History

The Chief Representatives of the African National Congress working in the foreign missions around the world did not, on the whole, leave records of the history of their office in their files. (Reports of their work were sent to the ANC headquarters in Lusaka and the information should be available in that archive.) Lacking in the mission archives is composite information on when they were opened, who were the first incumbents, who followed, the dates involved and so on.

The assassination of Dulcie September in Paris is an exception. Ms. September the Chief Representative of the ANC for France, Switzerland and Luxembourg, was shot in the head at around 10a.m. on Tuesday the 29th March 1988, on the 4th floor at 28 rue des Petites-Ecuries. She had been working in Paris since July 1983 and had established a reputation for effectiveness and simplicity. She was warm, intelligent and well-loved. Many thousands of French people attended her funeral carrying banners acclaiming `Dulcie etait notre amie’ (Dulcie was our friend). The archive has a full collection of the press reports, letters and tributes that poured into the ANC office.

Before Dulcie September, Neo Nmuzana was the ANC representative based in Paris and he was possibly the first person to hold the post which had an extensive brief from the NEC. The early 1980′s was a difficult time to establish an ANC base. Thatcherism was beginning to take hold in the United Kingdom. Mrs. Margaret Thatcher, the Conservative Prime Minister of the U.K. from 1979-1990 had publicly referred to Mandela as a “terrorist”. She was vehemently opposed to sanctions against South Africa on the basis of her avowed support for ‘free market economics.’ The ANC offices were dependent on their contacts with the trades unions and sympathetic groups like Oxfam and Amnesty International. The CGT (Confederation Generale du Travail) were staunch in their support of Nmuzana’s work and even more so when Dulcie extended the ANC bases.

The French government was anxious to maintain its links with the Apartheid Government. Its nuclear programme and sale of arms to South Africa were overriding interests that smothered the growing moral imperatives. Dulcie worked tirelessly to mobilise French opposition and as she did so the paperwork piled up and the files burst at the seams. She established contact with NGO’s, women’s organisations, trades unions, and political groupings of various shades. As events in South Africa changed official French attitudes to some degree, she forged a working relationship with the French Government and the foreign embassies.

MRAP (Mouvement Contre le Racisme et pour l’Amitie entre les Peuples) were supportive from the start of the ANC Mission, and the UFF (l’Union des Femmes Francaises) were helpful to Dulcie organising meetings, seminars, etc. Two weeks before she was murdered Dulcie spoke at an International Women’s Day meeting of the UFF at Trignac en Loire attended by over 200 people.

After Dulcie was murdered, Solly Smith was sent to the Paris Office. It was then discovered that he was in the employ of the South African police and had infiltrated the ANC. Michael Msizi was appointed and closed the mission in 1992.
