THE HONOUR TO SERVE: RECOLLECTIONS OF AN UMKHONTO SOLDIER/JAMES NGCULU

  • E.T. Barnard

Abstract

James Ngculu was one of those young South Africans who had chosen to dedicate their lives to the battle against apartheid. The 1976 uprising in Soweto motivated him to join Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK), the military wing of the African National Congress (ANC). During his years in exile, he occupied a variety of posts within the MK, which varied from Camp Politics Instructor, to Camp Commissar. He was also one of the founding members of the MK Military Intelligence wing, which played an important role in the struggle against apartheid. He also occupied an array of important governmental posts after the ANC’s electoral victory in 1994. The honour to serve is a memoir of his time as a freedom fighter in the MK.
