This is according to Thando Sipuye, after his visit to the Karoo Town of Graaff-Reinet in the Eastern Cape for the burial of Dinilesizwe Sobukwe a few weeks ago.
He also observed the glaring absence of media at the funeral of Dini Sobukwe, son of the founder of the Pan Africanist Congress, Robert Sobukwe.
