This document supplements the material we published in Revolutionary History Vol.

Sharpeville rocked the Herrenvolk state as never before. He left a letter for Ben Kies which attempted to explain the reasons for his departure. The movement lost some of its foremost thinkers in the seventies, Hoses Wessels and Ben Kies The split with Tabata deepened. We were told that the NEF was too advanced for young Africans.
