In his tribute to his Comrade Shadrack Msizeni Maphumulo yesterday, Comrade Greg Mashaba had asked I post these two struggle songs in honour of this fallen hero of the liberation struggle. http://uncensoredopinion.co.za/personal-tribute-shadrack-msizeni-maphumulo-ziyohamba-izinsizwa-ziyosala-izibongo/
I couldn’t do it yesterday due to pressing commitments elsewhere. I post here today President Jacob Zuma leading the songs Thina Sizwe and Mhla Sibuyayo at the reburial of JB Marks.
About John `Beaver` Marks
Uncle J. B., as he was affectionately known t, was truly a hero of our struggle. His long history of courageous leadership of the cause of liberation, his dauntless championing of the aspirations of the working people, deservedly made his name a household word among the oppressed and exploited people throughout the length and breadth of the land, inspiring confidence among the masses and striking awe into the hearts of the enemy – the ruling class and the white racialists.
