On the 6th of November, 1964, political activist and composer of many South African freedom songs, Vuyisilli Mini was condemned to death. Leaving his cell his jailer sarcastically asked him if he was going to sing on his way to the gallows. On his way to the hangman’s rope, Vuyisili Mini and two others who will be hung with him, as well as all the prisoners of Pretoria intoned one of the songs written by Mini : “Watch Out Verwoerd!” (“The Black Man is coming!”). South Africa, known for its brutal past, possesses a hidden treasure richer than its underground gold and diamonds, a more powerful arm than its tanks and AK-47 : song and music. You can kill a man, but his song lives on.
