Parson Dimpho: A fitting tribute to a great leader. Dr. Sisulu may not be a household name to many on this BB and throughout the US but his tireless and fruitful work in behalf of indigenous black self- determination and governance in SA speaks for itself. To the Sisulu family, a job indeed well done. QED
