Madiba records sell well. Record calling for the release of NM has made a big impression on pop charts after only one week. “Free NM” by the Specials – a multi-racial group – is no. 4 on Capitol Radio charts & no. 68 on the national charts.
Die Burger: ‘n Ander Student wou weet of biskop Tutu N.M. as sy leier sou aanvaar as NM vry is was. Hierop het gevantwoord: “Ja, ek sou hom as my leier aanvaar, al stem ek nie saam met die huidige metodes van die ANC nie.”
