South Africa’s anti-apartheid political party the African National Congress has produced a lot of leaders but one can certainly not forget its principal spokesperson Oliver Reginald Tambo.

He was the acting president of the ANC, serving his role primarily in exile.

Through his almost 30 years working in foreign countries, he brought the plight of black South Africans under the apartheid regime to the attention of the world.

Before his death on April 24, 1993, Oliver, otherwise known as Comrade O.R. through his active role and vision for the ANC left a lasting heritage on South Africans, one that led to the country’s new democratic constitution.

To celebrate his legacy, Face2Face Africa shares with you 10 of his greatest quotes.
