Men of Dynamite: Pen Portraits of MK Pioneers edited by Rashid Seedat & Razia Saleh
Men of Dynamite tells the story of the band of mainly young Indian men who lived in the vicinity of Fordsburg, Fietas and surrounding areas that were drawn into the armed struggle in the early 1960s. They were amongst the earliest and most resolute recruits to this new mode of resistance. Some were drawn into underground and sabotage units of the South African Communist Party (SACP) and shortly thereafter into Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) when it was launched on 16 December 1961.
They were active in carrying out many acts of sabotage in the early days of the armed struggle and many paid dearly for their involvement... read chapter 1, chapter 2, chapter 3, chapter 4, and chapter 5.
