History

The ANC Mission for the Federal Republic of Germany and for Austria was opened by Tony Seedat in 1981 in Bonn. Although a separate office was not opened in Austria, a letter from Peter Fleissner in Vienna dated 19 November 1980, to Oliver Tambo suggests that the Austrian Chancellor, Mr Kreisky might provide some financial help for that. Austria had sent an agricultural machine and other financial support to the Solomon Mahlangu Freedom College (SOMAFCO) and in 1980 three concerts for Abduallah Ebrahim were sold out, but a separate Austrian mission was not considered.

A strong Anti-Apartheid base had been established both in Austria and Germany before the Bonn office opened. Tony spoke German and he was immediately occupied campaigning against a consortium including German, American, British, Swiss, French and Belgian bankers who gave South Africa a $250 million credit. In an interview with Tony Seedat he related that from the beginning the Mission developed links with Church groups, with Afro-Asian solidarity organisations and that they won over anti-communists. These groups supported the office financially at first and then the Mission began to generate its own income. They produced postcards and posters of children, women and workers as well Indian Mogul art and Masai art, which they sold at meetings with the ANC literature sent from abroad. A poster ‘Apartheid is War’ became widely known. They sold silver chains and earring with the symbol of the ANC spearman, a popular item which brought a boost to their funds.

Ambassadors of all the embassies in Germany were invited by the ANC Mission to South African National Days, like Women’s Day on August 9, and they received donations and assistance from countries such as Sweden. Vast amounts of medicines, educational materials, toys, musical instruments were collected and German visitors and workers were sent to Somafco in Tanzania. The office grew apace. They had 4 rooms with 5 or 6 computers, regular volunteers and a small dedicated staff.

After a year Dr. Aziza Seedat, his wife, joined Tony and her work as a doctor and writer became central to the Mission. She wrote a book ‘Medicine under Apartheid’ in German, published by IDAF which sold widely and brought funds to the office. She collaborated with a German writer to produce a book of poetry written by South African women, illustrated by Dumile Feni. It sold out. Among other IDAF publications they were involved in were Women under Apartheid and Workers under Apartheid. At the same time they arranged for James Phillips (the ‘South African Paul Robeson’) to go to Germany where for two years he trained The Bremer Choir to sing African songs. The record they cut ‘Amandla’, sold in thousands.

The South African Embassy tried to counter the work the Mission was doing, so Seedat appeared on television at least once a month, broadcasting to Germany, Austria and Sweden with “good statistics on poverty and health, and the simple message that racism is bad.” As events unfolded with the destruction of Mozambique and Angola he said ‘Apartheid is War’. From the beginning the Mission cooperated with the growing Greens movement, addressing conferences all over the country. A peace rally held against South Africa’s cross-border raids was attended by 4000 people. They were addressing 10 meetings a week at all of which they mounted exhibitions of photographs, often supplied by Afropix. Slide shows were also popular. Money came into the Mission from 4 or 5 concerts a week. Abdullah Ibrahim gave 30 concerts in Germany which were packed out. Other musicians, Miriam Makeba, Dudu Pokwana, Julian Bahula came as well. A highlight was a concert for Winnie Mandela. ‘Music from 5 Continents’ an Italian conception, held in Hamburg drew and audience of 100,000.

Oliver Tambo forged links with German business and with Austrian Chancellor Kreisky who called a meeting of the business elite at the Renner Institute for Social Democracy. Kreisky who ‘had never had a Black to speak’ invited Tambo to do so. He impressed the gathering and became popular in Germany where he was always welcome. We are indebted to Tony Seedat for most of the above information.

At the end of 1989 Seedat had a mild heart attack and left the Mission . The first meetings with Afrikaners took place in Frankfurt and Wuppertal which he attended. On 1st January 1990 Sankie Nkondo was appointed Chief Representative at Bonn. On 2nd February 1990, she received a letter from Professor J Roelofse of the S.A. Embassy in Bonn congratulating her on the unbanning of the African National Congress. However by October 1993 Nkondo’s place was taken by Don Ngakane who was dealing with the donation of Nina Hagen’s royalties for her song “So Bad” and with the process of closing the Mission prior to the election and after.

The business of the Mission in Berlin in the German Democratic Republic (GDR) was for the most part concerned with the South African students studying and training in East Germany. The office dealt with such cultural events as plays at the Bertoldt Brecht Theatre and visits by South Africans to the GDR as well as caring for those who needed hospital treatment etc. The Mission was run by Tony Mongale before 1988 and after that by Sindiso Mfenyana until it closed in 1994.
