PE Youth Congress, one of the many organisations that joined the UDF. Jack
was instrumental in organising the consumer boycott campaign (EC). He was
arrested, jailed and tortured for his role in the movement. Before Mandela’s
release, Jack was amongst the political consultants during the democratic
negotiations but decided to finally finish his studies and chose education above
A story of sheer determination and triumph with commendations by Thabo Mbeki,
Dali Mpofu and Kgalema Motlanthe.
