The struggle veteran and friend of Nelson Mandela is having his 85th birthday today.

This anti-apartheid struggle veteran spent 26 years imprisoned with his close friend and confidant Nelson Mandela.

He once said he remembers, when they landed on Robben Island, Mandela’s words were: ‘We are no longer leaders, we are now just prisoners. Because we don’t make policy, we don’t give instructions. Our leaders are outside of prison, they make policy, they give instructions, and we are ordinary prisoners.’

Happy Birthday uncle “Kathy”
