremost thing to do is to portray us, the Pan Africanists organisations, as the government-ready formations. The target is no longer the oppressive regime but the needs and necessities of the majority.

I therefore call upon the leadership, members and veterans of the PAC, Azapo, Sopa, the new APC and APM to swallow their pride and put egos aside for the sake of the realisation of Mangaliso Sobukwe, Anthony Lembede, Zeph Mothopeng, Elias Ntloedibe and Bantubonke Biko's dreams. Preaching the same gospel from different camps will never help us.
