Deputy Speaker, as we come to the end of Oliver Reginald Tambo Month, it is important to note that Oliver Tambo was an internationalist. He understood that the freedom of his people could not be divorced from the freedom of all people elsewhere in the world.
He sought to build strong bonds of solidarity with other nations, not only so that South Africa might be free, but so that together we could build a better world.
There are few individuals in our history who embody this desire more than Isithwalandwe Oliver Reginald Tambo. His singular contribution to the course of freedom will be felt for many generations to come.
Oliver Tambo was not only the President of the ANC during the worst excesses and most extreme repression of the apartheid regime, but he was also the leader of a global movement to eradicate a system that was rightfully defined to be a crime against humanity.
Let us all cherish freedom for all. I thank you. [Applause.]
