DM2001071102:SAED:POLITICS:PERSONALITY:DEC1958 – Africanists Cut Loose – Robert Sobukwe. It was one of the stormiest conferences for many a day. Tempers flared, sticks were brandished. But it was not violence which made the drama. The high moment, the real tension came with the decision of te Africanists to split from the Transvaal Congress. Robert Sobukwe, Witwatersrand lecturer and chief Africanist theoretician, declaims: "We shall think of co-operation with other races when we have come into our own."
