2020-06-14 | 35 Years Since the Murder of Thami Mnyele by Apartheid Dead Squads

Thami mnyele (10 December 1948 – 14 June 1985) 14 June, 1985 | On this day, 35 years ago, the South African artist Mnyele and 11 fellow political activists were murdered by Apartheid dead squads in Gaborone, Botswana, where they lived in exile. His name continues to inspire new generations of artists and changemakers in South Africa and worldwide.

Coming week ZAM Magazine will publish The River Of Life Within and Around Us, a story by Marnix De Bruyne on Mnyele's life and the Amsterda artist residency named after him - a breeding space for over a hundred African artists since its launch in 1990. Watch this space!
