In 2017 we introduced the theme of ‘Celebrating South Africa’ - so we could highlight important figures who have contributed positively to our country's history. Fittingly, the same year marks the centenary of the birth of Oliver Reginald Tambo. This series commemorates his legacy by depicting the roles he played at various stages of his life and political career in securing a free, democratic and culturally dynamic South Africa.

‘Comrade Oliver Tambo’, as he was affectionately known, was a founding member of the African National Congress (ANC) Youth League and between 1944 and his untimely passing in 1993, he took on various leadership roles in the party including General Secretary, National Chairperson, Deputy President and President.

Although Comrade OR did not fully experience the liberated and democratic dispensation we now enjoy, he spent the better part of his life standing up for those very ideals and for this, his legacy lives on.
