Sobukwe would not be proud of PAC divisions: Mbinda

Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) leader in Parliament, Luthando Mbinda, says their first party president, Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe would not be proud of the current divisions within the organisation.

Mbinda was speaking at the 38th anniversary of Sobukwe’s death at the University of Fort Hare in Alice in the Eastern Cape on Saturday.

He urged PAC members to emulate Sobukwe’s selflessness.

Mbinda says, “Sobukwe was not a factionalist, Sobukwe was a leader, Sobukwe loved his people and members of this organisation. Sobukwe obviously wouldn’t have loved to see the status of the PAC as we speak that is why we said we must use this day to rededicate ourselves to the ideas of Sobukwe.”

Sobukwe who was the founder of PAC died of cancer in 1978 at the age of 54 in Kimberley.
